Peter Sobotta Wiki Update Wiki

Sobotta is born in Zabrze Poland but grew up in Germany. He trained Judo and Taekwondo before falling in love with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
He currently holds a brown belt in this discipline under Dean Lister. 

He started training MMA at the Martial Arts School UCS Geislingen and had his first professional MMA fight with the age of 17. After a 8-1 start to his MMA Career, Sobotta signed a 4-fight deal with the UFC, but after losing his first 3 bouts via unanimous decision to Paul Taylor (on the first ever event in Germany at UFC 99 in Cologne), James Wilks and Amir Sadollah (on German turf in Oberhausen at UFC 122), his management asked UFC officials to terminate Sobotta's contract early after only 3 fights.

Since leaving the UFC, Sobotta went 5-0-1 in smaller promotions, finishing all of his opponents by rear naked choke in the first round.

Despite pursuing his own career as a fighter, Sobotta also works as an instructor for the German Free Fight Association and as a coach/cornerman for fellow german MMA fighters such as Pascal Krauss, Andreas Kraniotakes or Gregor Herb. In 2010, Sobotta opened his own gym, the Planet Eater Gym, based in Steinhofen (Germany).
