Rahshun Ball: Combat for me is a very spiritual thing

Rahshun Ball will return to mixed martial arts competition tomorrow night for the first time since 2013 when he meets Zack Hicks in the main event of Valor Fights 34 in Tennessee.

Ball (1-0) won his pro debut against Thomas Campbell at XFC 22 by unanimous decision and in a conversation with The MMA Report recently, he talked about how he has been working on his game since that fight. Along with discussing that, he explained how fighting is a spiritual thing for him.

“Combat for me is a very spiritual thing,” Ball told The MMA Report. “I believe with the concentration of ones will, you can accomplish every single thing you put your mind too. Essentially, I am not even fighting against Zack. Zack just happens to be the obstacle in the way. Essentially, I am fighting myself and beating myself. I find it the more challenging it becomes, the better it is because it pulls out the best inside a person.”
