A polarising figure, Norman Parke (27-6-1) will once again get his chance to lift gold in KSW. The Northern Irishman joined KSW in 2017 to challenge Mateusz Gamrot for the lightweight title and was on the wrong end to a razor thin decision. The pair then immediately rematched but the fight ended abruptly due to an injury.
Since then the TUF winner has won four straight fights including registering wins over former KSW welterweight champion Borys Mankowski and former featherweight champion Artur Sowinski, respectively. And now he has a chance to make it third time lucky in KSW title fights on September 14.
Known as ’The Polish Zombie’ due to his exciting fighting style and toughness, Marcin Wrzosek (14-5) is a former KSW featherweight champion. Never one to back down from a challenge, Wrzosek is stepping up to lightweight and replacing the injured Marian Ziolkowski to take on Parke for the interim KSW lightweight title. The 31-year-old is also a veteran of The Ultimate Fight having competed as a member of Team McGregor on TUF 22 where he won three fights in the house. Since his stint on the reality TV show he has went 4-2 in KSW.
Overall Wrzosek has only been stopped once in his nearly twenty-fight career.
