You can find out the hard way that you're in the wrong sport. Like, a lot of these guys, what's the reason that you fight? You have to ask them. If you ask the Diaz Brothers, what they do and what they're good at? Fight. They love to fight. That's what they do. That's who they are. You'll find out really quick if you're a fighter or not against them. Just because you fight in the UFC, that doesn't mean you're a fighter.
Fighters, real fighters, they know they have a chance no matter what, the whole fight, and they love that. They don't give a fuck. They don't care what's happening. They know in that last minute, that last round, they've still got a chance and they don't care what the other guy thinks, because they know the other guy wants to beat them too. That's a fighter. But a lot of these guys aren't like that at all. A lot of these guys, they just want to have people recognize them in the streets. That's not a fighter. You're not a fighter. ‘I just want to fight because I want to have a good enough career to open up a gym.' No. That's a small business owner. You want to be a small business owner. You don't want to be a fighter. You want to work for yourself. Good for you. I don't like coaching those guys, but I love to fight those guys because I know if I hit that guy, he's going to hurt. And when he hurts, he's going to change.
But Nate, the whole time, he kept coming forward. He lost the fight. I knew I won the fight. There was like 30 seconds left, and he still... kept... coming for me. And I respect that the most, because if I would've given him the opportunity, he would've beaten the shit out of me.

Did we stop natural selection by keeping everyone alive? Or is it part of evolution? Is it meant for us to do this?
“Meant for us to do” is kind of a loaded term. Evolution and natural selection don’t really have an endgoal. What we’re “meant” to do, from an evolutionary perspective, is make more of us. Nothing more, nothing less. If keeping everyone alive makes more of us, then that’s what we’re meant to do. If we make too many and the environment can’t handle us, we’ll starve until we’re back below our limit.
As for whether nature will get sick of us, that’s assigning some kind of agency to nature that doesn’t really exist. Nature doesn’t “get sick” of species. Things either adapt and survive or they die out. Nature doesn’t care how they do it. There are several forces that oppose survival, such as changing environments, diseases, lack of resources, etc. Humans are unusual in that we’ve been able to assert a lot of control over many of these opposing forces. We can eradicate diseases. We can farm, which allows more people to live on less resources. We can create tools to allow us to survive in harsh environments. We can pass exact knowledge down to future generations. Even though we do things that are detrimental to our environment, we can predict the changes and create a means to survive the new environment. Every species up to this point has relied on genetic mutation to adapt. Humans, on the other hand, rely on engineering, which provides solutions in months and years rather than generations. I hate to sound like I’m making more of humanity than it deserves, but from an evolutionary perspective, we really are a tough species to beat.
