Former UFC women’s strawweight title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz believes that her best years are behind her.

Kowalkiewicz comes off a lopsided defeat to Alexa Grasso at UFC 238 this past weekend (Sat. June 8, 2019). Following the defeat, the 33-year-old took to Instagram and posted a lengthy statement. Surprisingly, Kowalkiewicz admitted she believes her best days inside the Octagon are probably behind her. However, that doesn’t mean she’s hanging up her gloves just yet:

“Big congratulations for @alexa_grasso you did a great job thank you all for your support and warm words. Do not worry about me, it was better, but I’m fine. Bruises on the face will heal soon. I left my heart in this fight, but unfortunately I missed something … I’m not the same player anymore.

“Unfortunately, the painful truth is that the best years and the top of the form are behind me, there are a lot of young, talented ambitious players who have to give way … but do not worry, I will come back and give good fights maybe not at the very top “But I will give you many emotions, just give me some time … thank you again!  #ufc #lovemyjob #kk”

Kowalkiewicz is currently on a three-fight losing streak. The first of those losses came against Jessica Andrade, in which she was knocked out cold by the Brazilian powerhouse at UFC 228 in September. She returned in March against Michelle Waterson, who out-classed Kowalkiewicz for a unanimous decision victory.

Now, after her loss to Grasso, a 25-year-old up-and-comer, it will be interesting to see what’s next for Kowalkiewicz.

A tremendous UFC women’s strawweight match-up has been added to the UFC 238 pay-per-view (PPV) card.

The UFC has announced that former 115-pound title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz returns to action against Alexa Grasso:

Kowalkiewicz has had a rough time inside the Octagon as of late. She has suffered back-to-back losses in her last two fights. The first being a knockout defeat to Jessica Andrade, followed by a decision defeat to Michelle Waterson.

Now, she’ll look to get back into the win column against Grasso, who is also struggling at the moment. Grasso comes off a submission defeat to Tatiana Suarez last May. With a win over Kowalkiewicz, it would be a big way for Grasso to get back on the right track.

Check out the updated UFC 238 card below:

  • For vacant UFC bantamweight championship: Marlon Moraes vs. Henry Cejudo
  • Women’s flyweight: (C) Valentina Shevchenko vs. Jessica Eye
  • Women’s strawweight: Tatiana Suarez vs. Nina Ansaroff
  • Bantamweight: Jimmie Rivera vs. Petr Yan
  • Heavyweight: Tai Tuivasa vs. Blagoy Ivanov
  • Women’s strawweight: Karolina Kowalkiewicz vs. Alexa Grasso
  • Women’s flyweight: Katlyn Chookagian vs. Joanne Calderwood
  • Women’s strawweight: Felice Herrig vs. Xiaonan Yan
