The extraordinary fighter of UFC, Michael chandlerHe wants to return to the path of victories soon. After losing the title shot to Charles Oliveira, he feels he must learn from the mistakes he made in order to get out of the pot he entered. Although no one doubts his talent, that fall took him out for the moment from those who aspire to remove the belt from the Brazilian.
In dialogue with MMA Fighting, Chandler He said: ‘I made some mistakes on the day I had my first loss. It really turned into a losing streak. If you hide from losses, if you try to protect yourself from them or protect yourself from talking about them, they become self-fulfilling prophecies of future losses and future circumstances of self-criticism. I realized very quickly after I had that first loss to Eddie Alvarez in 2013. “
I was not prepared to lose. He was physically ready but he was not mentally ready to lose. That loss led me to two other losses later, 688 days without winning a fight. I made a couple of mistakes back then. The first, I already mentioned, I hid from the error. I hid from the loss. The media were calling me. The World MMA Awards were calling me, I did not want to be seen, “he said.
Will come back better than before
On the other hand, Michael He commented, ‘I wanted to hide from that. I wanted to be surrounded by my four walls and the comfort of my own home. I forgot how good it was. I forgot how powerful I was and how strong I was and how good I was as an athlete because I let that loss define me. I let that loss become the story that was playing out in my head. That it wasn’t as good as I thought. Honestly, I want to be transparent, this is a therapy for me ».
“The third mistake I made was that I found comfort in sitting down and eating a bowl of ice cream and not exercising and being comfortable with self-pity and blaming other people. I know I made some mistakes in the past and I hid from a loss and wanted to protect myself from it to protect myself. Actually, I was doing the exact opposite, “he concluded. Michael chandler.
