Now on a 2-fight win streak in the WEC with victories over top rising contender Anthony Pettis and most recently, an armbar submission over Karen Darabedyan, Bart promises to be a contender himself. Coach and mentor, Jeff Curran, felt it is time to move him up to the rank of Black Belt. “His Jiu-Jitsu is awesome and his time has been put in over the years for sure” said Curran. “I am so proud of Bart for holding the rank proudly and representing my style of Jiu-Jitsu.”

“It’s a very proud moment for me and I hope to make everyone proud and represent everything I have learned when I fight.” said Palaszewski, “Of course I still like to bang but I could get used to tapping people out too”.
Bart’s next fight for the WEC should be announced soon.
