    Look at this big guy DC sprinting faster than Usan Bolt

    I see a lot of fighters already in a sweat by the time they make it to the cage
    i know diaz and dc sprint before fights
    whats the purpose behind actually sweating instead of just getting the blood flowing / heart rate up?

    And for yourself, do you get itchy before you sweat?

    If they come into the fight sweaty it may also provide an advantage grappling in the first round

    If you’re covered in sweat you’re harder to grapple I guess that may play a little factor into it

    they are scared and nervous, that helps to set things right
    imagine you do that before the job interview, you would be more confident and less insecure

    Seriously???

    So basically you're asking "why do people warm up and stretch before exercise"??

    Goddamnit, fuck this place.

    As soon as the fight starts some guy is going to try to take their head off. Got to get the brain up to speed and in the moment, get some intensity going

    Realistically you want to catch that second wind by the time you step in the cage so you don't have all of that nervous energy.

    Not sure if you read the title or not, but the question was clearly why get drenched in sweat before a fight as opposed to just getting warmed up
