BTG 56 - Heavy Lies the Crown

BTG 56 - Heavy Lies the Crown

September 2, 2021

Rob and Dave chime in on the Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley fight, but dig deeper into how a once stone-cold killer like Woodley has become a shell of his former self. They speak about possible factors to the fall from grace many champions have after losing a title, particularly when it is in dramatic fashion - from social pressures, fear of severe bodily harm, and loss of motivation.

They also get into some higher level coaching tactics, the soundness of the karate blitz, the proper balance of the coach/athlete relationship, and that the "negative" emotions of fear and anger are actually good things.
