I used to look at partying as a mental safety net for if I were to ever lose. I would say to myself “if he beats me, at least I know that wasn’t my best.” I’m now at a place in my life where I am ready to be courageous enough to give my absolute best. Between my now five months of complete sobriety, adding new strength and conditioning coaches, new jujitsu coaches, and having a full-time nutritionist, I am now sure that what I will bring April 23 will be my best. I find myself feeling more vulnerable than ever, but also more courageous. I’m ready to dare to be great. I’m ready to see how far I can actually take this thing.
