    Not personally, but I've been at events where this stuff has happened - in some cases it's made a difference and in others it hasn't. As said above, it depends WHO the other guy has fought.

    Nerves are the biggest factor - you will likely be more nervous than him, but not necessarily.

    Really it's up to you how much of a difference it makes.

    my second fight i was against a guy whos dad runs a gym, and who has been training since he was a kid. they announced his record as 1-0 but a guy i know says he has seen him in boxing and knockdown karate matches since he was a kid. Not that I could really prepare or anything since I didn't know the gyus name until the weigh in the night before and even then i wasnt actually aware of who he was.

    anyway he beat my ass like a drum in most areas- cardio, inside boxing, kicking, timing, speed, reactions... I am however a dab hand at the old clinching game and managed to knee the **** out of him enough to get a draw. so i guess my advice is get good at something a lot of fighters (generally the ones who will get to a certain point and no further) consider to be "gay" and then gay their asses to death

    Alex is a signature machine.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    So your advice, if I understand you correctly, is to gay this guy's ass to death? Sounds kinda suspect lol. Thanks for the advice though, I THINK that I know what you mean.

    Think of it this way man.
    This worked for me when I was nervous for my first mma fight.
    Forget his record and forget who the hell he is.
    Just remember when your face to face with that guy, he is the reason why you've been starving and training yourself to death for however long you've been training for the fight.
    And your goal is to make him suffer as much as you did.
    It helped me brush off the shakes when the bell rung.

    His training is what matters, and you dont see that in the numbers.

    If it makes you feel any better i've had like 11 fights and I still get just as scared as the first time.

    I am. Fighting scares the **** out of me.

    In fact, i would probably be completely terrified of you while beating your ass.
