Mamed Khalidov vs Matt Lindland Set for KSW 15

MMA Rocks! Reports:

Mamed Khalidov

– 21-4-2 MMA

– 1 Win, 1 Loss, 1 Draw in Last 3 Fights

– Notable Wins: Jorge Santiago, Igor Pokrajac, Yuki Sasaki

Matt Lindland

– 22-8-0 MMA

– Lost 3 of last 4 Fights

– Notable Wins: Carlos Newton, Jeremy Horn, Kevin Casey


Middleweights Mamed Khalidov and Matt Lindland have signed to face off against each other at KSW 15. The event takes place March 19th at the Towar Hall in Warsaw, Poland.

Mamed Khalidov has been the model of inconsistency since defeating Sengoku middleweight champion Jorge Santiago in a non-title fight in November of 2009. He would drop a unanimous decision in the return fight against Santiago for the title at SRC 12, then fight to a draw against Ryuta Sakurai. Most recently, Khalidov got back on the win column at Sengoku’s year-end “Soul of Fight” card with a first round TKO victory over Yuki Sasaki.

Matt Lindland is obviously not listening to many observers who suggested he should retire after suffering another vicious knockout loss. Famed-striker Robbie Lawler sent Lindland face first in to the canvas last December at Strikeforce: Henderson vs Babalu. The loss was his third out his last four fights, only defeating Kevin Casey with a third round TKO stoppage in May of last year.
