Georges St.-Pierre Is Now Beginning His Full-Time MMA Training

Georges St.-Pierre Is Now Beginning His Full-Time MMA TrainingPeople are now eagerly setting their eyes on Georges St-Pierre, as he fights for welterweight championship against Carlos Condit at UFC 154. The event is said to happen later this year at Montreal. Even though this is still on the process of negotiations, GSP is determined that there is going to be fight. He is now back in Montreal to do complete training. “Already tried a few tricks—right knee is super strong,” as appeared in his Facebook status last June 27, Wednesday.

Just late last 2011, GSP went for a surgery of his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which is considered a major human knee ligament. This was injured during his training and he went for an extensive process of rehabilitation to come back and fight in UFC. His announcement of comeback in November has thrilled many fans but the most significant would be Dana White, the UFC president. White has declared after GSP’s injury that they have fallen short of the main events lately. This has affected the pay-per-views. She also confirmed that November is GSP’s target for returning to UFC fights. GSP’s status post on Facebook really helped encourage the odds.

The November match of GSP versus Condit will enhance the presence of UFC toward the year’s end. This will also serve as the decision maker for several welterweight division contenders. Some of the contenders were Martin Kampmann, Johny Hendricks, and Jake Ellenberger. Even if GSP has already confirmed the next fight with Condit, Kampmann and Ellenberger still played nicely on the TUF Finale that made it to the headlines. Kampmann is now the leading contender next to Condit as he defeated Ellenberger.

As GSP’s return and match with Condit happens, MMA fighters’ Hendricks and Kampmann will settle everything under the supporting match. The winner will be the next contender for welterweight championship. This will probably straighten the odds for UFC and its fighters but be prepared for more actions once everything changes.

Mind Over Matter: De-Stressing for a Better MMA Concentration

Mind Over MatterMost MMA athletes do not understand the importance of coming into a fight without any tension, depression, or any emotional problem. MMA athletes just quit doing their career since they can’t handle too much stress. Nonetheless, this should not be the case. An intense attitude is only reserved while in the fight but during tough times of life, the right insight should matter the most. Most MMA athletes enter this field without even knowing that they are being too competitive on their craft. It is good to have this attitude but not most of the time. The topmost priority is preparing you mentally and emotionally besides physical preparations.

The Issues Behind the Intense Attitude

In order to be a successful MMA athlete, controlling emotional setbacks should be executed. Famous MMA athletes are actually soft spoken and seem more approachable such as Benson Henderson, Jon Jones, and Junior dos Santos. They’ve made it to the MMA and seemed to be chilled always than those who appear unhappy and tense. If you will observe closely, athletes who seem to be “at peace” are very successful in the path they’ve chosen.

How to Overcome and Improve Emotional Control

Those who are tense and unhappy become more pessimistic in each challenge they fight. In having this attitude, you will definitely have a long time fighting this challenge rather than actually overcoming it. There are basic ways to overcome this intense nature. One thing to do is relax by closing your eyes. Straighten your legs and have your closed right fist in front. Keep the lower body still then rotate clockwise. Open your eyes then do the same with a smiling face. Think of something that is happy and good.

Sometimes, it’s common sense to let out your negative feelings. Just always release these feelings so that it won’t pile up and bring unnecessary actions on your part.
