Music has the power to change your state of mind. It can pump you up, help you to drown out distractions and get you in the zone. When you apply that concept to the world’s most dangerous and disciplined sport-mixed martial arts, music can be used as a weapon. All combat fighters listen to specific music on their way to the cage so as to invoke the mindset needed to face and overcome imminent danger. Listen to the walkout songs of UFC 267.
