KSW

Poland’s largest MMA promotion, Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki (KSW), has a penchant for big fights and bigger fighters.

KSW harbors some of Europe’s top competitors. Below are divisional rankings for the promotion generated by the MMA-Prospects team, led by contributors Gary Friel and Fabian.

These rankings were and are compiled and maintained in the spirit of meritocracy. Fighters are graded on their standing within the promotion and recent outings, with an emphasis on the standing and quality of their opposition and their in-cage performances.

Head-to-head fight results are weighted heavily.

These rankings are current as of July 24, 2021, and will be updated as KSW continues to promote events, sign new fighters, and remove fighters from the roster.
