TOTAL ELIMINATION 2004 PRE-FIGHT INTERVIEWS
Pride Fighting Championships:
What do you think of Randleman after his last performance?
I was impressed by his speed. I'm looking forward to fighting him.
Is there anything that you feel you need to improve, as a fighter?
My trainer knows better than me about what I need.
Last time, Kevin Randleman won by striking and you arm barred Mark Coleman with a beautiful arm bar. What do you think Kevin will do against you?
I cannot predict what will happen. I will just have to wait and see.
Would you rather stand with Kevin or fight on the ground?
Of course, I'd like to fight with him standing up but I can fight with him on the ground, too.
You're can both punch hard and you are both good wrestlers. It's going to be a tough fight.
I think so, too.
What exactly happened with your car accident and did you suffer any injuries?
After training, I was driving home with a friend. We were at an intersection and another car was coming. That car was supposed to yield to me but he didn't and he hit us.
Was there a lot of damage?
The car was damaged but no one was hurt.
How's your baby?
Kevin Randleman's father recently died.
I read it on the Internet. It's very unfortunate.
Has anything changed since last time?
Nothing changed but I trained harder than before.
