“We all fight in different arenas in our life. And I think that’s what draws so many people to fighting. It’s because it’s the actual physical manifestation of the way they feel inside.
“To me, to live is to fight. It’s about persevering. It’s about testing yourself. It’s about not becoming complacent. It’s about feeling alive in the moment because when you’re adrenaline is going, you’re thinking about that present moment. You’re not somewhere else, you’re not thinking about what’s going to happen 10 minutes from now and that’s the reason why I love fighting.
“When I’m in there, I feel free.”
