Mankowski is one of the more experienced of our prospects, boasting 24 total mixed martial arts fights.  Among his eighteen careen wins are several very solid victories over Mohsen Bahari, Aslambek Saidov and a draw with UFC fighter Peter Sobotta.  I really like Mańkowski’s progression.  He is very experienced at a fairly high level and he is still just 26-years old.  Mankowski can at times be an aggressive striker.  He likes to move forward constantly.  One of the things that stands out about his striking game is his powerful kicks.  Mańkowski is not primarily striker and he has not typically used his strikes to finish fights, but he does have a much improved striking game.  He has shown glimpses of some power, and I believe he has the potential to have really good striking.  His movement is good and I like that he has become a solid counter puncher.  Sometimes he throws punches to wide and over-extends himself. He is a threat on the mat with submissions. Seven of his victories have come by way of submission and he has done that in a variety of ways.  As a result, we know he has a wide array of submission skills in his arsenal.  He is a threat from top position and from off of his back.  Opponents have to be careful inside his guard.  A question with Makowski is his consistency.   Mankowski currently is fighting for KSW in Poland, where he is likely well paid for his work.  I am not sure if we cab expect him to jump to the UFC, but if he was, I think he would have a successful run among the world’s best welterweights.
