I improved my condition slowly until I was in top shape. I wasn't able to take it easy for the Mirko fight. You might want more time but when the fight's decided, you've got to do it. It's a tough world.

I put a toehold on him but he didn't tap, so I was twisting it like it would kill him. I tried to put on the nagata lock but he just wouldn't let me. I thought that he didn't know it.
