Marcin Held found the beginning of his promising mixed-martial-arts career on a billboard.

The then-9-year-old Held was searching for something new to try, and he spotted the advertisement for a gym in his Polish city of Tychy. He wandered in to check out the facility.

"It was (an) accident," Held told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) in his improving English this week. "The club is one of the best in jiu jitsu in Poland."

And Held took to it quickly. Now, at 18, the 155-pounder already has an 8-0 start to his professional career after compiling an undefeated amateur record.
