“I was able to disconnect. Once I get my breath, I can allow my higher self to take over, and I don’t have any remembrance of being in the fight. It happened. I was just in the moment. I wasn’t trying to think.”
During the footage of Sean actually watching the fight back, he seems incredibly calm. The champ shakes his head on multiple occasions and smiles, almost struggling to believe that his dream has finally become reality.
“That’s crazy that it was a couple of hours ago.”
