Lifetime natural Brandon Flihan says, "I get questioned daily on if I'm nervous. I get DM's asking if I'm aware of the competition, 'so and so is looking good this year you may get beat!'. I've never once looked ahead and searched for my competition before a show. It won't change the outcome of how I'm going to portray my physique that day. I don't do this for anyone but myself. I train because I love it. Competing is just extra for me. Win, lose, draw... I'm still going to get up the next day and be working my ass off in the gym. But don't get it twisted, I'm entering the competition ready for war!"
