The Polish promotion announced the pairing on Monday. KSW 44 takes
place at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland and also features a
heavyweight showdown between Mariusz
Pudzianowski and Karol
Wrzosek and Erbst initially squared off at KSW 39, where Erbst
claimed the 145-pound belt with a decision win. However, Erbst
missed weight ahead of his next bout and was forced to vacate the
title. Nonetheless, the 28-year-old still earned a third-round
submission of Artur
Sowinski at KSW 41 for his fifth consecutive triumph.
A cast member on Season 22 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Wrzosek
signed with KSW after falling to Julian
Erosa at the “TUF 22” finale. He has won three of his first
four appearances with the promotion, including a decision win over
Szymanski at KSW 41.
