KSW 49 from the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland did not fail to disappoint. A night that quite literally had everything from dominate decisions wins to KO’s inside 30 seconds, but as with all the KSW shows this is not a one-off. These shows just get bigger and bigger.
KSW has what many are calling the best welterweight outside the UFC in Roberto Soldić who dispatched of unbeaten fighter Krystian Kaszubowski via KO, round 1 to retain his belt. Soldic is someone who will rise to the very top of this sport. I honestly think if you get a chance to see him fight live take it with both hands. Very Very special talent

In the co-main Scott Askham won the vacant middleweight title with a jumping knee in the third round to drop Michał Materla. Askham walked Materla down for most of the fight, having an answer for everything that was thrown at him, using his long limbs he was able to punish Materla with the kicks to the body, but ultimately the jumping knee put an end to Materla fight.

In the heavyweight the division we had a battle for the spot as Poland’s number one heavyweight fighter & also the person who would face current heavyweight champ Phil De Fries at KSW 50 in London. Damian Grabowski was able to put Karol Bedorf on the canvas in the first round but failed to finish him, but in the second round, he didn’t fail again. Managing to get the full mount and finish with some heavy ground & pound.

Sage Northcutt says he suffered eight fractures and had to endure a nine-hour surgery following his ONE Championship debut on Friday.
Northcutt was one of several recent high profile North American signings by ONE Championship, but his promotional debut did not go as planned at all.
On a night of massive upsets, the headline news was arguably Northcutt (11-3) getting knocked out 29 seconds into his ONE Championship debut. The American was under the impression he could stand and strike with Muay Thai veteran Cosmo Alexandre (8-1).
The Brazilian quickly set him straight on that point. The contest had barely got going when a right hand from Alexandre connected clean with the chin of the former UFC poster boy, who face planted into the ONE Championship canvas.
Twenty-four hours later, Northcutt posted a photo of himself in a hospital bed, x-rays looming over both shoulders, saying that Alexnadre inflicted eight fractures on him, requiring a nine-hour surgery to repair the damage.
“Fresh out of surgery… I had 8 fractures and a nine hour intense operation. Feeling blessed for the amazing care and all the support from ONE Championship, my family/friends and fans!” Northcutt wrote on Instagram.
No word yet on how long Northcutt will be sidelined or when he might be expected to return under the ONE Championship banner.
