Video: Roberto Soldic jumps cage towards middleweight champ Mamed Khalidov following KSW 63 TKO win
The thought of a straight superfight between welterweight champion Roberto Soldich and middleweight champion Mamed Khalidov is driving KSW fans crazy, and it may have taken a step further after the last promotion event.
Soldik successfully defended his 170-pound belt in the KSW 63 Main Event on Saturday, beating Patrick Kinkle by TKO in the second round. It was the sixth win in a row and the second title defense for Soldich, who took the title by winning an early win over current UFC middleweight upstart Drikus Du Plessis at KSW 45 in October 2018.
After the win, Soldik jumped into the cage and headed for middleweight promotion champion Mamed Khalidov, who recently took the title in October by winning a 36-second knockout over Scott Askham at KSW 55. Despite the fact that it all started intensely, it all generated respect. as Apparently, Soldich called a fight between champions and champion with Khalidov.

Eventually, Khalidov will enter the cage and join Soldic, where mutual respect will continue. The promotion then asked if fans wanted to see the match, and it looks like the reaction on social media has been overwhelmingly positive.
Khalidov fought an impressive streak of 15 unbeaten fights before suffering three defeats in a row. The 41-year-old bounced back by winning the title over Askham and a little revenge after Askham won a decision over Khalidov 10 months ago.
