Yea I feel confident in my fighting abilities, but whatever im in a situation at a party or something where im about to fight someone I get a little nervous inside. I start to feel like a little bit of butterflies, is this still normal, why do I get this?
But if I know im about to box someone in sparring, I dont get nervous at all, but for some reason in fist fights with people I never seen before I start to get nervous before.

sparring is a controlled fight. if the other guy hurts you, he will stop, and your subconscious knows this, so you know you dont have to run
should a stranger fight you in an uncontrolled environment, the worst that could happen would be death, and your subconscious knows this as well, so you feel some butterfliesBe.

If you didn't get that feeling, I'd say something was wrong with you.
As someone else said, it's the flight or fight mechanism kicking in. The adrenalin and increased vigilance are what make you feel all tingly and excited.In 1945, Adolf Hilter died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied, "I am responsible for the massacre of millions" Satan said, "well done, sit to the right of my throne." In 1953, Joseph Stalin died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied "I killed millions to stay in power" Satan said "good, sit to my left" 2010, Ronnie James Dio died and went to Hell, Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" Dio replied, "Bitch, get the fuk off my throne!"
