Q: How about in K-1?
A: That is possible, but now I am focusing on the WGP.
Q: You are a 4-time champion. How many more times do you want to win?

Daniel Ghita

Q: How do you feel 2 days out from the fight?

A: He is a good fighter. In my opinion he has a good heart too, as he will fight with anyone.
Q: How do you feel looking back at your last fight in the Final 16?
A: It was a good fight. If I was a little bit luckier I might have won. I think it was a good fight.
Q: What is your goal for this year's WGP?

A: I have nothing to say.
Q: How about to your fans?
A: Please watch the fight, and I will put on a nice show.
Q: Do you feel it is difficult without a Romanian translator?
A: A little.
Q: I hope next year there will be one here for you.
A: Thanks.
Q: Do you have a particular strategy for this fight? In previous fights you have had a lot of success with the low kick.
A:I cannot do only low kicks against a fighter like Zimmermann. He is a great fighter so I need to be a complete fighter too. Someone like him will block the low kicks.

A: I train for everything to get stronger. Everyone knows I have good low kicks now, so I have to train everything.

Q: What is your goal for this fight?
A: to win of course.
Q: Please give a message to your opponent.
A: I don't really have a message for him, but I am totally ready for our fight.

A: I appreciate their support a lot. I will borrow their power and display it in their fight.
Q: Where did you train for this fight, and was it with Golden Glory?
A: Yes, I trained in Russia and Thailand for this fight.
Q: Korean fans still strongly remember you beating up Semmy Schilt in PRIDE. Would you like to fight him in K-1?

Chalid Die Faust

Q: How do you feel right now?
A: I feel very good. I am relaxed and physically great. We had a great training camp in Thailand. For the final 4 weeks we focused on nothing but training and our upcoming fights.
Q: What is your impression of your opponent?
A: I have known him for a while. He is a nice guy, but a perfect fight for me coming back to K-1. I have been away for 2 years due to an injured shoulder.
Q: What sort of fight are you planning to show?
A: For me just the fact I am fighting is the most important thing. Of course I want to win by knock out, but that will come. Just getting back my fighting rhythm is the most important thing.

Q: Do you have a message for your fans?

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
