    Default Mamed Khalidov-Melvin Manhoef Middleweight Matchup Tops KSW 23

    Mamed Khalidov-Melvin Manhoef Middleweight Matchup Tops KSW 23 Card

    Mamed Khalidov and Melvin Manhoef are once again slated to compete under Poland’s KSW banner.

    The middleweights will headline KSW 23, which takes place June 8 at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The event, which airs live via online pay-per-view, will also feature a two-round heavyweight co-headliner between former World’s Strongest Man winner Mariusz Pudzianowski and a to-be-named opponent. Additionally, UFC veteran Kendall Grove will take on surging Polish standout Michal Materla for the KSW middleweight title.

    The evening’s main card will feature a host of Polish talent, including Aslambek Saidov and Maciej Jewtuszko, who will take on to-be-announced foes at welterweight and lightweight, respectively. Karolina Kowalkiewicz will also square off with Marta Chojnoska in a 121-pound women’s catchweight bout, while Mateusz Zawadzki meets Mateusz Gamrot at lightweight.

    Khalidov was initially booked to face Manhoef on Dec. 1 at KSW 21, but Manhoef was forced to withdraw due to injury. Instead, Khalidov faced Grove, submitting the lanky Hawaiian with a second-round Achilles lock. The victory marked the sixth straight win over a UFC veteran for the 32-year-old, who has bested the likes of James Irvin, Matt Lindland and Rodney Wallace during his winning streak.

    I think they should both be in the UFC.

    Well Manhoef would have some fun match ups for sure. Leben, Wandy, Stann, etc. I don't think he'll get anywhere near a title, but a lot of fun fights for him regardless.

    I think Kabob could contend for the title, he's got a great skill set. I remember the UFC offering him a 25k/25k deal, but I guess that wasn't enough for him.

    Short night's work for Khalidov, he'll get Melvin down quick and probably heel hook him within the first round.

    UFC will probably up their original lowball offer(since he's making good bank at home without having to travel stateside) and get him into ZUFFA by end of 2013...
