  1. Awesome article! I went through the same thing a few years ago. I do still get the itch to fight occasionally, but unlike before there’s no self-judgment behind it. Just a desire to compete and feel the adrenaline rush of stepping in the ring or cage again…with an acceptance of the fact that my life is very different now than it was at 25. Thanks.

      Thanks so much for the response man! That itch is in me a well and, like you, that part of my life has passed me by, especially since the sport has evolved at unbelievable speeds. I’d love to hear more about your training/fighting days.
