PRE-PRIDE 25 INTERVIEWS
Pride Fighting Championships:
That's good. Have you been learning striking?
Yes, I've been practicing a lot.
How old are you?
What did you learn from your fight with Nogueira?
Striking was very scary but I'm more relaxed now since I fought in K1.
What is your favorite alcohol?
Shochu, a Japanese liquor.
What do you do in your free time?
Watching movies, drinking, having parties with single females.
That's a good combination. You can start out with the movies then mix the last two. When not thinking about women, what would be your dream submission?
He's a ground-fighting professional so I'd rather wear him down with striking and then go for a submission.
Wearing a gi?
No. Only in the entrance.
Do you use nunchakus?
No. No weapons.
You've drawn the biggest Gracie. Are you going to try to box with Daniel?
I'm comfortable fighting him standing up.
What is your entrance music?
A Beethoven piece.
Have you seen Daniel's fights?
What is his most dangerous weapon?
Jiu-jitsu techniques from the ground.
