Yes, it does. Of course I feel pressure to win this time. However, I couldn't fight at my best weight in the previous fights. This time I'll be at 90 kilos, which is my best weight, and I'll able to move around smoothly. I think I've done my training well for this fight.
What is your personal feeling about Alexander Otsuka?
I think this fight will be more exciting because it's hard to imagine how the fight will be when I don't respect my opponent. The reason that I respect Alexander is because he always fights head on. This time I also expect him to come straight out against me. I think I can fight well against this kind of fighter.
Nogueira versus Fedor. Fedor's a soldier and he's been trained to kill on the battlefield. He's got that kind of mentality. Nogueira's an athlete. I'll be curious to see how that fighting spirit will affect a real athlete.
