He won me over during season 8 of The Ultimate Fighter with his pranks, antics and general attitude. And while his given name looks like a bunch of consonants, “The Polish Experiment” is one badass nickname.

Krzysztof Soszynski (18-8-1) is the kind of fighter we like to see. He’s clearly here to fight. After winning submission of the night against Shane Primm at the TUF Ultimate Finale 8, he went back in training and appeared at UFC 97 four months later to fight Brian Stann and then stepped in as a replacement at UFC 98 one month later to fight Andre Gusmao. It hasn’t even been a year, and this guy is going to enter the octagon for the fourth time at UFC 102 against Brandon Vera.

But these are the kind of fighters fans love. These are the fighter fans remember. The ones eager to just get in the ring and fight. “Oh, didn’t this guy fight at the last UFC?” Yeah. And he won that fight too.

Keep your eye on Krzystof, because he’s bound to make a move into the big scene soon.
