Post-PRIDE Open Weight Grand Prix 2006 Second Round Interviews with Wanderlei Silva and Kazuyuki Fujita

Wanderlei Silva

Pride Fighting Championships: What did you think of the fight?

Silva: He was a tough opponent. It was a good fight and I'm happy that I won. He lost but he is an extremely good fighter. I think he could have good fights with Shogun and Ninja, too.

Pride: Nogueira has asked for you next as an opponent. What do you think about that? Is there anyone that you would like to fight?

Silva: In regards to the Grand Prix, anyone would be fine. I was injured and I had little time to prepare for this fight but I will be in my best condition for the Final Round. I want to give a good fight in front of everyone.

Pride: What did you think of the weight difference?

Silva: I think it's important to always challenge myself. Fighting spirit is important and by overcoming those challenges, I believe I will grow. So, I thought the weight difference was a good thing, not a problem. I just want to challenge myself. I believe the fans also want to watch good fights and be happy, and I want to show them good fights.

Evangelista Cyborg

Pride Fighting Championships: What did you think of your fight?

Cyborg: I feel very sorry. I'm a strong fight and I want to give better fights.

Kazuyuki Fujita

Pride Fighting Championships: Could you feel a difference in strength?

Fujita: It was a complete loss. That's all I can say. You have to win or It was a complete loss. This isn't the end for me, though. Thank you.
