MMA Sun 2014 Prospect Spotlight: The Flyweights – #6 – Marcin Lasota

MMA Sun’s #6 flyweight prospect is Polish prospect, Marcin Lasota. Lasota has recently signed with the Cage Warriors promotion in marcinlasotaEngland and will soon make his flyweight debut. Lasota has collected an impressive 7-0 career record fighting mostly within the bantamweight division. The drop in a weight class could really prove beneficial for Marcin.

One of the factors that we really looked at in ranking prospects is age. While we have seen fighters perform very well at a very high level further along in age, generally speaking, a younger fighter has great potential to grow and mature as a fighter. Lasota is just 24-years old.

Training out of Gracie Barra Lodz, Lasota has a very effective ground game. He is a serious threat from the bottom (as Artur Jevsejcik found out) and has an active guard.  Marcin is a bit tentative on his feet, but when he decides to be more aggressive in his striking he does quite well.  His striking is not awkward like many grapplers.  He will need to improve upon his striking and his defense on the feet, but his grappling can carry him for now.  If and when he gets to the UFC, those weakness will need to be strengthened.

With the UFC looking to make a trip to Poland in 2014, it would make perfect sense for a guy like Lasota to be signed to fight on that card. However, I would contend that he would be a good signing regardless.

Marcin credits his success to his coaches Marcin Rogowski, who he dubs “the father of all my achievements,” boxing coach Paweł Bobnis, Muay Thai coach Adrian Dziarnowski and BJJ coach Tomasz “Wujek” Piwowarski.  Macin says “I hope that hard work in the end would compensate allowing my dreams to come true.”
