Former GLORY heavyweight star Arkadiusz Wrzosek set for MMA debut at KSW 73

Wrzosek faces Tomasz Sarara at Saturday's event in Warsaw, Poland.

Former GLORY kickboxing heavyweight star Arkadiusz Wrzosek (0-0) will make his MMA debut against Tomasz Sarara (1-0) in the main event of KSW 73 this Saturday, August 20, live from Warsaw, Poland. 

Wrzosek joined KSW earlier this year after a successful run in GLORY Kickboxing, which saw him score a head kick KO win over the legendary Badr Hari, a finish which was awarded "KO of the Year" in the promotion for 2021. 

The 30-year-old will now transition to MMA after almost a 10-year career in kickboxing, one that saw him capture a number of Polish, European and international titles at both the amateur and professional ranks. To help him prepare for his MMA debut, Wrzosek called upon the help of Alistair Overeem and has been training out of Hemmer's Gym in the Netherlands. 

His opponent for KSW 73 will be fellow kickboxer-turned-MMA fighter Sarara. The 37-year-old is a near 50-fight kickboxing veteran and a student of the great Ernesto Hoost. He made his KSW and MMA debut last year with a third round TKO win over Croatia's Filip Bradaric in a huge come-from-behind victory. 

This fight pits two of the most famous and decorated strikers in Polish history and is surely not to be missed.
