The importance of music to Erosa’s career cannot be understated. He gave UFC Ultimate Sound an example of this by telling us about his relationship with the painful, necessary evil that is running. He talks about how he used to dislike it, but now, he’s grown to like running based solely on the fact that he gets to put on his favorite playlists and mentally get lost in it. On one occasion, he was at the end of a run and put on one of his favorite songs, and the motivation enabled him to finish stronger than when he started when he thought he had no more energy left.
Leading up to competition, Erosa finds that country music helps keep him focused because it helps keep in perspective of who and what he fights for. Country music has to do with family and your significant other, and it’s the thought of Erosa’s wife that gives him all the motivation needed to stay focused on the task at hand.
Put Erosa’s mixes in your headphones and let them empower you the same way it empowers him. From the daily struggles of everyday life to the rigors of the hard training session in the gym. You’ll have everything you need to keep persistent and get to the end goal.
