    VICE just published this profile of Jake Ellenberger and the implementation of sports psychology into his training camp.

    Are there other fighters who are known to use sports psychology as part of training? What are your thoughts on the mental preparation aspects of MMA fighting and training?

    GSP was very open about his use of a sports psychologist post Serra TKO.

    I think Cheal said he got help from one when talking to Hall about confidence on TUF
