Mateusz Gamrot extends his win streak to 2-0 in the UFC

Gamrot made his UFC debut in October last year and succumbed to a split-decision loss against Guram Kutateladze. He then bounced back with a second-round stoppage win over Scott Holtzman earlier this year. Tonight at the UFC APEX, he built on that to make it 2-1 in the UFC against a very tough opponent. 

Gamrot shot for the takedown as soon as the fight started. He pushed Stephens against the cage and lifted him up before slamming him to the ground. As soon as Stephens hit the ground, ‘Gamer’ wasted no time in isolating his hands using his knees. He then secured a Kimura and finished the fight in just over a minute of the very first round. 

This was without a doubt the toughest fight of Gamrot’s UFC career. The Polish fighter faced a far more experienced fighter and proved that he is a legitimate talent at 155-pounds. His win made Stephens look like an amateur.

‘Gamer’ is currently unranked at lightweight. If he can continue putting on impressive performances such as the one today it will not be long before he finds himself in the top 15, fighting the very best in the UFC at lightweight.
