It took me a while to learn how to spell ‘Krzysztof Soszynski’ and ‘Mariusz Pudzianowski’ when writing articles, but I finally got it right. That being said, I still hope neither name ever appears on a spelling test, because I’ll probably get it wrong. There is no textbook logic when it comes to translating polish names into English; it’s as though someone with poor keyboarding skills mashed their some letters into a computer, printed it onto a birth certificate, and the rest of the world is left to brave the excitement of never knowing what letter comes next. Coincidentally, this same person was in charge of naming every last person in Poland and made all surnames end with “ski” to remind everyone of his favorite winter pass-time. If not for delicious pierogis and some of the world’s best vodka, most people would leave Poland off their list of “places-to-see-before-I-kick-the-bucket” list. Thankfully, you love pierogis.
What the Polish don’t like are performance enhancing drugs and rather than speculate, Krzysztof Soszynski is certain that 85% to 96% of fighters use PED’s.
“I would definitely say somewhere in the percentage of 85 percent of guys are definitely using, especially the guys who can afford it are definitely using. I would even go as high as 95 to 96 percent of the top level athletes that are definitely using it. You can clearly see it. I even had someone talk to me about stem cell injections. You’re looking at stuff like EPO, and at least five or six different counterfeit drugs out there that people are using and they’re not even detectable in the body. It’s just amazing to me how far athletes are willing to go to make their mark in this sport.”
If this is true, The Polish Experiment’s abilities to make friends from TUF Season 8 may have just went out the window. It was like that one time in baseball when some dude blew the metaphoric whistle on all his teammates and they all turned on him pretty quickly, or that time in cycling, football, hockey, pro-wrestling, boxing…
Perhaps PEDs are here to stay & plague athletic accomplishments from one sport to the next until they discover that gaining weight is as easy as regularly eating more pierogis and drinking vodka. Babe Ruth would have preferred hot dogs and beer, but it’s a Polish themed article and we try to stay consistent here. “Do zobaczenia.” [Source]
