The Ultimate Fighter alum and BAMMA veteran Dean Amasinger has signed a four-fight agreement to fight in the Polish fight promotion KSW.

This new agreement will actually mark the return of Amasinger to KSW. He last fought for the promotion in December 2009 where he won an impressive first round submission against Maciej Gorski.

He’ll be looking for a similar result when he competes on Feb. 25 at KSW 18 at Hala Orlen Arena in P?ock against UFC and WEC veteran Maciej Jewtuszko.

This initial bout in this multi-fight agreement will be contested at a 73kg (161-pound) catch-weight, which fits with Dean’s aspirations of dropping down to the lightweight division. Both Amasinger and Jewtuszko are coming off losses, and this is a fight both athletes will want to get back to winning ways and start 2012 on the right foot.

“I’m really excited about competing on one of the biggest and best shows in Europe,” said Amasinger. “I had a really great time in 2009 when I competed at KSW.

“I’m looking forward to a challenge against a guy who has competed at the very top level of the sport in the UFC and WEC.  This is a tough fight against an opponent I respect, and it’s also a great opportunity to make steps towards my new weight division as a potential lightweight, it’s just a shame for Jewtuszko that my first step towards lightweight is against him, as I’m going out there to win!”
