Monson talked about his childhood in Germany, his loss to Fedor Emelianenko, how to beat Daniel Cormier, going to jail for political activism and his future plans, which also include a potential UFC return.
"If I go to the UFC, it will be at 205. I'm really happy with M-1, because they're treating me very well and I have a lot of fans in Russia. I'm happy where I'm at right now, but being on the big stage is always a goal."
Known for his anarchist views and affiliations, Monson had to serve three months in jail for spray painting the anarchy symbol onto a building.
"I don't have any regrets. I almost felt guilty when I was protesting and I've never been arrested before. But now I have."
