How do you feel, now that your fight in RIZIN is official?
– I feel amazing. Training started long ago for this fight. I was ready to fight 3 weeks ago. Now I have more time to be even more dangerous.
What do you think about your opponent Amir?
– He is a fraud. No tough fights except for Mirko Cro Cop. I will expose him.
What started the beef between Amir on social media?
– What I stated above. I hate seeing fraudulent Fugazi get these opportunities they don’t deserve. I will come to Japan and claim what is rightfully mine.
How do you think this fight is going to be?
– I will brutally expose the fraud that is Amir
Please tell the Japanese fans about yourself.
– Imagine if Paul Bunyan, The Juggernaut and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira had a baby. You’d have me.
