"I feel great, my condition is improving each year and I really trained hard for this (K-1 WORLD GP 2010 FINAL16). This year I want that belt. I will fight everybody to reach that goal. Badr (Hari) was the better one (last year), now it’s my turn."
"(My goals are) to become the (K-1) champion of course. And, to get the DREAM Heavyweight belt. Next year I will fight a few times in Strikeforce again, (Fabricio) Werdum, who beat Fedor (Emelianenko), was injured and Fedor only wanted to fight Werdum, so those match ups are something for next year in MMA in the States.
"I love my fans in Japan. I’m different to Fedor; I did not leave to only fight in the USA. I have Japan as my favorite place. I may make less money at this moment in Japan than in America as the MMA scene is booming there, but I love the fighting spirit from the country and the long history of martial arts in Japan. Japanese fans are the best. I will always keep fighting in Japan."
"Ben Edwards, I will KO you within that period. I will KO you in the first round, so you can see and feel the level of a Golden Glory fighter and the power of The Reem."
