Michael Oleksiejczuk is a Ukrainian-born professional mixed martial artist currently competing in the Light Heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Born on August 8, 1992 in Kharkiv, Ukraine, he began training in martial arts from an early age. He was trained by his father and grandfather from the ages of seven to sixteen before moving to Poland to pursue a career as an MMA fighter. In Poland he joined RFS Fight Club where his career took off quickly and he rose through the ranks becoming one of the top fighters in Europe.

Oleksiejczuk currently holds a professional record of 15 wins and 2 losses with eleven wins coming by way of knockout or submission. His most notable win so far came against Khalil Rountree Jr at UFC 231 which earned him “Performance of The Night” honors for his dominant performance over three rounds. He followed up this victory with another stoppage win when he faced Sam Alvey at UFC Minneapolis last year.

Since signing with UFC in 2018, Oleksiejczuk has been very active inside the Octagon going 4-1 during that span which includes two finishes against Ion Cutelaba and Ovince St Preux respectively both via TKO or doctor’s stoppages due to cuts caused by punches sustained during those fights. With these impressive victories Oleksiejczuk definitely established himself as one of light heavyweight division’s most promising contenders earning him recognition within MMA community worldwide along with respect from fellow fighters as well who admire him for his work ethic and determination to be successful inside octagon every time out.

Outside Octagon Oleksiejczuk spends much time training hard either under supervision from coaches at Reebok Combat Academy located near Warsaw or spending time CrossFit sessions being held regularly at RFS Fight Club’s facility located nearby . When not attending such workouts Michael enjoys hiking trips around Polish countryside, playing computer games and watching movies all while listening some good music simultaneously..

Outlook towards future looks very bright for 23 year old Ukrainian born fighter due many great accomplishments already achieved so far including four fight winning streak as well several bonuses won throughout it plus multiple sponsorships acquired along way also mainly due positive attitude displayed every single day whether facing media outlets after weigh ins or giving interviews backstage during events.. Such personality traits should prove crucial once young contender steps into octagon again whenever next bout takes place later this year since they provide additional boost needed going into fight night itself making sure athlete displays best possible version himself leading toward eventual success desired..
