crushed Todd Duffee
with punches in the opening period at KSW 79, vindicating a defeat
at the hands of the American dating back to 2012.

Bajor (24-9, 0-0 KSW) is coming off a brief stint under the

Professional Fighters League
banner, where he dominated
en route to a unanimous decision in August. A former
Fight Exclusive Night heavyweight titleholder, Bajor is 7-1 as of
late and is riding a four-bout winning streak. The 34-year-old
Polish fighter boasts an 84% finishing rate with 10 stoppages by
strikes and 10 submissions.

The upcoming KSW 84 event will also feature former 135-pound
champion Sebastian
and 2012 London Olympics Greco-Roman wrestling bronze
medalist Damian
clashing with yet-to-be-announced opponents.
