Joe Solecki is a talented mixed martial artist and professional Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) athlete. He was born in New Jersey and began his combat sports career training in Jiu-Jitsu and boxing at an early age. Joe has competed in numerous amateur MMA fights, always pushing himself to work harder and become better. In 2020 he made his UFC debut with a victory over Austin Hubbard on the Dana White Contender Series card.

Solecki’s fighting style is mainly grounded in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling, along with some striking skills that he picked up from boxing classes as a child. He also frequently implements ground striking techniques from Muay Thai into his preparation for upcoming bouts. His ground game is highly respected; one of his favorite moves to use is the guillotine choke submission which has won him many fights throughout his career so far.

Joe’s passion for combat sports led him to train alongside world-class fighters such as former UFC Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, former Bellator Middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi, UFC Light Heavyweight title contender Jan Blachowicz and current UFC Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at The Academy MMA gym located in Texas, USA. This experience allowed him to learn directly from the best which ultimately prepared him well for professional competition at the highest level of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

Due to Joe’s continued success within the sport he earned another fight inside of the Octagon when he faced off against Matt Wiman back in July 2021 during Fight Island 8 event held by the UFC promotion company – Abu Dhabi UAE . Despite being taken down multiple times due to Wiman’s superior wrestling ability, Solecki proved that he could keep up with experienced veterans by using solid defensive jiu-jitsu techniques throughout all five rounds earning himself an impressive split decision victory over former TUF winner Matt Wiman!

Joe continues to compete under the bright lights of Las Vegas Nevada where most recently fought Christos Giagos at fight night 178 where after three exciting rounds Agustin Rivera emerged victorious via unanimous decision however this did not stop Solecki who showed true resilience & determination proving that even if you don’t win you can still come away learning valuable lessons whilst also gaining more fans along your journey!

Overall Joe Solecki has had great success since making it big on Dana White’s Contender Series show especially considering how young & inexperienced compared other fighters competing today – each bout puts more pressure on himself but this only inspires “The Bearcat” even more as makes sure no matter what outcome will be doing everything possible improve himself further & further reach top echelon amongst all athletes competing within world MMA!
