Two potential contenders for the UFC middleweight championship take to the octagon on Saturday as Eryk Anders faces Poland’s Krzysztof Jotko at 185 lbs. in a battle of fighters looking to crack the UFC Top 15 rankings in the division.
Anders has turned around a swoon of three straight losses into back-to-back wins, including a first-round stoppage of Vinicius Moreira last June. The 33-year-old has a 13-4 record in MMA, and has KO’d two-thirds of his victims in the UFC.
Krzysztof Jotko is 21-4 in his career, and 8-4 in his UFC career that started in 2013. After a three-match skid, he’s picked up a pair of decisions over Alen Amedovski and Marc-Andre Barriault in his last two outings. With 65% of his octagon wins coming from the judges, he might want to have the match take a bit longer than Anders while searching for victory and a spot in the Top 15 division rankings.
