"It was a game changer for me" - Liam Anderson, Professional MMA Fighter, on his work with a sport psychologist.

I am always in awe of athletes stepping up and talking about their work on their mental game and sharing experiences with sport and performance psychology. Especially when it can still be stigmatized in many domains, including combat sports. Many times, we hear from veteran or established athletes so it was even more special to have this appearance by an up and coming pro MMA fighter from Rochester, NY, Liam Anderson, on the Starched MMA Podcast.

For more from Liam on his mental game for MMA and experiences as a professional, check out The Starched MMA podcast episode with him here, including a shout out to Conner Lorenzo and our strength and conditioning program at UR Medicine Fitness Science. https://youtu.be/kp8CRC_n0H8?si=0F-RWKQgEqKuODtb
