    Getting punched in the face word probably settle a fighter down in a hurry. And I'm being serious. So do what ya gotta do to make it to the start of the fight.

    Karo Parisyan actually had a panic attack before his fight with Alves.

    "Basically, eight months ago, I was diagnosed with panic attacks,” Parisyan said, admitting that he felt ‘girly’ when the doctor first broke the news. “It’s something I have been trying to deal with. I am trying to keep my head clear.”

    While it is unclear what brought on the panic attacks, Parisyan knew the disorder played a part in his loss to Alves in April. When the 25-year-old arrived in Broomfield, Colorado to face Alves on the undercard of the April 2 Ultimate Fight Night show, he immediately fought the urge to return to his home state of California. In fact, just moments before he was set to face the dangerous Brazilian Alves, Parisyan turned to a close friend and proclaimed “I want to go home.”

    Despite the urge to leave, Parisyan managed to put his uneasiness aside and enter the Octagon. However, he begrudgingly admits that he wasn’t in the right frame of mind to fight that night. For Parisyan, the result was unnerving. For the first time in his UFC career, Parisyan fell victim to a TKO loss at the hands of Alves. He was stopped in under a minute of the second round."


    As someone who suffers from frequent panic attacks I can't imagine what that was like. Depending on what symptoms he was having (he would need to have at least four on the DRM-IV to qualify as a panic attack) he very likely was feeling as if he was dying.

    David Loiseau said that happened to him every time he fought in "bigger" fight.
    He was puking or close to passing out before every fight.
    He said that's the reason he put shitty perfomance on a big stage.

    Do what Condit did when he fought Diaz.
    Or just watch the Joe Morreira vs Paul Varelans fight in fast-forward, you'll get the gist.

    He would have to be pulled. No doctor is letting someone in a full panic attack compete.

    If a fighter had a legitimate panic attack immediately before a fight, like "during or after the walkout" immediately before, there's no way they could fight. "Bad nerves" aren't anything close to a panic attack.

    Struve had a panic attack in the lockerroom before his fight with Mitrione and it had to be cancelled

    Ask Donald Cerrone. He claims that the fear of the big lights and losing/disappointing his friends and fans makes him want to leave and he swears he will never fight again.

    Stefan Struve had one and they cancelled his fight, because it was causing irregular heart beats

    If you're medically cleared, but the panic is all in your mind...fight

    Honestly, once you start focusing on the fight, which will serve as a distraction, you'll focus less on the panic

    Its all about flow
