Fighting out of Olsztyn, Poland, Pawel “The Polish Prospect” Kielek, 23, is competing in the BRAVE Combat Federation cage for the fourth time. This time, he is entering the cage with a deeper inspiration.
The last time Kielek competed was on December 8, 2018. He was knocked out by David Bear, 28, of France at “BRAVE CF 19” at the Sun City Resort in Sun City, Moses Kotane, North West, South Africa.
While Kielek lost, he won big in life. The Polish MMA fighter got married and now has a baby on the way, which made him even more motivated to go out and put on an impressive performance at “BRAVE CF 28” in Bucharest, Romania on November 4, 2019.
“Fatherhood gave me a lot of power during my preparation and a lot of motivation, too,” Kielek shared. “Everything is different now. The energy I’ve had is different than before. I can’t wait to step into the BRAVE CF cage and show how I feel (and) what kind of person I am now.”
“BRAVE CF 28” marks BRAVE Combat Federation’s third event in Europe and debut not only in Romania but also in the entire Eastern Europe. In the co-main event of the evening, Kielek will compete at a catch weight of 77kg against Benoit “God of War” St. Denis, 23, of Paris, France.
While “BRAVE CF 28” marks Kielek’s fourth Brave CF bout, it will be the promotional debut of St. Denis. The two kept things friendly during their weigh-ins and face-off on November 3, 2019.
St. Denis weighed exactly 77kg. Kielek weighed 77.3kg.
“I’m ready to go,” the Olsztyn native declared. “Everything has changed in my life but I’m super motivated. I’m a different person. I know this.”
Training out of Arrachion Olsztyn in Olsztyn, Kielek holds a professional MMA record of 9 wins, 5 losses and 1 draw. On the other hand, St. Denis has 3 wins and 0 loss.
