The reigning M-1 Light Heavyweight champion Rashid Yusupov talks about his upcoming title fight against Stephan Puetz on M-1 Challenge 74 event, February 18th.
"With all the sincere respect towards Stefan, but his time has long gone away. He used to be the champion, but then he lost the belt. Let's see, of course, in what shape he is at the moment. I am pretty sure that he prepares very seriously for our fight. His experience and versatility, physical conditions, all this make to respect him. But I'm too "hungry" and too much appreciate my Belt to let anyone take it from me. So I'm going to pick this German machine apart." - said Rashid Yusupov.
M-1 Challenge 74 is set for February 18, St. Petersburg, Russia
