We've all heard the Road to the Octagon 'I'm afraid of no man' kind of prefight talk. Can anyone ever recall hearing the opposite? I'm hard pressed to come up with one example. There has had to be one fighter in history that has said 'that guy is dangerous and I'd rather not be there with them'. Phone Post 3.0

Nick Diaz vs GSP. GSP was saying, "Do you really think I'm scared of you?" whenever he got mad, and Nick was talking about being scared going into the GSP fight and saying he thinks GSP was lying. It's at the very beginning of this interview: http://youtu.be/zFju2p7wx6A

Waiting for a green name to drop in and make a self confession. I knew an amateur mma fighter who made no qualms about being upset to fight his first legit wrestler. I think he knew he was in over his head and started doubting himself. Phone Post 3.0

I think one or two of Vanderlei's Pride opponents looked pretty nervous. Who can blame 'em?

That reminds- Vitor was TERRIFIED to fight Wanderlei before their match in Brazil. Apparently it was a huge chore to make the match.

In my opinion, it helped him get the legendary victory. He came out so nervous and amped up that he just went apeshit as soon as the fight started. Kind of like a tard in a playground fight.

Didn't GSP say that he is very nervous before every fight? I dont recall him saying that he has specifically feared some fighter, but he says that he has been scared before the fights. Or at least I remember so, I could be wrong though.
