Ever felt so pumped about a fight to the extent of not wanting to watch it?

    Kinda. I've always been nervous for my favorite fighters but I had alcohol to dull it. This past weekend was the first time I was 100% sober for one of my favorite fighter's bout and I was seriously on edge. Oddly enough, the first time Whittaker got knocked down calmed me down.

    That fight had me on edge.

    I picked against Weidman 4 goddamn times in a row Anderson x2, Lyoto, Vitor. Picked Rockhold to beat him tho. Then picked him to beat Yoel and Mousasi.

    Aldo vs conor - I was okay but the morning of I woke up with a bad feeling about that fight and skipped it. Sure enough.

    good to know that I'm not the only one.
    This are just premature thoughts.. I might end up watching the fight but we'll see.

    McGregor vs Diaz 2 felt incredibly high stakes from a McGregor fans point of view.

    Ive never been so excited for a fight that i didnt want to watch it.

    There are times i dont want to watch certain fights but thats usually because i dont wanna see a guy i like lose.

    I always watch them, it's what I am waiting for after all but I do get nervous on behalf of my favorite fighters.

    No, but I did take a Xanax before Miocic vs Ngannou.

    Diaz/ mcgregor 1+2
    Rumble/Gus
    Cormier/Jones
    And most recently Whittaker/Romero 2

    All these matches gave me such an adrenaline rush that I could barely stand to watch, for all of them I was sat in silence, wide eyed and full of trepidation.

    Coincidentally all of these fights delivered.

    Usually I like to start off with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Trump will make American great again. Tiger woods is a boss. McDonald's makes you fat. Tacos are always good but burritos are great. Did you know you could save 15% or more on car insurance by switching to your mom.

    I would understand if its someone youre very close with like a relative or something.... but to feel like that about someone you dont know is kinda strange.

    I do get that nervous energy before big fights that involve fighters I'm a huge fan of, or fights that I have a lot of money on though.

    I suppose Machida vs Shogun II. I was sweating bullets. Both fighters were so dangerous then. Didn’t want either guy to lose.

    plenty of times.

    Shogun vs Chuckles
    Anderson vs Weidman 2
    Cain vs Bork Lazer
    Holm vs Honda

    And thats just those who are coming to my mind right now.

    I watch like this

    Even got to the point to read the RpR threads here instead of actually watching the damn thing.
