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.
Did you have any problems with your shoulder this time?
I know from training that most guys would give up when you twist it that far. I guess he's got the warrior spirit. 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. I don't know if he felt he was in danger or if he knows pro-wrestling moves but I couldn't get it on him. I wanted to surprise him
Why didn't you say your usual line? (You're already dead)
