Having being chosen last and being matched up against Team Whittaker’s first pick didn’t take me by surprise.
In fact, I was prepared and I mentioned to Macy that I’ll be next pick as we were walking out to the TUF gym.
You may ask how I knew, but think about it. Based on Team Whittaker’s last fight pick, it just made sense for their team.
I’ve always been the underdog in every matchup I’ve fought and I didn’t see this being any different.
The fact that coach KG indicated after the fight pick that I’m a cerebral fighter describes me dead on! Now that took me by surprise that he was able to form an opinion in a matter of a week of coaching me, but it shows his Fight IQ level.
The week leading up to the fight I most definitely felt physically prepared. Also having a sports psychologist back home mentally preparing me before I left for Las Vegas helped for visualizations of the fight.
So I’ve already positioned myself being in the fight before it even happened. And I’m ready.
