“I told him to expect everything to be a little different. The nerves and everything surrounding the fight is going to get to you more than the actual fight.”

“It’s everything that happens outside the cage that affects you. And it may affect you a little bit when you step in there because you use so much energy on media obligations, the intensity of the weigh-ins, the crowd and everything, and all this other stuff, it gets into your mind, you’re ultra pumped up, you’re in there warming up way before you should be in there warming up and just wasting this great energy you need for the cage, and…conserve it. Conserve your energy, rein it in, and just be ready to do what you do everything you step inside the cage.”

UFC heavyweight fighter and Luke Rockhold’s teammate at The American Kickboxing Academy, Daniel Cormier, took to “The MMA Hour’ recently to discuss Luke’s UFC debut this weekend against Vitor Belfort.

Hoe one warning? Control your nerves!
