TRAINING: A typical day of training is almost the same as always - boxing in the morning and wrestling or jiu-jitsu in the evening.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I was very shy when I was a kid. I always loved martial arts and it helped me to get confidence. I started with Pancrase and I knew I wanted to become a fighter.
What ranks and titles have you held? I won the KSW tournament belt in Poland. I also won the SHC light heavyweight belt in Switzerland. I won a couple of grappling tournaments in Europe as well.
Do you have any heroes? My parents. They’re honest people that worked really hard to raise their six children in sometimes very difficult situations.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The dream of a fighter's life.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I have 3 diplomas specializing in sales. I also studied sociology at the university.
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked in club security but I also manage a restaurant.
