Mr. Hasegawa, who is a president of Kobudo, goes to watch the UFC. "Do you go to watch the UFC?" I asked. He said, "Do you want to come with me?" Absolutely no! Why? Because I'm definitely interested in fighting there when I watch the UFC live.
I still have many things I want to do in Japan, and also I promised to be a champion in Japan with my teammates and my fans. No matter how many people misunderstand that the US is the best, I think American way is not always the best. I'm sure Japanese MMA will be the best event again because we have Yarennnoka Staff.
Anyway, I went to Sengoku to support Kitaoka. I was impressed to see his strength. In the event, I saw a champion belt displayed. A security guard warned me not to touch when I came close and tried to take a close look.
I heard Jake Shields told I didn't want to fight him and was running away from him. Who do you think you are? Don't act like a lord. I don't say anything if you are the best fighter, but you are not in a level you can talk about other fighters. I have never run away. I haven't even offered a fight with you! I would be happy to fight anywhere when I'm offered. Honestly, I like him because he is good. I evaluate him higher than anyone else in Japan. I have a confidence to defeat him by my funky submission.
I answer questions from my fans.
- Jake Shields said you had no warrior spirit(Bushido spilit in Japanese). What do you think about what he said?
I absolutely have no Bushido spilit for sure, because I'm a child of today.
- You are skinny. How much is your body fat?
I don't know, but I'm definitely skinny but muscular. I heard a muscular guy tends to be nervous easily.
- Who is your type?
Saki Aibu for now.
