— In the last 10 years, only UFC fighters have defeated you. Can we say that even lost battles haven’t been as difficult as this one?

– Well, even take my last fight with Edwards, I won it on points. There was just a mistake, there wasn’t enough experience. These are the mistakes of youth. I made a mistake in accepting this fight. I was in the top 15 then, and he was probably in the top 50 in the rankings. I thought it was a passing fight, I accepted it, I didn’t prepare much, I decided that I would quickly get out of it and close my defeat (from Gunnar Nelson – approx. “”) .

— The average person may think that only UFC fighters can beat you, but are there any interesting opponents left for you in the CIS in the under 77 kg category?

“Let Leon Edwards come here himself.” I’m here and there are a lot of worthy fighters here. Who would have thought that Ustar would show me such resistance?! I didn’t expect it either. ASA is one of the best leagues in the world and I feel like I have a lot of opponents here.

— Would you be interested in Andrey Koreshkov in the future?

– He’s very interesting, let him come. I think we would have had a crazy fight with him,” Tumenov told .
