Joachim Hansen: “My aim is to be 65.5kg (144 pounds)”

Speaking via Fight Magazine, Hansen said:

“I’ve always been somewhere in between the two weight classes. So, when I got home to my native soil after the loss against Aoki, I decided to make the drop. If I do the drop the weight correctly, I see myself being big at featherweight. I believe I’m using the right weight-cutting techniques.”

“I’ve changed my diet after learning how the wrestlers do it. My aim is to be 65.5kg (144 pounds) on an empty stomach when in Japan. I’ve been practicing weight cutting a few times now, I can do 2.5-3kg (about six pounds) easy and rehydrate back up without any problems and not lose any strength.”

Joachim Hansen, the 2008 DREAM lightweight Grand Prix winner, speaks about his weight cut prior to his upcoming bout this Monday at DREAM 13 when he faces dangerous, Bibiano Fernandes.
