Training: I train twice a day at the same time for each part of my training, which is wrestling, BJJ, and stand up, so I really feel comfortable in each discipline.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I discovered my inner passion for competitive sports at the tender age of nine. At this time I became involved in every sport and martial arts class I could possibly attend. Martial Arts really felt like a glove and hand fit for me.
What ranks and titles have you held? To date, I have not held any titles, as my goal was simply to build a fighting track record to qualify for upper level professional fight cards. In Europe I have been ranked among the top 10 fighters, but nothing I would consider 100% official.
Do you have any heroes? Warren Buffet, as his intense focus on business success is the intense level of focus I need to become a title holder in the UFC.
What is your favorite technique? The one that was successful in my most recent victory typically. But seriously, I really don’t have any one single favorite technique. A clean, crisp, and surgical precision KO is my game plan in every fight by whatever means in terms of technique that gets the job done.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The ultimate dream for me, the opportunity to display the results of my intense training skills on the number one MMA world stage.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? YES, soon to hold a Masters in Physical Education at the Academy of Physical Education in Krakow and I am in my final year. After I graduate, I will be a multi disciplined Sports Instructor.
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked security at a night club and as a swimming instructor.
