If you dont believe in your own skills and abillities enough to do it naturally how can you be confident in them when it comes down to the actual fight when its just you and him in the octagon?
Ok then to simplify it more say they have the exact same mental make up as well as tin ring talent? Cause personally I would include mental fortitude as part of skill set.
The point kind of being that at some level steroids/peds are going to give you an advantage or someone that isn't using them. While I don't disagree some may use because they are unsure of themselves. I would however venture to say the vast majority of people willing to step into the cage to fight aren't lacking in confidence and are just looking to exploit whatever advantage they can.
