asked me if I’m interested in it and I accepted the offer immediately.  I
would like to prepare well for the fight and would like to have an
exciting fight.

don’t think this is the last event I work with them.  M-1 Global has a
business plan to hold events starting next year.  M-1 Global is
actually approaching them and asking to support their events.  I
believe M-1 Global will cooperate with former PRIDE employees to create
great events like PRIDE had before in Japan.
 
Q: Why did you choose M-1 Global?
Fedor: M-1
Global is formed by trustworthy staff and we agreed to create the best
MMA event.  I accepted because M-1 Global is going to have an event in
Japan, Russia and the Netherlands as well as in the U.S.
 
Q: Who would you like to fight?
Fedor: I
would like to fight champions in other MMA organization like Randy
Couture, Gabriel Gonzaga and champions of UFC, Cage Rage and IFL etc.
 
Q: What is the definition of the strongest fighter for you?
Fedor: The
strongest fighter should be able to defeat all the opponents, respect
other fighters, understand circumstances and communicate well with
others.
 
Q: Do you think you are the best now?
Fedor: I don’t think I’m the best now but I`m trying to be. 

Q:
Do you have any message to your fans?
Fedor:
I’m happy to have a fight in Japan again.  I train hard to win and please come and see my fight.
