Q. What has your training been like ahead of the fight?
I came to America to train back in February. I was supposed to have my fight right then in March 2019. However, I got injured, so I've been training in America for half-a-year, as a result, I've prepared very well to compete.
Q. What do you think of your opponent, Jonathan Martinez?
Jonathan Martinez is a true MMA fighter with an all-round technique. He is good at striking, boxing, good at kicking, good at takedowns, and good at Jiu-Jutsu. But I think I am better than him and I will be giving my best in the fight. From the lessons of my last fight, I will not try to rush in the beginning and I will follow my Coach's strategy to figure out how to approach the fight. I will try to approach the fight in a different way and see what I can figure out.
Q. You damaged your left hand in your last fight. Is that something to worry about at the moment?
There's no need to worry as my health, my finger and fitness is 100% now.
Q. Outside of fighting, what are your hobbies?
Besides fighting, my hobbies are listening to music, eating and sleeping.
