It’s old-school versus the new school as MMA legend Marius Žaromskis (22-9) will challenge welterweight champion Roberto Soldić (17-3) at KSW 53: Fight Code on March 21 at the Atlas Arena in Łódź, Poland.
A former DREAM champion and a veteran of Bellator, Cage Rage and Strikeforce, 39-year-old Žaromskis comes into KSW for the very first time with the hopes of adding the KSW welterweight title to his legacy in the sport. The Lithuanian holds career wins over the likes of Sakuraba, Hayato Sakurai, Nordine Taleb and is known for his extremely wild style of attacks and unpredictability.
Champion Roberto Soldić has emerged as one of the top prospects in the entire sport ever since making his debut at KSW 41 in 2017. The Croatian, still just 25-years-old, has had a number of devastating finishes in the promotion including knockout wins over Dricus Du Plessis and the previously undefeated Krystian Kaszubowski. A fight with Žaromskis will present Soldić with his highest profile international fight to date.
