After taking only 32 seconds to secure the vacant Cage Warriors middleweight gold at Cage Warriors 85; undefeated Polish prospect Oskar Piechota has decided to vacate his CW title after putting pen to paper on a UFC contract.
Piechota who holds a record of 9-0-1 confirmed the move via his twitter account and he will now look to make his mark in the UFC’s 185lb division. The 27-year old has a 100% finish rate with all nine of his wins coming by way of stoppage including five submissions and four TKO victories.
I did vacate @CageWarriors middleweight belt and signed with UFC. I want to thank CW team for the opportunity to fight for the Europe's best

In his last outing, the 27-year old who trains out of the Piranha Grappling Team in Gdansk, Poland shocked fans in attendance at the o2 Academy in Bournemouth when he blitzed the highly touted Brit Jason Radcliffe and as a result earned himself a call-up to WME-IMG owned promotion.
The Pole’s first opponent under the UFC banner is still unknown however it is believed that he is set to make debut in front of home in Gdansk this October.
