In the world of MMA, most of the attention is usually on what is happening in the UFC, but there are several other organizations putting together great events. This weekend is filled to brimming with a number of great fight nights, which includes KSW 59. This event is being held in Poland and will be taking place at 2 PM EST. The main card has 8 fights on it, so let’s do a quick rundown of all those fights so you can bet against their MMA odds.
KSW 59: Fight Code Betting Preview
Lionel Padilla Vs Adrian Bartosinski
The main card opens with a Welterweight bout between a pair of fighters who have just 1 loss between them. Padilla comes into this fight with an 8-1 pro record, but he has recovered nicely after his lone loss, winning 4 in a row. Bartosinski has gone unbeaten to this point in his career, going 9-0, with each of his last 7 wins coming inside the distance. I think he extends that run with a KO win here.
Konrad Dyrschka Vs Lukasz Rajewski
Next up is a Lightweight bout between a pair of fighters who look to be very evenly matched. Dyrschka is now on a run that has seen him go unbeaten in 11 fights, with one of those ending as a No Contest. 2 of his last 3 have finished early. Rajewski is finding his way back after losing 3 in a row and has now won back-to-back fights, but I think that positive run ends here, as I like Dyrschka to win by decision.
Savo Lazic Vs Sebastian Rajewski
This Lightweight bout might be one of the toughest to predict, as both fighters have had trouble maintaining winning runs. Lazic is 10-5 overall, but he has won just 2 fights in his last 5. The majority of his fights don’t go the distance. Rajewski saw the best run of his career, 5 straight wins, come to an end with a loss last time out. I like Rajewski to get the KO win in this one.
Jason Radcliffe Vs Damian Janikowski
This middleweight bout features a pair of men who have the power to get the job done early. Radcliffe is on a nice run of 3 straight wins ahead of this bout, with his career mark sitting at 16-7, but he is going to have his hands full with Janikowski, who is 5-3 and looking to snap out of a rough patch of form. This is a close one, but I am giving Radcliffe the edge as the slight underdog.
Darko Stosic Vs Michal Wlodarek
These two Light Heavyweights saw their pro careers get off to fast starts, but both are now in need of a win. Stosic in particular is looking for some sort of positive out of this fight, as he is on a run that has seen him lose 3 in a row. Wlodarek is coming into this fight on the heels of a win, but that snapped a 2-fight losing streak. I am taking Stosic by KO.
Krystian Kaszubowski Vs Michal Pietrzak
These two Welterweights are very closely matched in many ways, which should help make this fight a good one. Kaszubowski has just 1 loss in his 10 pro fights, but he has shown some grit, winning back-to-back fights after taking that first loss. At 9-4, Pietrzak has not been quite as successful, but he is coming off a win. Kaszubowski for the win in this one.
Antun Racic Vs Sebastian Przybysz
This is a great matchup between a pair of fighters who occupy the #1 and #2 spots in the Bantamweight division in Poland. Przybysz is on top and has risen the ranks quickly after starting his pro career with a 7-2 record. Racic, on the other hand, is a veteran at 25-8-1, who comes into this bout having won 7 in a row. I like Racic to keep that run going.
Serigne Ousmane Dia Vs Mariusz Pudzianowski
This is an Open Weight bout between a pair of 44-year-old fighters that is not likely to go the distance. Dia has just 2 fights as a pro, both of which he won. His last fight was over in under a minute. Pudzianowski is 13-7 and, win or lose, it’s not often that his fights go the distance. I think he gets the KO win early here.
