Siekacz, who is nicknamed ‘ArmPowerGirl, took on Piotr ‘Mua Boy’ Lisowski in one of two intergender fights on the controversial MMA-VIP3 card. The fight ended in the second round when Lisowski completed a Jude-style takedown, got into a full mount position and went for the ground and pound.
With a series of strikes landing cleanly and Siekacz struggling to protect her face, the referee called for the stoppage. Footage of the contest went viral, with many fans slamming the decision to have men and women facing one another.

A couple of days on, Siekacz has weighed in with thoughts on Instagram. “Hi guys, I’m back alive and we go on,” she wrote on the social media platform. “I’m not going to get slapped by a guy anymore. I consciously took up this fight – that is, I knew what I was [doing].
‘I am waiting for some interesting suggestions and I will continue to develop. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” Siekacz had earlier given a post-fight interview to FightsportPL, expressing regret over what she felt was a premature stoppage.
“I am very dissatisfied, it didn’t work out as I wanted… I am disappointed in myself,” Siekacz explained, as per The Mirror. “Unfortunately for now I still have those negative emotions.
“I am surprised the referee stopped the fight, because I got more hits before and I could withstand those so I think the third round could easily happen… so I have a lot of regret for the referee that he stopped it.”
The second intergender bout in Czestochowa saw Michał Przybyłowicz, also known as ‘Polski Ken’ due to his plastic barbie doll appearance, beat Wiktoria Domżalska in the first round when she was unable to defend herself.
In response to the staging of two fights, the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) said: “It is unacceptable that women and men should compete against each other in combat sports, essentially for reasons of safety but also fair play, and we in no way endorse this.”
