Yes meditation or mental preparation helps a lot in martial arts. It's a popular saying that fights are won in the mind and heart before the actual fighting begins.

If one prepares himself in the mind to win a fight, the body adapts to such preparation and maximize it effectively. But when one feels weak in the mind, this makes the body to give up with ease when under pressure.
I hear fighters talking about visualization all the time. I guess there's something to it.
