For those who don’t know along with being a fitness trainer to the Barcelona striker, Anna Lewandowska also has a black belt in karate. On top of that, she also has a bronze medal from the 2009 Karate World Championships under her belt. It’s no surprise that Anna is eager to take on new challenges and explore her limits. According to reports, the karateka is wanting to make her MMA debut but she will need to discuss it with his husband first.

However, it seems that her husband has previously not been entirely on board with this idea. Just recently Anna received an offer from Slawomir Peszko, the owner of KSW, the leading mixed martial arts company in Poland. She discussed this with Robert Lewandowski. And he was less than thrilled about the prospect.

Of course, the decision to enter the octagon is not one to be taken lightly, especially for someone who has never fought before. That being said, Anna does have some advantages in her corner. Only time will tell what the couple decides on. However, there’s one decision Lewandowski is keen on and that is to not leave Barcelona yet.
