What's actually going through your head at that moment in time? Are you focusing more on trying to intimidate your oppponant or focusing your energy to try not to accidentally show any sign of weakness? I'd guess it varies from fighter to fighter and fight to fight but I love the psychological aspect of the fight game and was just curious to hear about any thoughts that went though your head during those 5-10 seconds or so. Thanks in advance for any replies!

"I wish you good luck but I don't want you to rely on luck" ---------- I want to say a massive thank you to @TARTARA for creating my AV!
