Krystian Kaszubowski: “I Believe You Can Get Something Good From Every Fight”

With KSW 66 just around the corner for the organization’s first showing of 2022, many of the company’s brightest stars will be on display. Set to make his seventh appearance in one of Europe’s biggest promotions, Krystian Kaszubowski, will look to rebound from his last outing and put himself squarely back into the title picture. One of Poland’s most dangerous strikeout artists, Kaszubowski has a chance to kick off 2022 in style and show the world what European MMA fans already know.

The Rise Of A Future Polish Star

Currently 27-years old, Kaszubowski began training at a young age. “I started training combat sports at the age of 16. At the beginning it was K1. After a short period of time, I switched to MMA,” Kaszubowski told MyMMANews. Just three years later at the age of 19, Kaszubowski made his professional debut at “No Contest” which took place in November 2013. After four unanimous decision to start his professional career, Kaszubowski took a two-year absence from the sport before returning.

Much of the growth Kaszubowski has made in his career comes from training at one of Eastern Europe’s top gyms, Mighty-Bulls Gdynia. “Currently, I train at the Mighty-Bulls Gdynia club under the supervision of Grzegorz Jakubiwski. This is a person who is a legend of MMA in Poland – you can say that he started it. My club mates are people who fight for leading organizations. We try to drive each other,” stated Kaszubowski. Located in Gdynia, Poland (along the Baltic Sea) the gym’s founder, Jakubiwski, made his professional debut in 2002 and had a lengthy career of his own before running one of Poland’s top gyms.

Return To Action And Joining KSW

After his two-year layoff, Kaszubowski returned to action earning the first-round submission by kneebar at Granda PRO 5 in November 2017. After that impressive win, it was time to join one of Europe’s top promotions, KSW. The debut came at one of the year’s biggest cards, KSW 42 in March 2018, where Kaszubowski scored the huge first round knockout just over one minute into the contest with elbows. Continuing with the impressive striking, Kaszubowski returned to the KSW cage for KSW 46 in December 2018. Taking a step up in competition to face Michal Michalski, Kaszubowski sealed the victory with yet another first round finish.

“I knew that competing in KSW was only a matter of time, but I didn’t think it would happen so quickly. Of course, I was very happy to be offered a contract with this organization, but I also knew that it comes with a responsibility,” said Kaszubowski. “The first two fights ended quite quickly, then the fight for the belt, which was the first loss in my career so far, and the next two matches where I tried to use different skills. Now, there is another challenge ahead of me that I am looking forward to.”

After his two impressive first-round finishes in KSW, Kaszubowski earned a title shot against one of the best welterweights in the world, regardless of organization, in Roberto Soldic. Taking the first loss of his career, Kaszubowski went back to the drawing board in order to improve his game to make another run at the title in the future.

The Bright Future For A Future Champion

After a very close split decision loss in March 2021, Kaszubowski has returned for 2022 with a game plan in place to help him reach the top of the KSW mountain. Kaszubowski has taken the recent setbacks as a way to grow. “I don’t take it as a failure. I believe that you can get something good from every fight,” Kaszubowski said.

With January 15, 2022, just around the corner, what can we expect to see from the hard-hitting Polish young star? “I hope that I will give the fans lots of good emotions and good fights above all. I would like to fight for sure more times than I did last year,” stated Kaszubowski.
