SHOCKWAVE 2004 INTERVIEW
Pride Fighting Championships:
How much will you weigh for this fight?
Your overall MMA record is 12-2, correct?
Last year, you beat Lee Murray and Jeremy Horn. Were those your last 2 fights?
Yes, that's right.
Were those your only fights?
No, I fought 3 times. I fought in Conquista Fight in Brazil in March.
Was your opponent Brazilian, too?
How do you feel being back in PRIDE?
I'm happy but I think you'll see how I feel when I get in the ring.
You were with Chute Boxe but now you are with Muay Thai Dream Team. What changes are we going to see in you now that you represent another team?
I've kept repeating mistakes but I think that I've improved now that I've changed team. I'm more of a complete fighter now.
Have you seen Chonan fight?
I watched his tape against Carlos Newton but a fight is a fight. I will fight as seriously as I always do.
What's your New Year's resolution?
I want to be PRIDE Lightweight Champion and train hard. I also want to make lots of friends and be modest.
