Huge KO win at UFC 267

October 30, 2021
Oleksiejczuk defeated Shamil Gamzatov via TKO (punches) at 3:31 of Round 1 at UFC 267 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
In what was by far the closest fight on the entire card from a betting standpoint, Oleksiejczuk left no doubt who the better man was. Gamzatov made a concerted effort to damage the body, but Oleksiejczuk managed to sneak a massive uppercut right up the middle which changed the entire fight right then and there. Oleksiejczuk has been up and down over the course of his UFC career, but the power is clearly legitimate. He now has 11 knockout victories in his career and is sporting a 4-2 (1NC) record with the company. "Lord" is also just 26 years of age.

Oleksiejczuk will take on Shamil Gamzatov in a light heavyweight bout at the UFC event on Oct. 30, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Oleksiejczuk is coming off a split decision win over Modestas Bukauskas in March. He was able to bounce back from a loss against Jimmy Crute back in February of 2020. Gamzatov has struggled with visa issues in his latest bookings. His last time in the Octagon was November of 2019 when he beat Kildson Abreu.

Oleksiejczuk defeated Modestas Bukauskas via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 260 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
After struggling with the grappling of Jimmy Crute in his most recent bout, Oleksiejczuk fared much better in a fight which was contested almost entirely on the feet. Of course, whether or not he deserved to actually win is open to interpretation. Oleksiejczuk unquestionably got stronger as the fight progressed. He was also the one pushing the pace at every available opportunity. There was clearly little separating these two men, so Oleksiejzcuk was fortunate to emerge victorious. The 26-year-old snaps a brief two-fight losing streak with the win.

Oleksiejczuk will square off versus Modestas Bukauskas on the UFC's March 27 card, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Oleksiejczuk is looking to get back on track after a pair of submission losses to Ovince Saint Preux and Jimmy Crute in his last two bouts. While he's averaging just over a takedown per 15 minutes, Oleksiejczuk hasn't landed one in any fight beyond the first of his UFC career. That could prove difficult once again versus Modestas Bukaskas, who owns a perfect takedown defense percentage and sports advantages of three inches in height and four in the reach department.
Gets badly outgrappled in loss

Oleksiejczuk lost to Jimmy Crute via submission (kimura) at 3:29 of Round 1 UFC Fight Night 168 in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Oleksiejczuk combines power and speed on the feet, with nasty bodywork thrown in for good measure. Unfortunately for him, he didn't get a chance to showcase those skills, as Crute dragged him to the ground repeatedly until he was able to secure the finish. The Polish fighter was coming off two dominant wins before being submitted by OSP in September, and will now need to sure up his submission defense in order to put his standup skills to use. Oleksiejczuk falls to 14-4 in professional MMA as the result of the loss.
