Honestly, the thing that makes me the most nervous is the unknown.

Its those questions. Did I train hard enough? Did my opponent train harder? Did he notice something about me that I didn't? Is he really as good as he is in my head? Am I as good as I am in my head?

Those questions that are never answered until the first 5 minutes are the things that make me the most nervous.

In my first amateur kickboxing fight, I was worried i'd get knocked out. I was worried i'd get tired and just get my ass kicked.

When I compete in grappling events, the main thing that makes me nervous is if the guy is a former wrestler.

If you train well, come in well conditioned and hydrated it will give you some peace of mind. But you'll always be nervous, and in my experience there is a point where you get comfortable and that fear and anxiety goes away and its a rush of euphoria.
