Jan Blachowicz stunned the world with his title win at UFC 253. While he is currently one of the top fighters today, this was not the case earlier. Back in 2017, he went through a rough career patch, and his UFC career almost came to an end because of several defeats.

His girlfriend and now fiance, Dorota Jurkowska, was beside him through thick and thin. She is not only his partner, but also his manager. During Blachowicz’s rocky UFC career, Jurkowska was worried that he might get fired. Hence, he did everything she could to save his job.

She said, “I pushed them so hard to give Jan one more chance. I told them that Jan is a huge star in Poland, and I knew they wanted to hold an event in Poland. I told them, ‘He needs to be on this card!’ That was my last argument for him not to be fired.”

Jurkowska’s efforts paid off. He fought against Devin Clark and won through a rear-naked choke. This fight revived his failing UFC career. Ever since then, he has not looked back. After 2017, he has lost just one fight.

In an interview, Blachowicz gave credit to Jurkowska’s efforts and said, “She’s a big part of the success.”
