World Extreme CagefightingEdit
Jewtuszko then signed for the WEC and made his debut at WEC 50 - where he was regarded as a heavy underdog  - against Anthony Njokuani. Jewtuszko went on to defeat his opponent via TKO (punches) early in the first round. By doing so, he was awarded the Knockout of the Night bonus. Maciej was scheduled to make his second World Extreme Cagefighting appearance against Ricardo Lamas at WEC 53, but had to withdraw as he suffered a broken hand during training.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Jewtuszko faced Curt Warburton on February 27, 2011 at UFC 127 and suffered his first loss of his professional career via unanimous decision. After the loss, Jewtuszko was released from the promotion.
Jewtuszko made his Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki debut at KSW 17 against Artur Sowiński, losing after being knocked out by punches 46 seconds into the first round.
Jewtuszko then rematched Artur Sowiński at KSW 21 to crown the first KSW Lightweight Champion. This time around Jewtuszko won via submission (d'arce choke) in the second round to claim the title.
At KSW 24, Jewtuszko was scheduled to defend his KSW Lightweight title against Andre Winner. However, he was replaced by Mateusz Gamrot in the weeks prior to the event. Gamrot went on to defeat Winner and earned himself a title shot in the process.
