"It's definitely necessary to lift. If you're not lifting you're missing out on a big aspect of jiu-jitsu."

"Mentally having to deal with [lifting] every single day, where you feel like you're gonna die, where you're red lining every single day, it gets you in a better mental state when preparing for jiu-jitsu in case you do need to go that distance."
