Pride: How do you feel about fighting another fighter from Brazil? This is the first time in PRIDE in 3 years.

Pride: Any thoughts on being in Japan for the first time in PRIDE?
Azeredo: It's an honor for me to be here, fighting in Japan. I think I will be able to do well.
Pride: You seem very laid-back and confident. I read that Wanderlei Silva wants you to fight Takanori Gomi. How do you feel about words like that coming from Wanderlei?
Azeredo: Yes, it's an inspiration for me. I want to have good fights in Japan like Wanderlei.
Pride: You are fighting Luis Buscape, who has done well in PRIDE. A lot of people think that he might fight Takanori Gomi. Do you feel a little more motivation knowing that the winner of this fight might be able to fight Gomi?
