Wineland’s source of inspiration

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.”
