A trilogy bout between Mamed
and Scott
will serve as the headliner for KSW 83
“Colosseum 2”
on June 3.

The promotion announced the middleweight booking on Monday. KSW 83
takes place at the PGE Narodowy in Warsaw, Poland, and will see
square off against Salahdine
for lightweight gold in the co-main event.
Additionally, popular Polish strongman Mariusz
will meet Artur
in a featured heavyweight affair.

Askahm defeated Khalidov via unanimous decision in their first
meeting at KSW 52 in December 2019, but Khalidov exacted revenge
with a flying switch kick knockout 36 seconds into their rematch at
KSW 55 in October 2020.

The now 42-year-old Khalidov has fought twice since then, suffering
a second-round KO loss to Roberto
at KSW 65 before stopping Pudzianowski in the opening
stanza at KSW 77 this past December.

According to a release, a back injury has prevented Askham from
competing since the rematch with Khalidov. Prior to that defeat,
the six-time UFC veteran had authored a five-bout winning streak.
