PRE-PRIDE 25 INTERVIEWS
Pride Fighting Championships:
Have you done any special training for your fight with Newton?
I haven't done anything special, just training as usual. I just want to fight.
Your entrance always reminds us of Michael Jackson. What will you do this time?
I'm not going to do it this time. I'm only want to focus on winning this time. I hope the fans won't be disappointed.
What do you think of Newton?
He is one of the most complete fighters in PRIDE. He's got great techniques and he can deal with any situation.
How do you plan on winning?
My techniques just come out naturally during the fight. I don't want to think about just one technique. Whatever comes out in the fight, that's what I want to finish him with.
Did Wanderlei Silva give you any advice?
Wanderlei told me to be violent.
What are your plans for after this fight?
I'm going to fight on April 12 in Brazil. It will be a muay thai tournament called "STORM". I'll be in the 85 kilo class.
You're going to fight muay thai?
I want to fight in the K-1 Grand Prix, after I gain some weight. I practiced with Jefferson Tank, the recent winner of the K-1 Brazil tournament and he was no problem at all.
Finally, any message for your fans?
I just want to give a good fight. I fight for the fans, for my team and for my 3 children!
