Ryan Gracie was hard at work with Renzo and Daniel Gracie, as they all began final preparations for their upcoming matches. Ryan, full of confidence, took a moment out of his intense training regime to respond to Kazuhiro Hamanaka's comments that "all the Japanese fighters will win."

"I've gotten much, much stronger since the last time I climbed into the PRIDE ring. Hamanaka? Of course, he's a good fighter but...he's not nearly good enough to say who's going to win."

Ryan looks more intense than ever and plans on showing everyone the results of his self-imposed hard training when he fights in BUSHIDO.

Will Team Japan be prepared?
