From Fighters Only:
I'm preparing well and I will not have problems adapting to the octagon. Mr. Florian is a fighter with good skills, one of the best of its kind in the UFC. It is a good opponent for a good start. I make a good fight for the public and start a successful outcome."
"Today, all MMA practitioners know how to fight a little of everything. I know he is a dangerous fighter with a good game on the floor... [I will win] By knockout in the 1st round!"
"Since I entered the UFC, always made clear that the belt is my goal. I will get this title for the Japanese, its what we all want... [BJ Penn] is a tremendous fighter. But I know my ability and I know I'm the right person to cause problems him in the UFC. I am patient and will wait for my chance."
The Japanese star is putting it out there early for Kenny Florian. What say you?
