What impression did you get from the tournament
I like to come to such events whenever I can, I'm at them quite often. A lot of my friends are fighters. Even sometimes I go to their trainings and for a change fight with them.
This is a very good organisation, the hall is full of spectators. The people are interested and they want to see a spectacle. And thank you to the organisers for this event and the tournaments in Russia, they are raising the sport's profile (MMA), this is very cool.
Natalia tell us who you were supporting today. Did anyone impress you particularly?
Today I had the opportunity and honour to congratule the winner Arthur Hussain, wish him more victories. It's most important that he continue to train.
Natalia would you yourself like to take part in an MMA fight?
If I would start to do this sport someone will definitely suffer. At the moment I'm training at wrestling and I want to take part in the Rio Olympics, but then maybe. For the meantime I will remain a spectator.
What plans do you have for the near future?
In Krasnoyarsk there's a tournament on the 27th of January in memory of Ivan Rigin. I don't usually do very well at this tournament so don't expect great results from me! So in this year the main events are the European and World Championships. I will prepare - I still haven't been the champion of Europe or the world so... that's all ahead, I hope. With the support of our viewers and fans, it will happen.
And about the fans, what would you say to them?
M1 fans need patience, patience for their weak hearts, my girlfriends sit and are shocked 'how can you beat people like that'! Come to the tournaments, support, worry with us, when you know the country is behind you, millions of fans it gives you confidence.
