This interview with Andrei was fantastic, he in some ways seems to be a very simple man but in other ways, he’s very sophisticated. He explains that he is a perfectionist while at the same time he has a funny European sense of humor. What I found most interesting and inspirational about this conversation is that it reinforces much of what should be known about the true warrior spirit.
Real warriors are not fighting because they want to be tough or because they even like or want to combat most of the time. The truest, longest lasting and hardest warrior to defeat is the man who is fighting for his tribe. It’s the man who is fighting not to glorify himself but to protect, provide, and serve all of the people he loves whether they’re beside him or behind him.
Andrei, throughout this interview, consistently makes the point that he is fighting for the people he loves and as a result, he has not only been able to fight longer than many others have but also to have a very rich and fruitful career as a fighter in the UFC.
I give much respect to this former heavyweight champion not only for his accomplishments but also for the type of man he is and continues to try to be as he moves on in his life. He is one very good example of a protector, provider, and a true warrior through and through. You’ll understand once you hear the interview, enjoy!
