People have built me up to be untouchable, unbeatable, invincible, and I’m not that. I am a man, and I am a winner, but that can change in a second.
Because I’m training so much, I always have a lot of energy. Once I’ve finished training, I come home and have some down time, and then I realise it’s 12:30 A.M. and I should have been in bed 2 hours ago. That can get annoying.

Prayer is a form of meditation, isn’t it? It’s laws of attraction: whatever you put out into the universe is what it receives. It’s just kind of putting your thoughts out into the universe.
