The heavyweight headliners are two highly interesting fighters.

45-year-old Mariusz Pudzianowski is a multi-time ‘World’s Strongest Man’ champion and rides a five-five winning streak, all coming by way of knockout, three of them in the first round.

His 42-year-old opponent Mamed Khalidov is the promotion’s former light heavyweight and middleweight champion. However, he never competed at heavyweight. His last appearance came in December last year, when he suffered a KO loss to Roberto Soldic.
