Thus, Flick He started by saying, “Look, I have 20 professional fights. I have fought with veterans of UFC punching. Thats not all. I’ve only had three fights that were decisive. If the desire is gone, I’m not going to do that to my family, to my coaches, to my training partners, to everyone who sacrifices everything to help me keep going. It’s not there anymore, and it was a hard way to find out, but I’m happy with it. “
How much weight did you gain again after that fight? You can do it? Is it going to exhaust you mentally? Nobody asks those questions. Nobody ever does. I literally had an hour to decide what I wanted to do. And that’s what I did. That Sunday when I got home, I had a good meal with my family. He weighed 148 pounds. That’s 22 pounds in over 48 hours that I put on weight after weighing, and I had 12 days to turn it over and cut it off again, ”he said.
He knows what he wants

I’ve been holding it back and using that to motivate and push myself. I don’t know what I’ve done to my body. No one knows what we do to ourselves, from mental toughness, to training, to cutting weight. I just feel free. I was so happy to wake up this morning at 6:30, instead of 4:30, 5:00 in the morning, to have a cup of coffee, for breakfast.
«My four-year-old daughter woke up, Dad gave her some milk, Dad put on his cartoons. It was great, and then I got to work. I am 30 years old and I did everything I wanted. The desire was not money, it was not fame. By the time they unionize, or when my father and I figure things out, I think it will be too late. I’m not the type who wants to get out of retirement, “he concluded. Jimmy Flick.
