2017 was a breakout year for KSW. On May 27th in Warsaw, Poland KSW 39 was staged with a record breaking crowd of 57,766 people in attendance, larger than any UFC event ever, the largest ever in Europe and second largest of all time behind Pride Shockwave.
The year also saw KSW’s debut in Ireland with the biggest ever non-UFC MMA event ever seen on the Emerald Isle with KSW 40 and a debut studio show at KSW 38. 2017 was rounded off with a huge pre-Christmas bash that saw the MMA debut of famous Polish actor Tomasz Osweicinski against infamous rapper Popek Monster and host of new standout fighters including Roberto Soildic and Salahdine Parnasse.
As a result KSW has been nominated for Best Promotion in the World and KSW CEO and co-owner Martin Lewandowski was also nominated for Leading Man of the Year in the tenth annual Fighters Only World MMA Awards.
