He is predicting a win though...
Goiti Yamauchi recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Musa Toliver tonight at Bellator 99. Check out the highlights:
On whether he thinks he'll get a submission win: "It's better not to predict. Anything could happen. I think it's nearly impossible to guess how it's going to end. But without a doubt, I'm winning. I don't think much about (how). I am more concerned with victory, no matter how."
On not getting caught up in the bigger stage of the show: "I think being calm is one of my best qualities. I was born this way. I'll always be this way."
On whether being in Bellator at 20 stresses him out: "Just the opposite – it motivates me even more. I'm bringing my best skills and I know I can put on a great fight with anyone in my weight class."
On his strategy: "We've been able to formulate a strategy based on the few (Toliver) fights we've been able to watch. I feel we'll pull off this victory by imposing our game plan. I've never been so ready for a fight. Recently, a lot of people have been recognizing my work. I am very happy with that. And now I'll be able to demonstrate my hard work in the cage."
