I had that reaction when Belfort uppercutted Henderson. I had that "Herb Dean" reaction.

This is true, I saw Duffee KO De Fries on acid, and I lost my faith in humanity. I couldn't, for the life of me, understand why would anybody fight another human being. Was such a foreign and evil concept to me at the time.

But when I watch it high, it's fucking amazing. I get emotionally involved in the fight much more. Saw Machida/Mousasi baked out of my mind, and Machida's fight ability completely blew my mind. Was amazing.

I also get these thoughts about how would I feel if I'm standing across from someone like JDS, who I know is a trained fucking killing machine and we're about to fight. Scary thought. I don't know why JDS, probably because he always brutally destroys guys.

Same here, we made the right choice that night.

I used to do that all the time, for the past several years. I never really noticed the brutality of it, rather the very nuanced parts of competition. I literally watched every moment of it, and was really in tune. Stopped for a while to compete in kickboxing, but even though I am really focused, nothing would compare to the focus of being blazed. You never miss a step..
