Neil "Beast Mode" Von Flatern on the mental side of fighting



"Probably the most important thing I've learned is that the battle doesn't happen in the ring. The physical part of fighting is easy. Anybody can show up, put in the work and get good. The hard part is the mental side of it.
You only fight somebody else for at most five minutes, once every few months, but you fight yourself every step of the way.
I think life works the same way. We get in our own way a lot of the time."

—Neil "Beast Mode" Von Flatern
