It’s an honor to fight in this tournament – interview with Wojciech Orlowski

We encourage you to read the interview with Silesian wrestler Wojciech Orlowski. The popular “Gentleman” will make his light heavyweight debut in the eight-man tournament at KSW 13 on May 7th in Katowice.

Hello Wojtek. How are your preparations for KSW 13 going?
- Very well. Michal Garnys from KSW Lab is helping me, he tested my conditioning and prepared special training program. I’m really grateful for his help. As for my gym, nothing has changed, I still train with Pawel Nastula and other formidable fighters.
On which areas of your game did you work most intensively?
- First of foremost on my endurance, but being a pro fighter you have to train every aspect of mixed martial arts.
Could you comment on your performance at KSW 12. What mistakes did you make?
- There is nothing to comment on. I didn’t do well. Olivia is a very good fighter and he proved that in KSW, where he not only beat me, by my sparing partner Daniel Omielanczuk. I made a lot of mistakes in that fight. I lost, because I was evidently not prepared for such a challenge. To be honest I want to leave this stage of my career behind me.
You’re dropping to light heavyweight for May’s KSW. How is the weight loss going?
- I have eight kilograms to lose. An outstanding nutritionist Piotr Gluchowski helps me out. I applied myself to his instructions and I have to admit that it is effective. I lose weight, but I don’t lose strength.
You are from Silesia. Do you have special motivation from the fact that the show takes place in Katowice?
- I’m really happy that I’ll fight closer to my mothercity. I know that a lot people from Raciborz are coming to Spodek to support me. I hope I won’t disappoint anybody.
You are familiar with the names of your five potential opponents. What can you say about them?
- Each fighter has a better MMA record than me and is more experienced. It is an honor to fight in this tournament among these great mixed martial artists.
Is there anyone specific, whom do you want to face in the first round?
- I believe Janek Blachowicz is the strongest, but we won’t face each other in the first round because he also represents Poland and we both train in the same gym. I don’t think about any particular opponent, when I decided to participate in the tournament I was mentally ready to fight each of them.
Is this true that Polish Hip Hop group Hemp Gru will accompany you during your ring entrance?
- That’s true. Hemp Gru is my sponsor and they’re my friends, I’m pleased that they will escort me to the ring.
What will be your entrance song?
- A song about your daily life – “in Hemp’s army”
Wojtek please invite our readers to Katowice’s Spodek for KSW 13.
- I would like to invite everybody to see KSW 13 live. It will be a great spectacle on a very high level.
I want also to give my love to my mum, who is very worried when I fight. Greeting to all fans who will keep their fingers crossed for me and the ones who slander me. I’d like to thank my sponsors: Mevago from Raciborz, Warsaw’s Vogue Style restaurant, clothing companies Formma and DillGang.
