What Is Your Mindset?

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.… Continue reading What Is Your Mindset?

Combating Epilepsy Within The Cage

Who is Miguel Cuevas? At a fight I attended for Premier FC, I noticed something different about a fighter, Miguel Cuevas.

The Safety Of The Fighter
