Chris Weidman: Singular Focus – Mental Game & Spirituality

Chris Weidman on the Mental Game & Spirituality

In his own words, UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Talks about his approach to the fight game and his spiritual connection with God and it’s importance in his life. While he has been through so much adversity in the past few months, his faith has remained strong. It’s something he draws upon whenever he steps into the octagon to fight. And it is something which helped him to victory against the long-reigning Anderson Silva. As Chris says in his won words;

“For me, preparation is all about the physical, the mental and most importantly, the spiritual. If I’m not spiritually in the right place, I’m a mess. You’re always trying to feel confident and to feel good about yourself, but what it comes down to is really giving up to someone else. Having faith. When I’m getting ready for a fight — when I’m in that locker room or I’m making that walk and I finally get to the Octagon — it’s all spiritual. When I’m spiritually in the right place, there’s no stopping me.”
