Adrian Yanez Is Searching For More

“Initially, it was nerve wracking,” said Yanez. “So I had to go back and start film studying myself and see where I needed to be better. But that also lit a fire underneath my butt and honestly made me get tighter. I started working on a lot more things just on me, on my level. And I used to do this all the time. I used to go back and watch my own fights and just film study and break myself down. How would I beat me? What would I do if I was the other guy? I used to do that religiously. And again, it goes back to getting comfortable. I got way too comfortable. So once I got back to it and started watching myself and watching my fights, it was one of those things where I was nervous, but once I started implementing it into what I do in training, I was like, oh, okay, well, it doesn’t make me nervous anymore. And I started watching the other guys fighting. Okay, now I know what my tool set can beat that guy, that guy, that guy. So it was nerve wracking until I actually started working on it and I was like, oh, man, this is going to be fun.”
