Mixed martial arts career
Sobotta was born in Zabrze, Poland and grew up in the small German town of Balingen. His childhood hero was kung fu movie star Jackie Chan who inspired him to take up martial arts, beginning with judo and then taekwondo. He then took up Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu when an MMA school opened near his home town.
He had his first professional mixed martial arts fight at the age of 17.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
He then faced The Ultimate Fighter 7 winner, Amir Sadollah on November 13, 2010 at UFC 122. He lost the fight via unanimous decision and was promptly released from the promotion along with Goran Reljic and Seth Petruzelli.
