You can watch the full interview in Russian b clicking THIS LINK, however BloodyElbow has the translation:

“I’m not ready to fight under the contract conditions that was offered by the UFC on the terms that they decided. Contract was just draconian and oppressive. I’m not ready to sign such an enslaving contract. First of all, they should show respect for the fighters — the kind of respect I receive in Japan”
