After over four years away from the sport, Sweden's Niklas Bäckström (11-3) returns and will make his promotional debut at KSW 66 on January 15 in Szczecin, Poland. The 32-year-old is best known for his time in the UFC where he fought three times and won a 'Performance of the Night' bonus in his debut.
The 'King of the North' has always presented an exciting fighting style and, despite being away for so long, he faces a very tough Sebastian Rajewski (11-6), who is also known for his bonus winning performances in KSW.
Joining them is Belgium's Donovan 'Vegas' Desmae (14-7) vs. Lukasz Rajewski (11-6), the older brother of Sebastian. Desmae will be looking for his first win in KSW after losing by decision to multiple title contender Roman Szymanski at KSW 61 in a contest that was awarded 'Fight of the Night'. However, Lukasz is on an impressive three-fight win-streak and is aiming to move himself closer to title contention.
KSW 66 will be available to watch live January 15 exclusively on Viaplay in Poland, Scandinavia, & the Baltics, and worldwide on www.KSWTV.com!
