Kharitonov and Yokoi talk to the press in Tokyo, Japan. The press was preoccupied with the possibility of Kharitonov facing Fedor after this fight and asked DSE President Sakakibara about the possibility. Sakakibara said that Kharitonov could face Fedor for the HW championship after this fight but that he might have another fight before that opportunity is given to him. Sakakibara mentioned Cro Cop and Nogueira as possible opponents in that scenerio. When the press asked Kharitonov if he feels ready for Fedor, he said that he is.
