Of course, no opponent is easy. Pride fighters are strong and tough. Kharitonov was also strong and tough. I don't have any problem with the decision. This is a joke but I may have to fight Mirko eventually. Before that, though, I'm glad I can leave Mirko up to Sergei now.
Not at all. We divided the training time. We trained twice a day but we trained both for him and for me, so it wasn't like I wasn't able to train for myself. Please let me say one last thing. I would really like to fight on New Year's Eve. I don't care who my opponent is, I just want to fight. I will train twice as much as I have until now, so please let me fight. Thank you very much.
