BUSHIDO 5 INTERVIEW
Pride Fighting Championships:
Tell us what you think of the fight.
I feel great because I could win.
What did you think about the fight?
I want to do my best so I can continue for a long time without injury.
Did the fight go as you planned?
Yes. It went just like I thought it would. My first goal was to win and I did that. Then, I wanted to win with the submissions that I train in and that went exactly as planned.
What do you think of your opponent?
I knew that Sakurai was strong. He's a famous fighter in the fighting world so I expected it to be a tough fight but I also trained as hard as I could.
You took several knees during the fight. Did you get any damage?
I did get hit several times but my conditioning was really good so I recovered quickly.
What's your next goal?
I don't know if I can fight in the next Middleweight Grand Prix but I'd like to.
