PRE-PRIDE BUSHIDO 3 INTERVIEW
Pride Fighting Championships:
How old are you?
Your opponent is Amoussou, from France. He's been in judo, like you. Who do you think is better in judo?
I've never fought him in judo so I can't say.
Do you know anything about him?
No but if we're going to fight, I'm confident that I will win.
What is your strategy?
I don't really have one.
You trained in judo at the Kodokan Dojo?
No, the Kodogakusha Dojo.
Your nickname Raou comes from one of the characters in Fist Of The North Star, right? What does that name mean?
My brother and my training partners told me before a fight that I should have a nickname. They said I looked like him so that's how I got the name.
What technique do you think you can win the fight with?
It depends on how the fight plays out. Regardless, I'll be aggressive and attack first.
What's your favorite finishing technique?
