A. Silva became my favorite fighter back when he couldn't put two English words together.

but thats just not how it works

he needs to know how to market himself, thats how it had always been

or if he had a more agressive style, but he wont do it, and its riskier. so, he needs to talk in english to gain popularity and more money

The ability to speak English means nothing to me, but like most people here, I'm a pretty serious fight fan. A lot of people will feel differently.

When it comes to marketability, PR work, and overall star power the ability to speak English matters a lot - in America - where the PPV money is made.

Still my favorite two guys couldn't speak English worth a shit (Fedor/Silva).
