Exclusive Interview: Krzysztof Soszynski Discusses UFC 122 Fight Against Goran Reljic and His Pro Wrestling Past

K-Sos Talks UFC 122 – Watch more Funny Videos

Coming off his Fight of the Night-winning TKO loss to Stephan Bonnar at UFC 116Krzysztof Soszynski — better known around here as "K-Sos" — is hungry to get back to the win column. He returns at UFC 122 (November 13; Oberhausen, Germany) against Goran Reljic, who has dropped his last two bouts against CB Dollaway and Kendall Grove, and needs a victory to save his job. According to K-Sos, that’ll just make for a more exciting fight. As he tells our interviewer Ruben Vera:

"I think it’s another one of those fun fights. He’s gonna leave everything on the line. He’s 0-2 in his last two fights, he’s gonna be desperate; he doesn’t want to go 0-3. So he’s gonna put everything out there, he’s gonna put everything on the line to get this win, and I’m going to have to be ready for it. I feel like with the way I fought against Stephan Bonnar — a lot of punches, a lot kicks, a lot of pressure — I think it’s gonna be one of those barnburners, and one of those fights where the fans are gonna get a really good look at what we can do…
It’s gonna be a brawl…it’s gonna be a battle of wills, a battle of conditioning, and whoever’s fresher in the third round is gonna win that fight. I’m expecting a three-round war, and I’m pretty sure he’s expecting the same from me. We’re just gonna put on a great show for the fans and the UFC."

Later in the interview, K-Sos talks about why he left Team Quest for Reign Training Center, how studying under Bad News Brown inspired him to leave pro wrestling for MMA, what he thinks about the current season of TUF, and what his favorite Van Damme movie is. Shockingly, it’s not Bloodsport.

@ videodrome - I can understand why you would be flabbergasted at my choice if you thought I meant the Rodman movie. But that was "Double Team", not "Double Impact." "Double Impact" is double the van Damme, and two incredible double-D's on that boat scene that put it over the top. "Bloodsport" is a close second.

Ok, I just actually watched the video above. Can somebody tell me what the fuck the translation is of the noise that comes out of Ruben's mouth at the 00:55 mark? It sounded like a dying snarf.

edit: Ok, he did it again at the 1:27 mark, and after listening to the entire interview, I realize this kid just has a lot of nervous energy, which seems to level out the longer the interview goes on. Makes the first half hysterical tho between the weird noises and changes of volume mid speak.

that's awesome. I always thought Bad News would've been a great fighter. I heard he made Andre the Giant look like a bitch one time in Japan.

Best JCVD movie was the one where he got knocked out by Chuck Zito.

BLOODSPORT!! Are you guys kidding me?

What? I hop you're joking because it does not top Universal Soldier. Or are you a Rodman fan?....Which I'll make an exception for. (He is in Double Impact, right?)

Nice work Ruben on getting these interviews. K-Sos seems like a pretty cool guy.

Fun semi-related fact: JCVD and the guy who plays Atilla from 'Lionheart' (the big dude with the giant sideburns) grew up together studying karate and boxing in Brussels, along with Atilla's brother, who played Tong Po in 'Kickboxer.'

And the correct answer to the best Van Damme movie - 'Double Impact.'

Btw, Ruben. You're interviews are getting better. Solid work, mate. If and when the time comes for an interview with Chael Sonnen, I'd really be interested in a CP exclusive for that. Work that magic, Saku.

Where the hell is Rex to wiegh in on this?? Late night of stalking defenseless girls? Ha. J/K Smeagle. I just love bustin your balls.

Bonner fight was EPIC. I will watch any k-sos fight going forward.

I met Krzysztof and his girl in Sydney, after his fight, and he still took a picture with me. They were both very cordial and polite. K-Sos, you are the man, a great ambassador for the sport and a badass fighter.
