Win or lose, Krzysztof Soszynski just wants to put on good fights

Krzysztof Soszynski realizes that fighters are going to lose fights, regardless of how great they are.

Soszynski will put his two fight win streak on the line tonight when he meets Igor Pokrajac at UFC 140 as part of the ION-televised prelim portion of the show.

Since his time on The Ultimate Fighter 8, Soszynski has put together a respectable 6-2 record, including wins over Stephan Bonnar and Mike Massenzio. However, being 34 years old and a veteran of the sport, “The Polish Experiment” realizes that putting on exciting fights is the most important aspect to the game.

“I don’t have the greatest talent when it comes to mixed martial arts. I feel like I’m decently well-rounded, but one thing I like to go do is put exciting fights on,” said Soszynski, in a recent interview with the UFC’s website. “It’s not about winning or losing to be honest. I’m going to lose fights – fighters are going to lose fights – but it’s how you lose them.”

Soszynski and Pokrajac were set to meet this past June, but injuries ended the fight before it could happen. Along with rehabbing his own woes, Soszynski also took part in Kevin James‘ MMA-film, “Here Comes the Boom” and was Mickey Rourke’s stunt double for Immortals.

“For right now, I’m having a lot of opportunities outside of fighting coming my way, and I’m exploring those opportunities as well; they’re great,” Soszynski said. “But first and foremost, I’m a fighter; that’s how I make my living, and I’m really looking forward to continuing that.”

The prelims start on ION at 6:00 PM EST and run until the PPV fires up at 9:00 PM EST with headlining action between light heavyweight champ Jon Jones< and former title-holder Lyoto Machida.
