TOTAL ELIMINATION 2004 PRE-FIGHT INTERVIEWS
Pride Fighting Championships:
Is your grand game still to stand up as fast as you can?
Yep. It doesn't change. This is the road to the Championship. I have to win and move on.
What do you think is your biggest strength against Kharitonov?
My size, my power, my punches, my knees, everything.
What do you think you have to worry most about?
I don't know. I watched a couple of tapes but I didn't see anything.
Have you changed your training?
More ground training because I had more time to train this time.
Do you use any training music?
I don't need music to get me going.
What is the best movie that you've seen lately?
I hate that question. I saw a movie on the airplane but I don't remember.
You've changed your hair. Is that permanent or just for this fight?
Just for this fight.
Did you see The Last Samurai?
I saw it. It was boring. Kill Bill was nice.
How would you prefer to win?
I go for a KO, a clean victory.
