Interview with Glaube Feitosa
書かれた Marcus Tomschi

In his post tournament interview Glaube Feitosa talks about his fight with Schilt and why Schilt was not going down from the high kick.

What do you think about the performance tonight?
A: I think for the audience tonight it was very exiting and good fight, but for myself, it wasn't a really good fight because I lost. I feel that I have to train a lot to improve.

Any damage?
A: Physically I don't have much damage at this moment, but at the end of the fight I got punch right on my nose, so I had a bleeding nose right after the fight, but I'm okay now so if I had to fight again, I can do it any time.

What was difficult about tonight's fight with Semmy?
A: Not only for myself but any fighter who's fighting with Semmy Shilt, it's kind of very difficult to fight with him because he's very tall and has long legs and long reach, so it is very hard to get inside to his body. The moment you get inside him you will receive his knee, so that should be the most difficult part fighting with Semmy.

During the fight, there was a hi-kick that almost took a down from Semmy, so even though you lost, was there any gain from that moment?
A: Yes, now I see many options in fighting against him. Now I feel that Semmy is not undefeatable. If I just go forward and put everything I got, Semmy is still a defeatable fighter.

In the 2nd round, you gave a high-kick to Semmy's face, so did you feel you put some good impact on the high-kick?
A: Actually, I was talking about that high-kick with my teammates, and I think I threw the kick too high and that's why I hit his face. If I could kick lower right on his neck, I think Semmy went down on the floor.
