I feel really great. Happy New Year. I wasn't really prepared this time because I got the offer right before the fight. That's why it took so long. My condition is good, though. I've been away from the ring in America on Christmas vacation. But, my conditioning was good enough to go 5 rounds. I think PRIDE rules are better for me, where I can body-slam and do power-bombs. I can punch and kick under K-1 rules but PRIDE is better. I want to beat (Wanderlei) Silva under PRIDE rules and be the top Middleweight.
