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.

Jotko will no longer face Makhmud Muradov on Oct. 31 in Las Vegas as he suffered a broken toe, MMAFighting.com reports.

Set for October fight

August 1, 2020
Jotko is scheduled to face Makhmud Muradov in a middleweight fight at UFC's Oct. 31 event, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Jotko's most recent bout was back in May, when he defeated Eryk Anders via unanimous decision at the UFC on ESPN 8 event. The 30-year-old will look to extend his three-fight win streak in just a few short months against Muradov, who is off to a 2-0 start in his young UFC career.
Takes decision from Eryk Anders
MiddleweightUFC
May 16, 2020
Jotko defeated Eryk Anders via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Jotko ran off a five-fight winning streak early in his UFC career. He followed that up with three straight losses and has rebounded from there with three straight victories. This was a typical Jotko performance in the sense that it won't have fans clamoring to see him fight again any time soon. Jotko has extremely limited power, and nearly all of his victories see the final bell. In fact, eight of his nine UFC victories have come via decision. He did enough to keep the inexperienced and inconsistent Anders from finding his groove, but there is still little reason to believe Jotko is a legitimate contender at 185 pounds. He has always come up short when tasked with facing better competition.
