Leo Brichta was a very popular fighter in the Octagon, but then he signed with the newly created RFA brand, which doesn’t enjoy much attention. That’s why his move wasn’t perceived in a positive way. But now he is close to a big move abroad.
One of the most talented fighters on the Czechoslovak scene is about to take a big step out of the shadows and into the limelight. According to InTheCage.pl, he will sign with the Polish organization KSW, which is one of the biggest MMA brands in the world.
Leo Brichta was supposed to make his KSW debut back in February, when the Polish organization made its first ever appearance in the Czech Republic, specifically in Liberec, but it was not possible due to the fighter’s long-settled contract with Oktagon.
Because of the contract, he was not able to fight under the RFA banner, but he still had four fights in the organization. And how was the contract? Martin Lewandowski, KSW’s promoter, was given permission by Oktagon to review the contract and did not dispute Oktagon’s position.
That’s why Brichta hasn’t appeared in KSW yet. Instead, the Polish organization was waiting for the contract to expire and that should happen at the end of April. After that, the Czech fighter can sign with the Polish brand and eventually fight there as well.
There is currently speculation in Poland that Brichta should fight at the KSW 82 gala in Warsaw in May (May 13), but this information has not been officially confirmed.
However, we do know that another Czech, Filip Macek, will appear at the May 13th event and will be making his Polish debut after leaving the Octagon.
For now, it is not even certain if Brichta will continue to fight in the RFA. The organizations have a good relationship, and several fighters will therefore be fighting under both brands. But Brichta can be such an exclusive commodity that it wouldn’t be a surprise if that’s not the case.
