PashaBiceps to compete in legendary IEM Katowice venue

Papito will fight in the Spodek Arena on March 18. It’s the same place where he won a CS:GO Major with Virtus.pro.

One of the most popular names in the CS:GO international scene, Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski. announced that he will make his debut as a mixed martial arts (MMA) wrestler in a HIGH League event. The interesting thing is that pashaBiceps will fight in a venue that's familiar to him: Spodek Arena.

HIGH League tournament rules

The tournament will have MMA rules, and pashaBiceps asked for the community to cheer for him since this will be his second professional fight. His first one was also a HIGH League event, but with dirty boxing rules.

Today, the 34-year-old, also known as "Papito," is recognized by the CS:GO community. It was also in Spodek Arena where pashaBiceps became a CS:GO legend. In 2014, he put up a monstrous performance to help Virtus.pro win the ESL Major Series One Katowice event. People watched pashaBiceps win the Major trophy and the MVP award of that tournament.

How pashaBiceps made his debut

In February 2022, pashaBiceps made his debut in the professional wrestling scene with a technical knockout. It was the main event of HIGH League 2, and the Polish bodybuilder and influencer Michal "Owca WK" Owczarzak wasn't able to handle Papito's headshots.

While pashaBiceps had an early fall from what seemed to be a trip, he came back swinging. Both fighters were in incredible shape and went for it. Owca WK's decision to not put his hands up was noted by the commentators. Later, he payed the price for it.

That fight was also hosted in a place where pashaBiceps had already played some CS:GO before — the Tauron Arena. Virtus.pro placed fourth place during the PGL Major Kraków 2017 event there. With such a record, the community is expecting a lot from pashaBiceps's next fight.

Papito's fans will have to wait until March 18 to see how the Polish legend will perform in front of a different audience.
