Eddie Wineland enters the Octagon at UFC 165 to fight one of the UFC's marquee talents, Renan Barao.

While that may appear to be a daunting task for most, Wineland isn't particularly concerned with it. Eddie told Ultimate Insider that in his opinion, the challenges that his little brother, Cory, a severe burn victim, faces on a day to day basis are far greater than something as simple as a fight.

In fact, Wineland takes his brothers tribulations as motivation into the Octagon and training.

"When I'm in there training and I'm hurtin' and my legs are tired, I'm tired...it ain't nothing compared to what he's been through."

Live UFC 165 coverage begins Saturday, September 21 at 8/5pm ET/PT on FOX Sports 1, followed by the main card on PPV.
