Krzysztof Jotko

Poland

Strong run continues
MiddleweightUFC
April 30, 2022
Jotko defeated Gerald Meerschaert via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 35 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was a typical Jotko fight in the sense that he was once again unable to stop his opposition, but still managed to walk away with the win. Entering as a moderately surprising -170 favorite against a talented veteran opponent in Meerschaert, Jotko controlled the pace on the feet in addition to mixing in four successful takedowns, good for 5:25 worth of control time. Jotko has very little power and is limited from an athletic standpoint, but few fighters on the roster today get the more out of their abilities. Jotko has won five of six dating back to April 2019, with all five of those coming via decision. His only setback during that span came against rising middleweight contender Sean Strickland.

Escapes Vegas with split victory
MiddleweightUFC
October 2, 2021
Jotko defeated Misha Cirkunov via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Jotko fights are rarely entertaining, and this one was no exception. Jotko was definitely the better fighter in Round 2, but the first and third frames were too close to call. It's hard to get too worked up about the decision considering neither man accomplished a ton. All told, Jotko landed 56 total strikes compared to Cirkunov's 55. Cirkunov also connected on five takedowns for 4:06 worth of control time, which should tell you how little he did with his positional edge considering Jotko won the bout. Jotko has won four of five dating back to April 2019, although each of those wins have come via decision, as have 16 of Jotko's 23 professional victories. That fact, combined with the fact he's already 32 years of age, limits Jotko's long-term ceiling -- both overall and from a fantasy perspective -- quite a bit.
Welcoming Cirkunov to middleweight
MiddleweightUFC
August 17, 2021
Jotko will take on Misha Cirkunov in a middleweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Oct. 2.
ANALYSIS
Jotko recently had a three-fight winning streak snapped at the hands of Sean Strickland -- a red-hot fighter that could be competing for a title sooner rather than later. The Polish fighter will now look to start a new one against Cirkunov, who will be making a big drop from light heavyweight. Despite that cut, Cirkunov will have just a two-inch height advantage, while both men own a 77-inch reach. Jotko will have to put his 87 percent takedown defense to use here, as Cirkunov averages more than four takedowns per 15 minutes of fight time.
Falls to Sean Strickland
MiddleweightUFC
May 1, 2021
Jotko lost to Sean Strickland via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
That will do it for Jotko's three-fight winning streak. Hopelessly outclassed by Strickland in terms of pure power, Jotko attempted to rely on both speed and footwork to gain an advantage. It didn't work. He found himself on the receiving end of countless swift jabs from Strickland and was unable to string together combinations of his own. As difficult as it is to believe, Jotko has been with the UFC since December 2013. He's been up and down with the company, although his 9-5 career mark is perfectly reasonable for a depth fighter. Expect more inconsistency from the 31-year-old Poland native moving forward.
