In a week we’ll see the Top 8 transitional match between American Dave Chaffee and Lithuanian Deivydas Rimkus. What is Dave preparing to his opponent? ()
Dave, you have a chance to compete with the strongest guys from around the world. Are you glad about this? What does participate in Top 8 mean to you?
- I'm very excited to be competing in this match. I have to win this match to even have a shot at the Top 8. So, let’s worry about Rimkus and then we can talk about that later.
Indeed, Deivydas Rimkus will be your opponent in the transitional match. Have you seen the performance of this athlete on the Zloty Tur?
- Mr. Rimkus did awesome at Zloty this year. I have watched videos of his past matches and he is very impressive. I'm going to have to come in at the top of my game to defeat him.
What will you prepare for him? In general - how are your trainings go now? What do you pay the most attention to?
- This match came about pretty quick, so I didn’t have a Iot of time to prepare like I usually do. But mainly I will prepare for him the same way I do for any armfight.
