I have fought 28 fights in MMA in almost twenty years.
I won 22 of them. I lost six. The victories were gratifying, and I learned a lesson from each of the defeats.
I was the first Pole with a UFC contract and I like to think I paved the way for others. I started very humbly, practising karate and kung-fu in a village near Nowy Sącz. I used to earn extra money as a bouncer. But I always wanted to be more than that. I craved knowledge about the world, about people. I was looking for experiences, not easy victories. I preferred the difficult ones – the ones that cost a lot of effort.
I did not take any shortcuts. I avoided stereotypes. They make it harder to pursue sports – just like to be successful in alcohol production. This is why Lumberman’s Distillates was created, and this is why Lumberhill appeared in the market. I am fascinated by the world of craft beverages. I like to go back to what was good, although it is forgotten. I focus on quality, not quantity. Without crowdfunding, tokens and passive income, instead at a slower pace, with passion and commitment.
