The venue, which was built by the Romans 2,000 years ago, played host to ancient gladiatorial battles and is one of the few Roman amphitheaters still intact today.

The spectacular ancient landmark, in the Croatian town of Pula, will host a night of modern-day gladiators, as FNC brings a stacked nine-fight card to the venue.

The event, which will feature three championship fights at the top of a nine-fight card, will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight, as defending champion Ivan Vitasovic takes on KSW veteran Michal Andryszak.

Pula native Vitasovic heads into the bout riding a five-fight win streak, with notable wins over Geronimo dos Santos and Oli Thompson.

He’ll take on former KSW heavyweight title challenger Andryszak, who enters the bout on a three-fight win streak, with a 100 percent finish rate, including a string of first-round stoppages.

Chief support will come from back-to-back title fights, as the promotion’s inaugural light heavyweight and welterweight titles will be contested.

Croatian challenger Matej Batinic will face unbeaten Gadzhimurad Khebdeev for the vacant light heavyweight title, while Serbia takes on Austria for the vacant welterweight crown, as Nikola Joksovic takes on Marko Kisic.
