I’ve been to my share of fights and I have seen many people waste so much energy on mind games. I feel that the moment the fighter does that, they lose focus on why they are there. Instead of focusing on what they have been training for they focus on getting in the persons head.
I have asked fighters why they do that? Some say its just for fun and they aren’t serious about it, the others answer made no sense to me. There are times that the fighters are going through some personal things and just can’t deal with everything at once. It is not easy dealing with day to day life, without adding all the stress of making weight, then having to deal with added curve balls life throws.
Everyone goes through things in life, if we all focus on the positive it will help you focus and think clearly.
