FULLY LOADED INTERVIEWS
Pride Fighting Championships:
What do you think about the fight?
Thank you very much.
Do you think your trip to Brazil paid off?
I can't say that everything has 100% sunk in yet but they were in my corner and that helped me mentally.
Did Fujimar (leader of Chute Boxe) say anything to you before the fight?
He told me to kill. (laughing)
What do you think about Shamrock now that you've fought him?
I took a punch and then I tried to fake a tackle but he saw through it. Everyone says he's old but that's not true at all. He's a good fighter.
What did you think when he was walking around after the fight, objecting?
I didn't look at him because there's nothing I could do about it.
How did the KO feel?
His eyes roll back when he fell...I couldn't let him come back, so I kept hitting him.
As far as "Starting Over" goes, was this a perfect one for you?
I wasn't really thinking about that when I was fighting but there are still skills that I have to learn and things I have to do.
Do you have any plans to go to Brazil again?
I haven't decided yet but I want to go.
What was the "jiro" technique you were talking about before the fight? Did you use it this time?
It was a wash. (laughing) I planned on using it but he was strong and I couldn't find the timing.
They will probably want you to fight in New Year's Eve now. How about that?
Let me think about it a little...yes. If they'll have me, I'd be happy to fight.
