Marcin Tybura


Lasts just a minute in Vancouver
September 14, 2019
Tybura lost to Augusto Sakai via KO (punches) at 0:59 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN+ 16 on Saturday in Vancouver.
There was a lot of talk surrounding Tybura's weight for this fight, as he came in 10 pounds heavier than his typical mark. It's hard to tell if that played any part in the result, as this looked like Tybura simply being outclassed by a superior fighter. He started with a couple successful kicks, but it wasn't long before a right hand landed and dazed Tybura. Sakai unloaded from there and sent Tybura to the canvas. Tybura has now dropped four of his last five fights.
