One to Watch at UFC Fight Island 6: Mateusz Gamrot

Mateusz “Gamer” Gamrot (17-0) is undoubtedly one of the greatest fighters outside of the UFC roster. The KSW double champ at 145 and 155 lbs. makes a long-awaited debut at UFC Fight Island 6.

KSW is arguably Europe’s most talent-rich MMA organization and Gamrot has run wild through the Lightweight and Featherweight divisions. Mateusz began competing in the Polish-based promotion in 2013 after three victories to start his professional record. He earned his first title at Lightweight in 2016 and has defended the strap five times since. In 2018, “Gamer” wanted more gold and dropped down ten pounds to Featherweight, capturing his second title in two years with a unanimous decision.

Presently, Mateusz Gamrot splits time between two camps. He still stays true to his roots in Poznan at Czerwony Smok, Polish for “Red Dragon”. Furthermore, Gamrot’s expanded his arsenal, sparring with UFC lightweight contenders at American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida.

His fight strategy is reminiscent of UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, opting for control over damage. His expert ground game allows him to flat-out control every encounter on the mat. He hardly ever throws strikes in combination. However, when he does he surprises opponents with the legendary Polish power, shout out to new Polish Heavyweight Champ Jan Blachowicz crowned one month ago.

Mateusz Gamrot follows Jan’s footsteps onto Fight Island and starts his Lightweight title journey Saturday, 10/17. He faces fellow debutant Guram Kutateladze (11-2) at 4 PM ET as the main event on the prelims at UFC Fight Island 6.
