Marcin Tybura

Light heavyweights Marcin Tybura and Sergey Spivak will meet on February 29, 2020 at UFC Norfolk which is set to be headlined by a flyweight championship bout between Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo, the UFC announced the matchup Thursday.

34-year-old Marcin Tybura will be fighting for the first time since UFC Fight Night 158 – Cowboy vs. Gaethje in September 2019, when he suffered a loss to Augusto Sakai (Brazil) by first-round knockout. The loss put him on a two-fight skid and dropped his professional record to 17 wins 6 losses and 0 draws (4-5-0 UFC).

Meanwhile, Sergey Spivak’s record currently stands at 10 wins, 1 loss and 0 draws (1-1-0 UFC). The 24-year-old Ukrainian will look to prevent Tybura from getting back on the winning track. Spivak last fought on October 5, 2019, defeating Australian Tai Tuivasa by an arm-triangle choke. That was his first win since suffering the only loss of his career at the hands of Walt Harris in May 2019.
