Brazilian heavyweight kickboxer Guto Inocente will enter the KSW cage for the first time on Jan. 30 to battle one-time KSW title contender Michal Andryszak, promotion officials told MMA Fighting.

Inocente (8-5), who fought under the UFC and Strikeforce banners between 2012 and 2014 before starting a run inside the GLORY ring, at one point challenging Rico Verhoeven for the heavyweight gold in 2018, returns to MMA for his first bout since a first-round knockout this past September in Brazil.

Andryszak (21-9, 1 no contest) challenged for the vacant KSW belt in 2018, losing to UFC veteran Phil De Fries. The 28-year-old Polish heavyweight fought twice in 2020, stopping Ion Grigore in just nine seconds before losing to Michał Kita in his return to KSW.

KSW 58 goes down on Jan. 30 in Lodz, Poland, and is headlined by Salahdine Parnasse defending his featherweight throne against Daniel Torres. The card also features 2008 Olympic gold medalist in weightlifting Szymon Kolecki, 8-1 in MMA, against longtime veteran Martin Zawada (29-15-1).
