    Instead the usual, I'll win, I'm prepared, I had a great camp, I'm confident ...etc ..

    Did anyone try with complete opposite approach , like , yeah , I'll probably lose, I'm not so good as my opponent, my camp was bad, I'll do my best but I don't think I'm gonna win , etc ?

    I don't know about outright, but Nick Diaz leading up to his fight with Karo talked about how it's a really bad match up for him and he didn't have a lot of time to prepare, but its a fight so fuck it and he's still going out there to win.

    Leben said he thought he was going to lose against Wand (after the fight), and that he was scared shitless.

    I remember Fujita being unsure if he can win before his fight with Wanderlei in Pride.

    The green logo contrasting with the bright red hair and wand getting bulldozed, memorable

    Nick Diaz mentioned "getting ready to take his ass whooping" from GSP, if I remember correctly.

    Not specifically that I remember in those certain terms, but before Al got the fight with Khabib, he said something to the effect of:

    "I'm not fightin' that fuckin' dude, are you kidding me? Did you see what he did to Barboza? I mean, yeah, if you give me a million dollars, I'll fight him I guess."

    Was pretty funny lol.

    I'm very sure Nate said (immediately after he took the fight) that he's "probably gonna get murked," but I know he was just trying to emphasize how the odds were stacked against him. By UFC Embedded (fight week), he was confident.
