GSP: Inside, I'm scared as hell
"I'm the kind of guy that I'm not afraid to admit that I'm afraid when I go fight," said GSP. "Even though I'm scared and I'm afraid to fail, when I walk to the Octagon, I look like I'm, it's impossible for me to fail and I look very confident, like I'm going to kick ass for sure. But the truth is, deep down inside, I'm scared as hell."
"My mind starts changing and listens to my body. This is a theory called James-Lange theory, and for me, it works very well because I get very anxious before I fight. ...That's my trick. When I walk, I'm scared and that's how I feel, but as I'm walking, the closer I get the more confident I get."
