Adam is a taller guy and could really use that to his advantage.  He is listed at 6’5″ and while he is not as tall as Stefan Struve, he somewhat reminds me of Struve.  I think like Struve, he has a tendency to leave himself open to strikes, but has shown a good ability to finish with submissions.  His win over Zoumana Cisse is a good indication of where he is.  Cisse is a very good heavyweight and Wieczorek got the win.  However, there were times where he was getting out muscled and beat up.  I think that Adam can do very well if he can endure the initial onslaught of most heavyweights and then capitalize on the ground.  Adam has moments on the feet where he looks very good, however, my biggest concern is his striking defense.  Despite that perceived weakness, I really like his submission ability.  He is dangerous off of his back.  His guard is very active.  He has shown himself to be a very slick submission guy, which is not common at heavyweight.  He could be a decent addition to a heavyweight roster.  His only career loss came at the hands of Marcin Tybura.  I believe given his age and skillset that in short order Wieczorek will be a highly sought after heavyweight.
