Karolina Kowalkiewicz’s Bio
Karolina Kowalkiewicz is a sensational Polish mixed martial artist who was born on October 15, 1985, in Lodz, Poland. The reason why she is called the Polish Princess is that she is Polish by nationality.

Later she received further training in Muay Thai and fought two amateur fights before she decided to turn it into a professional career.

This rise to fame brought her against Joanna Jedrzeiczyk, a former Ultimate Fighting Championship champion. Karolina’s goal in this fight was to fight for the straw-weight title.
She lost to Joanna by unanimous decision at UFC 205 on November 12, 2016, and then on June 3, 2017, at UFC 212, Karolina faced Cláudia Gadelha, who lost the fight by submission, as she was defeated naked from behind with a choke in the first round.
