As you may know the 5 time Worlds Strongest Man winner Mariusz Pudzianowski has been competing in mixed martial arts. Recently Mariusz fought former UFC champion Tim Sylvia and was defeated in the second round after he tapped out due to strikes.
I have always been a fan of Mariusz because of his complete domination of the WSM competition as well as his crazy work ethic. This defeat proves that even the strongest man in the world has areas where he can improve and neglecting skill and technique can lead to defeat.
So what does it mean to be the strongest man? Here it means never quitting, never giving up, never neglecting all aspects of athletic performance and always giving 100% effort. I have no doubt Mariusz will improve because he has proven in the past to have the heart and determination to push himself to the next level of performance.
