I was talking to some guys after a workout last night and I heard the good old saying, "I fight for money". As I think back over the my years as a fighter (kickboxing, boxing, muay thai, Shidokan, etc.), I can say that I never fought for money. I enjoyed fighting. The competition, the thrill, the adrenaline, and the challenge is what motivated me. If you fight for money, you will never be a champion. Champions will do their sport no matter what. They love to fight and train for the sake of training.
