Piechota is an exciting prospect out of Poland.  Oskar is a grappling standout.  He is an elite level grappler that is finding success in MMA.  When I watch, Piechota, I am reminded of Gunnar Nelson.  I believe Piechota could actually be better than Gunnar.  He has is a little better athlete and I believe his striking is better suited for MMA.  Piechota is not a dominant wrestler, but he has been effective enough.  His submissions are super high level.  In fact, I do not think that there are many middleweights in the world who would fair well on the mat with Piechota.  He has very quick transitions and can finish a fight very quickly.  He is so confident with his grappling ability, he is willing to pull guard at times.  His striking is not elite, but it is solid.  I believe that his threat on the ground will actually make him more effective in the striking department.  I do worry that there are going to be fighters he will not be able to get to the ground.  If he ends up in a kickboxing contest, he could be in trouble.  Regardless, I believe that Oskar is a guy that UFC or Bellator would love to get their hands on.  I do not think that it is out of the range of possibility that he ends up down a weight class, but even at middleweight, he is one of the top prospects in the sport.
