Any concerns about this?
– I already had intervals of several months, but I see no problem with that. If you exercise, then this is not a problem. There are examples when the guys do not fight for two years, go out and have great fights. It is all in the head.
– Realized that you are one step away from a dream?
– Yes, I am slowly realizing that the contract has been signed, that the battle has already been announced. Now we hope that all participants will be able to get to the venue of the tournament.
“You will fight on the island.” Do not worry that there will not be the necessary infrastructure?
“There is absolutely everything on this island.” There were racing “Formula 1”. Everything will be at the highest level, like everything that takes place in the Emirates. But we don’t really need anything, the main thing is that there is where to exercise. We can train even on the street.
– Performing without spectators is a problem?
– While I can’t say what the sensations are from this, I’ll tell you after the fight. I see my goal – I see my goal, and I do not want to think about anything else. It will be a full room or empty – it does not matter.
– Sterling has already been named the next contender for the title. Not upset that the battle will be with Aldo, and not with him?
– For me, Aldo is more dangerous in all components than Sterling or any other challenger. I agreed to this fight without hesitation. This is a great challenge, an opportunity to declare oneself. Fighting with Aldo is one of the highest steps.
– In 2016, you got to the UFC tournament because Aldo gave you tickets for the tournament. We can say that it was he who infected you with the UFC.
– I would not say that it was he who infected me with the UFC. This is my job. My goal was to take the ACB belt and defend it because I was already thinking about the UFC. It is clear that when you trained with a person, you only have a positive attitude towards him. But, again, it was not I who came to his weight, not I came to take his bread, it is he who comes to me. I would say that this fight is a purely sporting interest. After him, we shake hands, everything will be fine.
“Do you think Cejudo will be back yet?”
– He has already left, everything is clear, the belt is vacant. I would agree to fight with him. Probably, this fight could be called fundamental. I think that if he returned, I would have fought with him if he did not run away from me again.
