Roberto Soldic will no longer defend his welterweight title at KSW 50 on Saturday.
Originally, he was set to take on Patrik Kincl, but an injury forced his opponent out of the fight. Now Michal Pietrzak will step in on short notice and the fight will take place at a catchweight of approximately 176 pounds. The promotion announced the change on Tuesday.
Soldic is 16-3 as a pro and coming off of a title defense over Krystian Kaszubowski at KSW 49 by knockout. Before that, he knocked out Vinicius Bohrer and Dricus Du Plessis. The 24-year-old Croatian is 4-1 in KSW.
Michal Pietrzak, meanwhile, will make his KSW debut when he takes on Soldic. The Polish fighter is currently 8-3 as a pro with four finishes. He last fought in May at Babilon MMA 8, where he beat Adrian Bleszynski by decision. He is currently on a three-fight winning streak.
KSW 50 goes down on Sept. 14 and will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between Philip De Fries and Luis Henrique Barbosa de Oliveira.
