Michal ‘Mad Dog’ Figlack 7-0-0 is a Polish Professional Mixed Martial Artist currently competing in the Lightweight division, representing Trojan Free Fighters. He has competed for Krwawy Sport, Raged MMA UK, and Cage Warriors.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to speak to me today Michal and also to congratulate you on your recently announced inclusion for the CW141 card.
I hope training camp has been going well in the build-up to your highly anticipated return to the cage.
For the past 2 years, you have given CW fans some unmissable moments in the cage, deconstructing each and every opponent that has been put in your path.
What does it mean to you to call Cage Warriors the home of your professional journey?
Looking back on your explosive impact on the London based organisation, is there a particular moment that will always stand out for you?
“I have a lot of great moments that I remember. It’s hard to pick which one is best but it’s between my first fight in which a lot of people doubted me but I came in and showed who I am. There is also the KO I landed in my 2nd outing against Anthony O’Connor.”
Many warriors come from a fighting family, but not many can say they have the opportunity to fight alongside them within the same organisation.
It must be a great feeling to work alongside your brother Mateusz as you prepare as well as share fight cards in the proverbial Lion’s den to compete?
“Competing alongside my brother is great. We get to see all the hard work we put in pay off and climb to the top together.”
The next step down your notable CW career brings you to London, your opponent is yet to be announced but if your unbeaten professional record is anything to go by, It will be a highly anticipated inclusion to the return to the OVO Arena Wembley.
London has played host to many great battles in the cage for many years. What does it mean to you to showcase your artillery in the nation’s capital?
“Fighting in London is amazing. Sometimes I stop to think, a guy like me from where I come from, I am now fighting not just in the capital of the UK but some would consider the capital of Europe.”
It’s still early days until we bear witness to the 20th anniversary, but it’s already lining up to be quite a night of pure unadulterated organised violence.
I think I speak for many when I say that a close eye will be kept on the announcement for your upcoming inclusion on the CW141 card. I wish you all the best for the rest of your training and I look forward to witnessing you out there once again.
Last but not least do you have a message for the fans that will be in attendance and anybody you’d like to give a shout-out to?
“Thank you to all the people that have been supporting me. Make sure to watch my next fight on July 22nd. I’m going to put on a show and get the win.”
