I was watching in the changing room and I thought than any other fighter would have given up in the first 2 minutes. I was amazed that he was able to overcome that. It inspired me and I became determined at that moment.
This tournament is being held in Japan and I think that's what the fans want. 3 (Japanese) fighters have gone on to the Second Round and I think that shows the power of the Japanese. Japanese are strong.
Denis Kang mentioned you name earlier, saying that you and he would probably be a good match.
