Michael “The Maverick” Chiesa looked to be on a title path back in 2016. He was on a three fight winning streak and had notable victories over fighters like Jim Miller and Beneil Dariush. However, his momentum was completely derailed by a defeat at the hands of his bitter rival Kevin Lee due to a technical submission via a rear-naked choke. He then later lost to Anthony Pettis at UFC 226. Thus, in his last octagon outing for 2018, against Carlos Condit at UFC 232, Chiesa was under a lot of pressure to get back to winning ways. While many fighters tend to buckle under such high pressure, Chiesa looked unfazed and delivered a strong performance to get the finish. He has now revealed how he psyched himself up before facing Condit.

Chiesa moved up to welterweight to face former interim champion Condit. Chiesa who seemed visibly drained due to the extreme weight-cut, looked right at home at 170-pounds. He finished the fight in the second round due to a submission via a kimura.
