Best way to get in your opponentshead.

I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. This a theory I kinda came across while watching UFC 73.

When a fighters is in his opponents head he has an advantage no doubt. It shakes the confidence and make him more careful and less confidant to take "knock out possibility risk". Now here is my theory on the best way for a fighter to get into his next opponents head, without even knowing how your next opponent will be. Its simple, never take a fighter lightly, seems simple, but who ever he is fighting, knock him out hard, choke him out dry! Trash talk will get ratings and that is it. Knowing that you are fighting a guy who knock out a top fighter in 30 seconds his last fight will shake your confidence. Here are some example.

When Travis Lutter fought Anderson Silva, while he was walking to the cage, you could see it in his eyes, and I'm sure in the back of his head he was thinking "I'm fighting a guy who broke Rich Franklin's nose and took no damage in that fight"

In the upcoming Couture VS Gonzaga. Don't you think Gonzaga is thinking "Man he took that belt away from Tim Sylvia and made it look easy" but at the same time I'm sure Randy is thinking "Holly Sh*t he knocked out Cro Cop"

If a fighters is fighting someone who always win by decision and is not known to knock out or injure his opponents, that fighters confidence is at an all time high.

So there you go, I had it better explained in my head a few days ago, but waited too long and lost some of my other arguments I had.

What do you think?

grapplegod has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Your first point is kinda obvious of course dominating opponents is going to put a fighter in future challengers heads. But as far as the Couture/Gonzaga comparison not even close, Couture beat a guy most considered overrated at best Gonzaga KTFO a guy most expected to dominate the division with his own signature. That being said I still don't think Gonzaga will be in Randy's head he's too mentally tough.

Best way to get into the other guy's head is to sleep with his wife or girlfriend. It never fails.
