Tural Rahimov: "It's not the load, it's the engine"

"We are ready to fight. There is no universal preparation for this tournament, everything is as usual."

Idman.biz reports that this was said by Tural Rahimov, speaking about the Landmark 7 Tournament.

He will face Kyung Pyo Kim from South Korea for the first time in Rizin's Landmark 7 Tournament, which will be held in Baku. Rahimov drew attention to the fact that his opponent is heavier than him: "But the main thing is not the load, but the "engine". Therefore, the opponent's weight does not matter to me. Many people say that local walls help, but I think the opposite. I want to show myself to the fans in another country. But there is more psychological pressure in Azerbaijan, because my relatives will watch me live, not on television."

Rahimov said that he will fight to win: "For me, 3 or 1 round does not matter. The main thing is that they raise my hand in the end. As for how I got into the combat sports, I first did judo and then karate. "Because I am hyperactive, my parents sent me to judo to spend my energy there."

It should be noted that the tournament to be held at the National Gymnastics Arena will take place on November 4.
