Ante Delija vs. Denis Stojnić added to KSW 51
Very few heavyweight fighters possess the physical presence of Croatia’s Ante ‘Walking Trouble’ Delija (16-3). Standing at 6ft 5in, this man mountain already has a hugely impressive fight resume. The 29-year-old comes into KSW with back to back wins in RIZIN & PFL and also has career victories over former UFC champion Ricco Rodriguez and Valentijn Overeem. A protégé of the legendary Mirko Cro Cop, Delija possesses a 75% finishing ratio and will be aiming to make a statement in front of his home nation with another finish at KSW 51.
However, he comes up against Bosnia’s Denis ‘The Menace’ Stojnić (13-3), a man who is undefeated in the past ten years. This Bosnian bruiser is a true heavyweight veteran with almost 15 years competing as a professional fighter under his belt. During this time, he has fought in the UFC, competed against Cain Velasquez & Stefan Struve, and holds wins over notable names such as Dion Staring, Ricco Rodriguez, Mighty Mo, and Christian M’Pumbu.
