Haha.  My suspicions we're correct.  Congrats on everyone that faded the 41 year old for real money.  Terrible

I heard Salahdine renewed his contract and I guess that means they decided to let him fight more often. KSW says 2 fights a year for a fighter is enough but I think this one will be an exception.

Featherweight division is the best one KSW has so they will probably make the most out of it confronting Parnasse with what they've got.

He fights more often - makes more money for himself and for KSW.

He fights more often - Featherweight division gets more interesting because of frequency and strength of competition.

He fights more often - he gets more fame which equals to that they can make him a KSW icon quicker, so when he leaves for the UFC, he will be mentioned the same way Gamrot was mentioned in the ufc "Double champion of the KSW"

Next fight he wants is LW belt, against Marian Ziółkowski.

Marian Ziółkowski was the last fight Gamrot had before the ufc. Since then Marian won all fights in a great way.

Featherweight division is still getting its shape as there are a lot of new signings and youth that has been competing.

With that being said - Ruchala, Kaczmarczyk, Soldaev are all about 23 years old which gets me to thinking that Poland has a chance to get new UFC contenders in the future.
