Polish promotion Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki on Saturday confirmed the co-main event matchups for KSW 15, scheduled for Mar. 19 at Torwar Hall in in Warsaw, Poland. Middleweight standout Mamed Khalidov will take on UFC and Strikeforce veteran Matt Lindland at the event, while light heavyweight Jan Blachowicz will fight another Team Quest member in Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.

After a breakout year in 2009, Khalidov went 1-1-1 in 2010, losing a five-round decision to Jorge Santiago and drawing with Japanese veteran Ryuta Sakurai before knocking out Yuki Sasaki on Dec. 30. The Sasaki match came at Sengoku’s year-end “Soul of Fight” event and marked the last fight on the 30-year-old’s contract with the promotion.

Lindland, meanwhile, went 1-2 in his recent stint under the Strikeforce banner.
