Bocek is one of Canada's first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts and has been studying the art for more than a decade. He first studied under Rickson and Renzo Gracie and then moved on to Nova União where he received his black belt through Joao Roque.
He fought against Alvin Robinson at UFC 91 on November 16, 2008 and won by submission. His last fight was against David Bielkheden at UFC 97, where he dominated Bielkheden and submitted him by rear naked choke in the first round.
He was expected to face Matt Veach on December 5, 2009 at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale until Veach stepped up to fight Frank Edgar as Kurt Pellegrino's replacement. Bocek then fought UFC newcomer Joe Brammer on the same card. He defeated Brammer via first round submission.
