The fight card is closed (tonight’s fight: Phil De Fries – Todd Duffee), but changes are forced by injuries. Check where to watch KSW 79 that will be a live broadcast, online stream Viaplay.
It will be a fantastic rematch. Perhaps the biggest star in the association right now, Phil De Fries (22-6, 1NC, 5 KOs, 13 subs) will defend his heavyweight belt against Todd Duffee (9-3, 1NC, 9 KOs). De Fries has been undefeated in the MMA cage for over 5 years, he has not lost his last 10 fights (he last lost in May 2017). Since April 2018, he has been the champion of the “royal” category in KSW, he has already defended the title 7 times.
Interestingly, he also has a loss against his closest rival in his record. In December 2012, at UFC 155, Duffee proved superior, winning early in the first round by TKO (punch). During KSW 79, it will not be the ob that becomes the favourite.
Injuries and random instances of players attempting to participate in the KSW 79 gala meant that the match card was about to change. The last reshuffle was announced on Wednesday (15.02). 10 days before the event, Daniel Omielańczuk had a new rival. Now he has to fight Michał Kita, not Viktor Pesta, who fell ill.
