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. As of May 17, 2019, he is #12 in official UFC heavyweight rankings.
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.
He earned a master's degree at the University of Łódź.
Mixed martial arts career
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. Tybura would win the fight via a North-South choke.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Tybura was supposed to face Mark Hunt on November 19, 2017 at UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs. Tybura. On October 11, 2017, Hunt was pulled from the fight by UFC officials citing "medical concerns" on recent Hunt's first person interview statement, and Hunt was replaced by Fabrício Werdum. He lost the fight via unanimous decision.
