Grinds out decision
MiddleweightUFC
April 20, 2019
Jotko defeated Alen Amedovski via unanimous decision (30-25, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Saint Petersburg.
ANALYSIS
This was a one sided fight for Jotko. He was able to score takedowns basically at will and go to work in the top position. Amedovski was not able to get anything going in this fight, and he spent most of the fight stuck on the bottom eating shots. Jotko needed this victory to stop a three-fight winning steak and he did it in dominant fashion.

To welcome Adam Yandiev to UFC in Moscow
MiddleweightUFC
August 1, 2018
Jotko will take on newcomer Adam Yandiev in a middleweight matchup at UFC Moscow on Sept. 15, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Jotko started his UFC career with an impressive 6-1 record, but as soon as he received a step up in competition, it started going downhill. He's now riding a three-fight losing streak, and could be at risk of getting released if he does not turn it around soon. The UFC will force the 28-year-old to take a step back in this matchup, as he'll take on an older fighter in Yankiev that is making his UFC debut after multiple fights under the M-1 Global banner. Yankiev is 9-0 as a professional with six submission wins, but Jotko has only been submitted once in 24 fights, and is effective at avoiding the mat, sporting a highly-commendable 87 percent takedown defense. Jotko should enter as the betting favorite, but whether or not he can re-channel some of his 2016 magic remains to be seen.
Struggles continue with loss to Brad Tavares Saturday
MiddleweightUFC
April 14, 2018
Jotko lost to Brad Tavares via TKO (punches) at 2:16 of Round 3 at UFC on FOX 29 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
One of the most underrated middleweights in the world not all that long ago, Jotko's career has completely fallen apart. He has now lost three fights in a row and it's not out of the question that the UFC hands him his walking papers. Generally known as a quality striker with limited power, Jotko appears hesitant and confused inside the octagon. He continues to let the opposition get off first and Jotko has shown no ability to rebound when the circumstances require him to do so. It's been a swift, vicious fall from grace for the 28-year-old native of Poland.
Stunned by Uriah Hall Saturday night
MiddleweightUFC
September 16, 2017
Jotko lost to Uriah Hall via KO (punches) at 2:25 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Pittsburgh.
ANALYSIS
It's rare that a fighter will be as frustrated regarding the result of a fight as Jotko will be here. He seemingly had countless chances to earn a stoppage win in Round 1 and was unable to. He paid for his failures in Round 2. The one thing you cannot do against Hall is allow him to get in a rhythm and that's exactly what happened. It's a crushing defeat for Jotko, who has now lost tough back-to-back fights. He needs to rebound his next time out in a major way.
Drops split decision to David Branch at UFC 211
MiddleweightUFC
May 13, 2017
Jotko lost to David Branch via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC 211 on Saturday in Dallas.
ANALYSIS
It was a fight without much action. Jotko landed a couple power shots here and there, but they were few and far between. And while he allowed three takedowns, Jotko did a good job of quickly working his way back to his feet. Ultimately however, he just didn't produce enough offense to earn the victory. It was Jotko's first loss in nearly three years. He falls to 6-2 in the UFC.
To welcome David Branch back to UFC
MiddleweightUFC
March 21, 2017
Jotko will face David Branch in a middleweight matchup at UFC 211 in Dallas on May 13, ESPN's Brett Okamoto reports.
ANALYSIS
Jotko is 6-1 with the UFC, winning his last five fights overall. The Poland native has a tough test ahead, however, as Branch is an experienced fighter riding a 10-fight winning streak. Jotko's only professional loss has been via submission, so he'll need to be careful against the Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu product. Jotko has youth in his favor and also has a quality camp in American Top Team, but underestimating the 35-year-old Branch would be a mistake.
