Pascal Krauss Interview (German translator needed)

I was wondering what happened to Pascal, because he really impressed me in his first UFC bout, and I hadn't heard anything. I came across this video where he talks about his future, but it's in German . Could somebody on these boards please roughly translate what he says please?

For those who don't know Pascal, I suggest you watch his UFC 122 bout (FOTN). He was highly successful on the German Youth Boxing circuit, and wrestled on Freidberg's first division wrestling team. He has been practicing BJJ with Cesar Gracie too. He is 24 and has a bright future IMO. (10-0 with 9 finishes)

First he says he's fine so far, enjoying the FIBO (some kind of fitness convention). That he's spotted some "machines", male and female, probably meaning some decent bodybuilders. Then that he's up for giving autographs and open for fan questions later.
At 1:10 it's about his UFC fight a Oberhausen, that after the fight he got his schoulder injured and got surgery after never having had severe injuries before, but he hopes that he'll be back fighting end of summer.
At 1:40 it's about the throwback it meant after his success, gaining FotN awards and all the hype, but that he tries to see the positive things in it and that the injury made him stay down to earth and showed him how important it is to always also have other professional options beside the sports career as the latter can end so quickly and how important his real friends are who support him not only, because he's famous for fighting. So that in overall he had quite some "contrastive program" with those ups and downs and he hopes to have an injury free MMA career until he's 30.
At 3:30 they are mentioning his homepage pascalkrauss.com for infos and that you can find him also on FB and Twitter.
At 4:00 they're comming back to his fighting plans. Originally he was scheduled for April in Canada, but now with the injury atm he plans to be back in the cage end of summer/beginning fall.

That's about it.

Thank you for that ^. I had no idea he got hurt. I'm looking forward to his return later this year, and his climb up the welterweight ladder that is sure to follow.
