Pride: How do you feel now? Gomi: I want to apologize to the fans and everyone who came to cheer for me. Pride: What was the reason for your loss? Gomi: I didn't train enough. Well, I wanted to make it exciting again but I didn't train enough. It doesn't help to make excuses now. It was a chance for me to gain fans but my body just wouldn't come along. Pride: You said that your mood would be improved by the time you came to the event. How was it when you were actually in the ring? Gomi: I was watching Hansen's fights and I was more relaxed than during the Grand Prix. I was trying to put myself up by watching the fights rivaling mine, like Ishida's and Dan Henderson's, but I haven't done enough work and my body couldn't hide that. Pride: If your training for previous fights were 100%, how would you rate your training for this fight? Gomi: I haven't done anything other that stay in good health. I sparred with Kenji Suzuki because I didn't want my stomach to stick out like Hunt's but that's about it. I wasn't able to train like I did before. It's been 2 months since New Year's Eve and this was my 11th fight in 2 years, so I was tired. I want to gain fans but unfortunately, I betrayed everyone today. Pride: You looked panicked on the ground after you were taken down. Were you? Gomi: Yes. His ground punches aren't as heavy as Hansen's so I was concentrating on getting half-guard. I got it once but the ref didn't stand it up and when I took my chances and moved, I wasn't able to get half-guard again. I didn't want to tap. I felt helpless. Pride: You were able to escape from the arm-choke once. Gomi: Did I? When my neck went to the right, he got both of his legs completely out and my legs were stuck. He had the choke on and I couldn't get back in half-guard. Pride: Do you think Aurelio was well prepared for you? Gomi: Of course, he was. He carried out his plan and didn't make any mistakes. Pride: You said that you weren't motivated this time. Are you tired? Gomi: I want to win 20 fights straight but I stopped at around 10. There's probably some pride in there and mental exhaustion. Both. It's really unfortunate because this is what is resulted in. I think martial arts are interesting and I will recover but I want to rest a little. I don't want to think about anything. I think I've done well for these 2 years. It's been a good lesson. I want to rest a little so I can fight in the BUSHIDO ring against this year. Pride: After the fight you were just staring at the screen. What were you thinking about? Gomi: I wanted to see what had happed. Pride: Do you feel regret? Gomi: Regretful and apologetic. I saw the fans leaving right away and I'm sorry that I let them go home so quickly this time. Pride: When will you make your return? Gomi: When I'm motivated again. I think everyone already knows that I'm a strong fighter.
