Marcin Tybura


Earns come-from-behind victory
June 6, 2021
Tybura defeated Walt Harris via TKO (punches) at 4:06 of Round at UFC Vegas 28 on Saturday.
Tybura was caught early by a spinning backfist from Harris, who proceeded to empty his gas tank in search of the finish. Miraculously, Tybura survived the onslaught and eventually got his wits about him. He caught a Harris kick and used that to get his opponent to the mat, where several transitions led to Harris giving up his back. In full back mount, Tybura began raining down right hands that forced referee Mark Smith to step in and stop the fight. The outstanding come-from-behind effort was enough to earn Tybura his fifth consecutive victory, in addition to a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus.

Receives new opponent
March 8, 2021
Tybura (21-6-0) will now face Walt Harris (13-9-0) as his new opponent at UFC Fight Night on June 5 after Blagoy Ivanov had to withdraw from the initial fight at UFC 260 on March 27 due to an undisclosed injury, Farah Hannoun and Nolan King of MMA Junkie reports.
Tybura may be looking at his toughest test yet as Harris is a higher-ranked fighter who is a serious threat to end the 35-year-old's winning streak in a few short months. Tybura is two inches shorter than Harris but has an inch advantage in reach as he'll look to continue to move up the UFC ranks with a statement win after Harris most recently lost via TKO (strikes) to Alexander Volkov back in October.
Needs new opponent at UFC 260
February 24, 2021
Tybura will no longer face Blagoy Ivanov at UFC 260 on March 27, Cole Shelton of reports.
Tybura had been looking to extend his UFC winning streak to five and build momentum following a TKO victory over Greg Hardy in December. He ultimately won't get to do so against the 34-year-old veteran of the UFC and WSOF, but with the event a month out and several heavyweights cashing in big performances last weekend, it wouldn't be surprising for the promotion to seek a new opponent.
Set to face Blagoy Ivanov
February 16, 2021
Tybura will square off against Blagoy Ivanov in a heavyweight fight at UFC 260 on March 27, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Tybura has been in quite a good run of form lately, winning four straight fights. He most recently beat Greg Hardy by second-round TKO in December. Ivanov hasn't had the same recent results, dropping a pair of split decisions against Derrick Lewis and Augusto Sakai.
Takes out Greg Hardy
December 19, 2020
Tybura defeated Greg Hardy via TKO (strikes) at 4:31 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Employing a bend but don't break mentality, Tybura managed to survive Hardy's early onslaught before putting him away in the later stages of Round 2. Tybura's chin has been questionable in the past, but it held up in this one. Hardy's gas tank has never been strong and unsurprisingly, the momentum shifted to Tybura as the fight progressed. Tybura turned 35 years of age this past November and doesn't possess the typical knockout power associated with most heavyweights, but he has won four fights in a row in 2020. This recent string of success comes on the heels of a five-fight streak in which he went 1-4 from November 2017 to September 2019. The most recent effort will help out his bank account as well, as Tybura earned one of four $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses awarded Saturday night.
