PRE-PRIDE 25 INTERVIEWS
Pride Fighting Championships:
Why are you in Japan?
I'm her to be Anderson's second and to see who my next opponent will be.
You had surgery on your knee, right?
I had surgery in December of last year. It's almost healed now.
What was wrong with your knee?
I damaged a ligament in the back of my knee when I fought Kanehara in PRIDE 23.
When will you be able to fight again?
Probably around August.
Will it be a title match?
I imagine so.
Whoever wins the match between Kevin Randleman and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson may be the next challenger for your Middleweight Championship. Who do you think will win?
I think whoever wins will probably fight me. I think Randleman will win. Rather, I want him to win. I think we would have a better fight.
Who do you think will win between Sakuraba and Schembri?
I think Sakuraba will win. Sakuraba has better standing skills.
