Olimpic Medalist, MMA fighter

My sport career is connected with wrestling, up to 84 kg category, classic style. I am a bronze Olimpic medalist (London, 2012), vice- World Champion and European Vice-Champion. I have represented WKS Slask Wroclaw. In 2013 I was honored by Silver Cross of Merit and Golden Medal for Contributions to National Defense.

I have retired from wrestling some time ago to cooperate with the biggest MMA Federation in Europe- KSW. It’s a completely new sport challenge for me and I have really high aspirations in this discipline.
Olimpic sport have taught me hard work, humbleness and persistence. I do truly hope this will pay off on my MMA career path and in the process of achieving my goals.
