George St. Pierre was a guest on FUEL TV this week and discussed some other among, the jitters a fighter may face on his way to the cage for a nationally televised fight.
Check out the complete interview in the video clip below as well:
"I_m the kind of guy that I_m not afraid to admit that I_m afraid when I go fight," said GSP. "Even though I_m scared and I_m afraid to fail, when I walk to the Octagon, I look like I_m, it_s impossible for me to fail and I look very confident, like I_m going to kick ass for sure. But the truth is, deep down inside, I_m scared as hell."
"My mind starts changing and listens to my body. This is a theory called James-Lange theory, and for me, it works very well because I get very anxious before I fight. ...That_s my trick. When I walk, I_m scared and that_s how I feel, but as I_m walking, the closer I get the more confident I get."
