Humanizing Athletes: MMA Fighter Dustin Stoltzfus’ Favorite Things

MMA Fighter Dustin Stolzfus (12-1)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Dustin Stolzfus is one of the best middleweight prospects in the world right now. He gets a chance to fight for a UFC contract on August 11, 2020.

Stolzfus is from the United States but has fought his entire career in Germany. Since his first career loss back in 2015, Stolzfus is riding a nine-fight winning streak. Six of those nine wins have been finishes.

In his most recent fight, Stolzfus submitted his opponent using one of the rarest submissions in MMA, the twister.

According to, Stolzfus is ranked No. 1 of all German middleweights and is currently ranked No. 100 in the world of all the middleweight fighters. Not bad at all!

Stolzfus returns to action on season four, week two of “Dana White’s Contender Series.” In his biggest fight to date, he will take on Joesph Pyfer in the main event.

When asked what we should expect from his fight he simply said, “violence.”
