KSW 87 is headed to the Czech Republic with a heavy-hitting headliner, as heavyweights Darko Stosic and Michal Martinek go head-to-head on Saturday. After suffering his first professional loss to Rodrigo Nascimento on Contender Series in 2019, Stosic fought for a few promotions such as Oktagon and ACA before signing with KSW in 2022. So far, ‘Blackbeard‘ is 1-1, with a win against Filip Stawowy at KSW 71 and a loss to Daniel Omielanczuk at KSW 75.
As for Stosic, he recently returned to the win column with a ‘Knockout of the Night‘ awarded KO of Stefan Vojcak at KSW 84 this past July. The former UFC fighter has alternated between wins and losses in his past four appearances, which includes a failed championship bid against current KSW champ Phil De Fries.
