Yes, you're probably right and that would certainly explain why I can't find it.

I'd still like the source, if anyone knows.

This was from shortly after the Rickson fight in 2000. It was actually a strange interview overall from Funaki. Funaki said things like, "I was so anxious and afraid to fight that I asked myself if I should strike Rickson with my sword" (the Samurai sword he walked to the ring with). He said he partially wanted to leave the ring and not fight, and was very anxious.

He also added things like, "Rickson is so old, what if I were to lose to a person of his age? It would be so embarrassing"

Funaki was very, very worried before that fight with Rickson. It's a shame, because Funaki had the upper hand before Rickson front kicked him in the knee and tore Funaki's knee up.

I read that interview so long ago I doubt it's still online. Maybe I can find it in an archive. I might have it saved on my old laptop, too. I'll look for it. Phone Post 3.0

I FOUND IT!!!!

 

Q.       Was a costume at your entrance expressing your determination?
 
Funaki:  Yes.  It is a very dangerous story, but this is a fight in which either one will die under the rule without a referee-stop.  To be coward, I really didn’t want to die.  So I showed up with a Japanese sword.  I had a strong confidence in my victory.  But, if I lose, it will be nothing but choking. Choking means death to me. Then life became dear to me.  Just one and half month ago, after completing the training camp, a little weakness came out to me.  It gave me a crazy idea that I would cut him when he gets in.  Yes, it’s really a crazy story.  If I did it, I would be the same kind of man who commits a crime like a hijack or murder.  It would turn out to be my betrayal of many people such as my fans who come to see the fight between Rickson and me, fighters of Pancrase, my supporters, and my relatives and family.  So it is out of the question, but I was really stuck to an extent that such a crazy thought was running into my head.  Confidence and anxiety were living together double-facedly. When my training was going well every other day, my mood was so high. On the other hand, when it was not so good, I was sticking to that crazy thought.  I don’t mind even if the fight would fall through, or I would be sent to a jail for a while for killing Rickson with a Japanese sward when he gets in.  But everybody would leave me, if I did it.  No company, and only left is me treated like abnormal.  So I decided to fight with a belief in myself and my victory.  I can not deny my anxiety no matter how nice compliments are given to me, such as “you are strong” or “you will win”, etc.  I think it is the same to everybody.  They are just bluffing themselves.  Even Rickson is the same too, I think.  Then I recognized myself as a human. (deeply breathing out) Finally a long fight came to an end.  There was no answer in kakutougi.  All I learned is to keep on fighting forever.  Thank you very much for everything.
