    Default Question for fighters/trainers

    when you are fighting on a show, or have one of your fighters competing, do you make a big effort to watch the rest of the show?

    might be a bit odd watching the fights before yours / still, might help you get in the zone. i dunno.

    afterwards, if there are fights left on the card, do you make a point of watching them? or fuck off down the pub?

    In an ideal world, if I'm fighting at the top of the card I won't be there until later on, just in time to warm up, get ready and get out there. Nothing worse than the sitting around all day stuff you have to do sometimes.

    If I'm there and I've got time to kill I'll watch some fights and what have you, and if there are any of personal interest afterwards then I'll try check them out. That's not always the case though.

    If a teammate/friend is fighting, that's the only time I'll try to make a concerted effort to actually watch the fights. Watching other fights before doesn't really help or hinder me personally, it's just something to pass the time.

    Think Jay nailed it really.

    I think that if a few team mates win before you go on it adds extra pressure. But i think generally speaking people just want to get their fight over and done with.

    I've always advised going outside to the venue and walking around so the crowd doesnt overwhelm you when you walk out.

    But the best thing about all sport is that once your in the moment all these kind of things go out the window. But conserving energy is always smart. I was always told you wouldnt skip and shadow box for 3 hours before sparring so why do it for a fight.

    I wish I actually got to see more fights but mostly it depends where either myself or one of my fighters is on the card. I can easily leave a show having only cornered our lads all night and not seen anyone else. Often its useful to see a future opponent fight first hand so if I can get out I do.

    For me it depends on where i'm fighting.

    If i'm on a local show i like to turn up early, get a feel of the venue and then as people begin to filter in i like to chill with a few friends and watch the fights/ have a laugh until about 90 mins before my fight then i'll go get wrapped up and start to get ready.

    If i've fought away from home i like to turn up for medicals/rule meeting as early as possible when the venue is empty and get those out the way. If the cage was already assembled i'd get a feel of it and then fuck off until 90 mins before my fight.

    If i have friends fighting on the card i will stay away as best i can. I get incredibly pumped up watching friends fight and come my fight i've had an adrenaline dump.

    After my fight i always get pissed and try and finger a fat girl
