Marcin Tybura (born November 9, 1985) is a Polish Heavyweight mixed martial artist who currently fights in the UFC's Heavyweight division. A professional competitor since 2011, he previously fought for M-1 and was an M-1 Global Heavyweight Champion and M-1 Grand Prix 2013 Heavyweight Champion.[2] As of May 17, 2019, he is #12 in official UFC heavyweight rankings.[3]

Early life[edit]

Tybura began training in 2006 after a friend introduced him to the sport. Within weeks, he began feeling the urge to compete. However, he would not make his professional debut until several years later.[4]

He earned a master's degree at the University of Łódź.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Tybura made his professional MMA debut November 5, 2011 with a submission victory over Robert Marcok. The bout was part of the Polish MMA Championships. He would win both fights of this one-night tournament.

Tybura's first six fights as a professional would take place within Poland, following which he signed on with notable MMA promotion M-1. At M-1 Challenge 42 on October 20, 2013 he would defeat Konstantīns Gluhovs to win the M-1 Grand Prix 2013, which had begun in February of that year. On August 15, 2014 he would meet another future UFC heavyweight, Damian Grabowski, for the M-1 heavyweight title.[5] Tybura would win the fight via a North-South choke.
