E80 - Don’t call it a comeback, w/ Former MMA Featherweight Champ Damon Jackson

October 1, 2019

10 seconds.

That's how long Damon's last fight was.

He lost.

On national TV.

That setback caused him to lose his spot in a Tournament for $1M.

Yet, he came back home and dusted himself off like the champion he is.

Damon (@DamonTheLeech) Jackson won the LFA Welterweight Title when he beat UFC Legend Leonard Garcia with an undefeated 10-0 record and has now gone 6-3 in his last 9 fights. Each time, he's come back stronger and more experienced that the last competition. The ebbs and flows of the fight game are like the ebbs and flows of the business world, a dynamic and ever changing competitive landscape with high stakes and pressure at every turn.

We dive into the mindset of a fighter, describing the "precision-focus" the mind creates after hearing the bolt lock the cage door shut with a trained assassin on the other side of the cage. The ice-cold nerves you must have in order to compete at the highest level, and embrace your opponent when it's all over as you pick each other up off the mat.
