Thoughts on opponent, Scott Askham? Scott Askham is a very good fighter. He has very good physical conditioning and he lost only against Magnus Cedenblad, who I also lost to, so I think it will be a fantastic fight. I have not fought for one year and I am very well prepared and hungry for this fight.
TRAINING: I get up in the morning around 8 a.m. and eat a good breakfast at 10 a.m. In the morning I train my physical condition, come home, eat, take a short nap and at 9 p.m. I do my sparring in Muay Thai. At 10 p.m. I am back home and I go to sleep.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA five years ago and it became my passion. I was watching one on the UFC events when Tito Ortiz was fighting Ken Shamrock. At that moment I just knew what I wanted to do in my life.
What ranks and titles have you held? I’m a two-time amateur champion of Poland, in 2011 I got an award for Discovery of the Year by Polish MMA portal.
Do you have any heroes? My greatest hero in this sport is Tito Ortiz because he is the reason I got into MMA. I also like Robbie Lawler and one day I would like to train with him.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? UFC was a dream; I didn’t believe it could come true, just like the NBA is for a basketball player. But this dream came true, for which I am very grateful and I will prove this was a good choice.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No
