Thoughts on opponent, Teruto Ishihara? He is a serious opponent with strong punching power. But I don't think he can handle my pressure and pace.

Do you have any heroes? I liked to watch Mike Tyson, Kostya Tszyu and Muhammad Ali fights and I looked up to them.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? UFC is the pinnacle of this sport. For me, it's similar to going to the Olympics. That's why I’m really happy I joined UFC and now I need to showcase myself there.
