Music has the power to change your state of mind. It is what pumps us up, gets us to focus and gets us in the zone. Take that idea and apply it to the world’s most intense, disciplined sport-mixed martial arts. You can’t enter the cage with your mind in another place. To get to the mindset you need to fight in the cage, certain music must be listened to by a fighter. Listen to the songs that these fighters leveled up with for UFC Fight Night 195 in Las Vegas.
