SHOCKWAVE 2004 INTERVIEW
Pride Fighting Championships:
What's your weight for this fight?
How's your eye? Is it 100% healed?
It's 100% cured but if it gets hit, it might open up again.
How long was it before you could start training again?
2 or 3 weeks after. My training has been very smooth.
What is your New Year's resolution?
I don't know. What are you doing?
Maybe drinking less.
Ok. I'll drink more! (laughing)
You obviously know each other very well. Are you changing anything going into this fight or will it be the same Fedor that everyone has come to expect?
I cannot tell you about my plan but I do have a new strategy. It depends on how Nogueira advances, though. Probably my strategy will change depending on how he fights.
Has the injury affected you at all in training and preparation for this fight?
There's no effect from that injury and I've trained as I always do.
