After a draw in a controversial fight in Brazil against Japanese judoka Satoshi Ishii at AmazonFC, Brazilian fighter Paulo Filho will now have his second chance to cement a clean victory. On November 26 in the KSW 17 event held in Poland, Filho will face local athlete Mamed Khalidov. The Polish is also a veteran of major events such as Sengoku and Elite FC and has three straight victories, the last two of which were in KSW where he defeated Brazilian Daniel Acácio.
Besides the draw against Ishii, where the Japanese fighter was better throughout the entire fight, Paulo Filho was defeated in the previous two matches, against Norman Paraisy and Ronny Marques. His last victory was in March against Jackson Mora, via split decision.
In the KSW 17 fight card, aside from Paulo Filho, other well-known names in MMA will also be present, such as the Cameroonian Rameau Sokoudjou Therry and Englishman James Thompson.
