Do you guys know if he can speak/understand a little Portuguese?

I know, for exemple, GSP, Pettis, BJ all picked up reasonable skills in Portuguese propably from their BJJ coaches, other fighters and from coming down to Brazil to practice/fight.
he wasn't correct.

"Falar de mim é fácil, difícil é ser eu [sic]" (Anderson)
"Talking about me is easy, try being me" (Soares - ok translation)
"Talking about me is easy, try BEATING me" (Chael - wrong translation).

I'm impressed nobody had already addressed this.

Soares translation sucks too, I can do it better

"Talking about me is easy, hard is to be me"
