The Fighter’s Mind

I wrote, “I’ve always wanted to fight Hashi.”

It’s not true.

I’ve always wanted to beat Hashi. BEAT HASHI.

I gotta get it straight.

When I was in the US for Christmas and New Years, I got Sam Sheridan’s book (I’m jealous he got published, but he is such a good writer). I lugged the hard-cover home with me, and now I’m reading it. It was so cool to read about my former instructor Mark Dellagrotte. Sam interviews so many fighters. I’ve already written down a lot of great quotes and I’m taping them to my walls.
