I decided to fight in the UFC which was a “major league” in MMA … I will debut in July or August and my contract is six fights. When offered, I thought Dana White was interested in me because he planed to expand his business in Japan and Korea. Aside from his real intention, I am glad if I can attract more Japanese and Korean to MMA. That would be great if I can fight in Japan and Korea as a UFC fighter … I want to fight a champion someday. I dream about challenging (Yushin) Okami when he becomes a champion. If Wanderlei Silva [does come] down to middleweight, I want to fight him.
