"We have been preparing for this tournament for three months now. I just need to lose weight and will be ready tomorrow."
Idman.biz reports that this was said by Vugar Karamov at the press conference today regarding the Landmark 7 MMA tournament of Japan's Rizin Federation, which will be held on November 4 at the National Gymnastics Arena.
He evaluated the upcoming fight with Chihiro Suzuki, representative of Japan. Karimov said that he believe himself at the meeting: "Our work schedule has not changed, we train every day in the morning and in the evening, we don't go to the gym only on Sunday. I believe myself and I will win on November 4. I fought in Azerbaijan 10 years ago, and after such a long time, I will compete again in my homeland. I will make every effort to win. After all, this is a double responsibility."
The fighter said that he had no aggression towards the opponent: "This is a sport - it is important to be calm. Of course, I would like to win at the end of the fight. Azerbaijan's hosting of this tournament is a great advantage for the development of MMA in the country, the interest of the young generation will increase. It's also a test for me, my opponent is in the top 12-13 in the world. Beating him is an important step for my career. As for future plans, if I leave here, it will only be for the UFC."
It should be noted that the main fight of the night will take place between Vugar Karamov and Japanese Chihiro Suzuki.
