KSW 61 took place Saturday evening, June 5, from the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The main event saw a rollercoaster fight between two KSW legends in Mariusz Pudzianowski (15-7) and Lukasz Jurkowski (17-12). It was the world’s strongest man, however, who walked away with a TKO win in the third round to claim his fifteenth career win.
In a closely contested co-main event a moment of magic from former champion Salahdine Parnasse (15-1-1) saw him submit Croatia’s Filip Pejic (15-5-2) with a lightning fast rear-naked choke.
Elsewhere on the card Serbia’s Darko Stosic (15-4) continued his fourteen-fight undefeated run at heavyweight with a first round KO win over veteran Michal Kita (20-13-1), Czech Republic’s Patrik Kincl (24-9) ended Tomasz Romanowski (13-8) winning streak to claim his second win in KSW, and Croatian light heavyweight Ivan Erslan improved to 10-1 with a first round TKO win over former TUF competitor Przemyslaw Mysiala (24-11-1).
