Igor Borisov 

"My neck is OK. No damage by kick at all. But I admire Kerr for his power. I never expected to be held my neck from that position. My neck bone was almost broken. I was planning to fight with him mainly centering on punching, but my preparation was not enough because of injury before the fight. I would like to fight in Japan on October again. Any opponent will be accepted."

Mark Kerr

"Today I fought for all the people who came to see the fight. Japanese fans are the greatest spectators in the world. I will never come up in the ring with such a bad condition I was in the last time. I was not expecting the fight to finish so quickly today, but I wanted to show off my aggressiveness and kick technique which has improved a lot. I would like to be back to Pride again this autumn and to fight with Fujita or Ken Shamrock. Then I want to win in GP next spring."

Gilbert Yvel

"I was nervous before the fight, but now I feel good. The previous fight was not good and I couldnft show my technique there. However, this time I did it. Goodridge couldnft see my high kick at all. It was my plan to use a left kick many times in this fight."

  Igor Vovchanchyn

"I didnft think Ensonfs punch is heavy. I was just surprised that he immediately started to attack me with a punch. I thought he would be afraid to exchange punches with me. I am training for a defense against gkansetsuwazah, so I am not afraid of it. I myself prefer punching, but I donft ignore the training for gkansetsuwaza.h The reason why I donft like gkansetsuwazah is that my original background is kick boxing."

Enson Inoue

"Today I wanted to win, and I wanted to dedicate it to Andy Hug. But I couldnft do it because of lack of training. My fighting spirit is not strong enough yet. I will continue training and do my best to win next time."     

 Ken Shamrock

"I was finished at that point. I almost fainted away, so I asked the corner to throw in a towel. I canft tell you the details, but I had some problem with my condition during the training. It recurred in the fight. Fujita was tough, but there is no damage by his attack. Regarding the fight itself, I think I was controlling it. I will have to have my body checked when I go back to my country."

Kazuyuki Fujita

"I was thinking before the fight to go for it and not to stop it. [Don] Frye and [Brian] Johnston taught me that I would be a target if I stopped moving I took some punches and some were effective enough to shake me. But I had intention to fight until the end, fighting back against his attack. I was surprised when he gave up the fight."
