    Some fighters may have been absolute beasts in the gym, in sparring.... But once they step into the octagon it's another story. Nerves get to em and they just don't fight at their potential.

    Any note worthy examples ?

    Silva got busted after shattering his leg. Can’t really blame him. I was nervous kicking a heavy bag the next time at the gym lol- he had to be freaked out.

    Kat Zingano. Bamboozled herself in the match that counted most.
