– I had a very strong acclimatization (when I arrived in Russia) – about 20-22 days. As if she was not in herself, she slept constantly, including during the day. I went out during the day to walk around St. Petersburg, eat and go back to sleep. Since the end of May, I have started to regain my physical form: I swing, I ride a bike. In addition, housework accumulated, which accumulated over four months of preparation. So far, I can’t combine homework and practice.

As they say I have been assigned a fight, so I will enter the octagon. We discussed the subject of my return with the managers. And I said I was ready to play in August, September and October. And we agreed that we would ask for a fight in September and then we would see how it goes. During these periods I would be happy to play – September-October, – Alekseeva told .
