He also comments on his fight with Gegard Mousasi…
- Mark Munoz recently spoke about seeking the help of a sports psychologist. Here are the highlights…
On Seeing a Sports Psychologist: The reason why I sought it out was because every time I lost a fight, I wasn't mentally prepared, and I wasn't thinking right. He's given me cues to remind me of who I am and what I do best."
On Changing How He Thinks: "If you were to ask somebody what it takes to be a champion, they're going to say desire, diligence, heart, character," Munoz said. "They're going to say all these attributes that begin with the mind. You do have to do the physical things, but you've got to do the mental (training), as well. "(Baum) changed my way of thinking about training, he's changed the way I think about fighting, and he's opened doors. He's able to teach an old dog new tricks."
On Saturday's Fight With Mousasi: "I understand what I'm best at. I'm confident I'll be able to go in there and do what I need to do to be victorious."
