    Nothing but respect for this man! The honesty and vulnerability is so admirable. I always wonder what goes through each individual fighter's mind when they prep and walk out. Thank you for the insight into your brain Donald!

          I see, didn't know that about Cowboy. That certainly explains his slow starts. Probably takes the 1st round to get loose.
          Once there he's mega dangerous!

                        I’m loving the honesty out of some fighters about these feelings lately. Great video, put together beautifully.
