Stuart Austin (14-6) is relishing his upcoming bout at EMC 5 for the company’s inaugural heavyweight belt in Düsseldorf, Germany. ‘He-Man’ talks about the ‘fun’ opportunity coming his way this Saturday when he takes on one of his former judo heroes, Satoshi Ishii, for the title and predicts he will finish him. In an ideal world, he would like to be the first person to submit the Japanese Olympic gold medalist. The 32-year-old also talks about the non-exclusive fight contract he has with EMC, discussing the fact that more fights with the promotion will be on the way, but he’s allowed to compete on different shows too. Austin discusses preparations for this weekend’s fight, as well as his future career options and goals.
