Knockout of the Day: Maciej Jewtuszko Gives Anthony Njokuani a $10,000 Beating


(Fight starts at the 5:50 mark. Props: MMAVideosPL)

Polish Anderson Silva? Not quite yet, but Maciej Jewtuszko is well on his way to making his name in the U.S. Closing out the preliminary portion of WEC 50 against Anthony Njokuani, things started out shaky the WEC newcomer. Jewtuszko got punched out of the air and onto his ass when Njokuani caught and countered his double-kick attempt. Njokuani made Jewtuszko pay with some hard punches from the top, but eventually decided to let Maciej to his feet. It was a decision that Njokuani would immediately regret.

Watch as Jewtuszko finds the right moment to land a spinning backfist/elbow to Njokuani’s chin. The follow-up guillotine choke attempt doesn’t pan out, but the finishing uppercuts certainly do. The win netted Jewtuszko his eighth consecutive stoppage victory, and his first WEC knockout bonus. Expect to see this guy again in the near future.

‘WEC 50: Cruz vs. Benavidez’ Aftermath — Press Conference Highlights, Payouts, Villains + More


(Props: YouTube.com/Heavy)

— If you thought last night’s WEC main event wasn’t as close as the judges scored it, Dominick Cruz would respectfully agree with you. As the reigning bantamweight champ said after his fight with Joseph Benavidez (skip to the 2:59 mark above): 

"In my humble opinion, I thought I won all the rounds…I think that the crowd has a big part to play in the judges’ opinion sometimes. Also, he caught me with a real slick knee up against the cage that made me bleed real bad. I would assume the blood could have swayed the judges a little as well."

Benavidez was also surprised that one of the judges saw it his way: "I figured I didn’t do enough to win, but I wasn’t watching the fight, so when the judge did say my name it was quite a surprise. I was like "wow, could this happen? Is this, like, the work of God or something?" For the record, FightMetric gave every round to Cruz for outpointing Benavidez in striking (103-46 total) and takedowns (5-0 total).

— $10,000 performance bonuses were handed out to the following fighters…
Knockout of the Night: Newcomer Maciej Jewtuszko for using a spinning back elbow and a pair of nasty uppercuts to wreck Anthony Njokuani in 96 seconds.
Submission of the Night: Anthony Pettis for finishing Shane Roller via triangle choke with just nine seconds left in the fight, after wearing Roller down with his impressively-flashy striking attacks. (How ’bout that capoeira head kick in round one?)
Fight of the Night: Scott Jorgensen and Brad Pickett for their 15-minute smash-up which went all over the cage and didn’t slow down for one second. Round two was easily one of the best MMA rounds of 2010.

WEC 50: The New Guys


(Maciej Jewtuszko vs. Erikas Petraitis, 5/14/10)

Two hot lightweight prospects with identical records will be making their WEC debuts during the prelims of tonight’s "Cruz vs. Benavidez" show on Versus, and if the MMA Gods allow it, you might get your first glance at them. Of course, making the broadcast would require them to either win or lose in spectacular fashion. So which will it be? Get to know them below and let us know what you think…

MACIEJ "Irokez" JEWTUSZKO (LW)
Experience: 7-0 record (all wins by stoppage in the first two rounds), competing in Poland and Germany. Last fought at a Beast of the East event on June 12th, where he defeated Edvardas Norkeliunas by first-round heel-hook.
Will be facing: Anthony Njokuani (12-3, 3-2 WEC) in the last bout of the prelims.
Lowdown: First things first — his name is pronounced Mah-chey Yev-Tushko. The 29-year-old firefighter is a Polish national champion in Muay Thai, but started his fight training with jiu-jitsu. Like his knockout-artist opponent Anthony Njokuani, Jewtuszko prefers to keep fights standing. He admires Mariusz Pudzianowski and Pawel Nastula for representing Poland in MMA, and says "It would be an honor to someday hear me described as the Polish Anderson Silva." Jewtuszko trains with Berzerkers Team Poland. As his manager Shu Hirata explains, "Besides being a great striker and a top grappler, one of the best qualities about Jewtuszko is that he never get intimated with anyone. He is a firefighter so he has gone through many dangerous situations so he has got the heart of a warrior."
