UFC Fight Night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas took place on Saturday. We saw a lot of good fights, but one fight caused a lot of attention, and that is the women's division fight between Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Diana Belbita.
We watched a really great match, and at the end Kowalkiewicz celebrated, who did not hide her delight after the victory. This was her fourth win in a row and it looks like she's going to be the next big thing in the UFC. After the match, Karolina Kowalkiewicz thanked her team and stated that she had trained especially for this standup fight match.
At the end, she praised her opponent whom she defeated and said that she has great respect for Diana Belbit. “She was very, very good – prepared for this fight. She’s a very tough girl. My game plan was to take her down, but I couldn’t take her down.
Her defensive wrestling is very good and my offensive wrestling is not so good – but my standup is very good. So I had Plan B to fight with her in the standup”. “My motto is ‘Never give up.’ If something’s going wrong in your life, you don’t give up because this is your life.
MMA is a very important part of my life. I had five losses. I had a very serious injury. But no matter, you know? I love this sport. I want to fight more. So I changed my whole life. I moved to Florida. I started training with coach (Marcos DaMatta) ‘Parrumpa,’ with coach Anderson (Franca).
They believed in me from the beginning because I came to them and I had five losses. They said, ‘OK, we can train with you. Everything will be fine.’ And now everything is fine”. as quoted by MMAJunkie At the end, this Polish woman fighter thanked everyone who believed in her, especially in her country, Poland. She said it's time to be UFC in Poland and she couldn't wait to fight in front of her home crowd.
