    Still get nervous before fights

    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.

    it's your "fight or flight" mechanism coming into play, it's totally normal.

    ok good, I just thought it was wierd, when I go against trained fighters who are really good I get barely and nerves...but when I go against some stranger I start to get nerves, and yea 90% of the time they are bigger than me, but that doesnt really play a factor in my head because I am always undersized, and know size doesnt = skill.

    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 butterflies
    Be.

    I only get nervous before fights if it takes too long for the guy to step up... or if there's some kind of tension.

    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!"

    It's completely normal, man. Even the most aggressive professionals talk about their pre-fight jitters.

    If we didn't get nervous it wouldn't be nearly as much fun.
