James Irvin vs. Mamed Khalidov and Mariusz Pudzianowski vs. James Thompson rumoured for KSW 15 on March 19th

Fresh off his failed drug test, James Irvin is set to make a trip to Poland later this month to face heavy hitter, Mamed Khalidov on the KSW 15 card in Warsaw, a fight card that could also feature strongman, Mariusz Pudzianowski facing former PRIDE vet, James Thompson

A source close to the situation revealed the news today, with Irvin stepping in for the injured Thales Leites. This move is not likely to go down well with the athletic commissions in the U.S. after Irvin tested positive for drugs just last week following a December fight.

Also expected to be on the card is another controversial figure in the form of heavyweight powerhouse, Mariusz Pudzianowski who hasn’t been seen since his “win” over Eric “Butterbean” Esch back in September at KSW 14.
