SRC Damashii! Episode 3

In a recent interview with Sherdog.com, Yoshizo Machida talked about Ishii training there earlier this year:

Sherdog: Having spent 70 days with Satoshi Ishii, do you believe he can become an MMA champion?

Yoshizo: I can’t tell. He’s an excellent athlete. He never gets tired. I think he’ll adapt really fast to MMA. In the beginning, he was getting beaten badly by Lyoto, but after two months, he improved a lot. I corrected his posture, taught him how to walk in the ring. Sometimes during training, he cried, not because he was tired but because of the high humidity near the Amazon. He has the Samurai spirit and always finished every exercise I gave to him. I’ve heard he visited and trained at the Renzo Gracie academy in New York and people liked him.

The third episode of SRC Damashii focused on Satoru Kitaoka and his return from the crushing defeat at the hands of Mizuto Hirota, which almost caused him to retire. Thanks to the uploader.
