Easily gets past Jim Miller
LightweightUFC
April 10, 2021
Solecki defeated Jim Miller via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC on ABC 2 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
This looked like a potential "trap" fight for Solecki against a veteran opponent with a skill set similar to his own, but he passed the test with flying colors. Solecki got off to a bit of a slow start, but Miller's gas tank evaporated after the first frame and Solecki was in full control from there. Solecki was credited with 9:23 worth of control time in a fight that wasn't particularly pleasing to watch. Still, it was an easy victory for the 27-year-old to keep his record with the company perfect at 3-0. The challenge for Solecki at this point will be for him to offer a bit more on the feet than we have seen thus far. He has just one knockout win in his pro career.
Draws Jim Miller in April
LightweightUFC
March 2, 2021
Solecki will take on Jim Miller in a lightweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for April 10, Farah Hannoun of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Solecki is a perfect 3-0 to begin his UFC run, picking up a pair of first-round submissions along the way. Miller has only been submitted three times in 48 professional fights, and that last time that occurred was against now-title contender Charles Oliveira in 2018. Solecki matches up well physically with Miller, but the big factor here is that he's almost a full decade younger, with Miller currently in the twilight of his MMA career.
Submission victory in Vegas
LightweightUFC
August 22, 2020
Solecki defeated Austin Hubbard via submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 3:51 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Easy work. Despite going up against an opponent that appeared to be twice his size, Solecki dominated this fight no matter where it took place. He started off by beating Hubbard up on the feet, and when he got tired of that, he clamped on the rear-naked choke that ended the fight. It was a dominant showing from Solecki in a fight in which he entered as a slight (+105) underdog. A product of Dana White's Contender Series, the 26-year-old New Jersey native has now won each of his first two UFC bouts.
