Daniel Gracie & Daisuke Nakamura

Pride Fighting Championships: What do you think of your fight?
Shinsuke Nakamura: I got a little too excited. I've still got a way to go. I received a lot of kicks to my face from below
Pride: What will you do next?
Nakamura: Well, I've screwed this up right from the start. I just didn't have what it takes this time. I'll have to keep working on it.
Pride: Will you do Vale Tudo or pro-wrestling?
Nakamura: I'll fight in either.
Pride: Why do you think you lost?
Nakamura: I should have gone forward more. I'm going to practice more and then try again.
Daniel Gracie: My feeling right now is that I've done my job. Nakamura is a strong, fast fighter. I think I also lacked experience when I began Vale Tudo so if he practices more he will become stronger. He's originally a wrestler but he came out defensive. I think he needs a little more experience in ground fighting.
