Adam Kowalski: In Search of FEN Gold

Adam Kowalski: In Search of FEN Gold

With many future stars in the featherweight and lightweight division, Poland is ready to unleash upon the MMA world a dangerous light-heavyweight in Adam Kowalski. Ranked #18 in Tapology’s listing of Eastern European light heavyweights which number 242, Kowalski is ready for his time to shine as champion after narrowly letting the FEN title slip away in his last outing.

Discovering MMA

MMA is a family affair for the Kowalski’s as his introduction to combat sports came by his older brother. After beginning with a few individual forms of combat sports, Kowalski found his future home gym and made the transition to mixed martial arts. “I started to train martial arts thanks to my older brother who, as a child, took me to Shotokan Karate. Then I trained Krav Maga, boxing, and Muay Thai. Finally, in 2008, I got to Arrachion Olsztyn and there my career began as an amateur and lasts to this day,” Kowalski told MyMMANews.

Developing the Skills with the Very Best in the World

Though many will say MMA is a “single-player sport,” training with world-class coaches and teammates will make all the difference in the world. It does not hurt to have future MMA hall of famers in the legendary Mamed Khalidov and Aslambek Saidov to work with on a day-to-day basis. “I train with the Arrachion Olsztyn club. My coaches are Szymon Bonkowski and Paweł Derlacz. In the club we have many players such as Mamed Khalidov, Aslambeck Saidov, Karol Celiński, Przemysław Mysiala, Adrian Zieliński, Paweł Kiełek, and Krystian Bielski. I’m not able to name everyone but thanks to them, I am in this place now,” said Kowalski.

Rebounding From Loss and Marching Forward

At FEN 31, the vacant light heavyweight title was just in the grasp of Kowalski. Unfortunately, it was not his time for the crown, and he suffered the defeat. Kowalski has taken lessons from that bout and knows what he needs to do to get back into that title hunt. “In my last fight, I lost to Marcin Wojcik. This defeat made me think what I did wrong and I will try to fix these mistakes in the next fights,” stated Kowalski.

The journey to correcting those wrongs started at FEN 35 on June 26, 2021. He squared off with Marcin Filipczak, who was 5-1 entering the contest winning his last five straight bouts. Above all, winning this matchup helped give Kowalski a huge leg up in the hunt for the light heavyweight title. ” I want to give fans emotions in the next fight and get back on track,” stated Kowalski prior to the bout.

Taking the unanimous decision at FEN 35, Kowalski did what was needed in the night’s co-main event. With the champion not competing since his first encounter with Kowalski in November, it is likely we see Kowalski in with the champion before the end of the year. Look for a different warrior to enter the cage with revenge and gold on his mind.
