"I think (Tatsuya Kawajiri) wants to take it to the ground. But I'm not an easy guy to hold down and neither is he. I think we might end up on our feet a lot more and he's also willing to bang so it should be a good fight either way.

"I think I'm a little bit better than him everywhere and it's going to come down to who wants it more and who's in better shape. But trust me, it makes for a really great match-up and it's definitely no walk in the park."
