Račić has been a dominating force since entering the promotion in 2017, winning six fights in a row. The 30-year-old made history at KSW 51 in his native Croatia by becoming the first-ever 135lb champion in KSW history with a win over veteran fighter Damian Stasiak.

The pride of Dubrovnik successfully defended his title against top Brazilian prospect Bruno Santos in his most recent contest this past December and will aim to hold onto the title when he meets the challenging Sebastian Przybysz in a rematch of their bout from 2018.

Since their last meeting, Przybysz has had three impressive wins in a row with victories over European MMA veterans Bogdan Barbu & Lemmy ‘The Dog’ Krusic, and, most recently, he avenged his first professional loss by stopping the highly rated Jakub Wikłacz.


Now the 27-year-old will be aiming the avenge his only other loss and, in doing so, realize his dream by capturing the KSW bantamweight title from Antun Račić.

KSW 59: Fight Code takes place March 20th and is available to watch worldwide on and the KSW App on iOS & Android.
