    She has an American girlfriend, an American coach (Din Thomas), lots of American teammates and has lived in the US for over 5 years but her command of English seems to get worse everytime she's interviewed.

    Whenever they feature her on countdown and UFC embedded I can't help but think that her and Nina Ansaroff probably don't have many deep and meaningful conversations...

    Why speak when their bodies do all the talking?

    It's sad, it can make a difference in appeal and thus ppv's. Reminds me of aldo who refused to learn even the basics of English. Take junior/Francis and dozens of others as an example as how it should be done.

    She's still better at English than Mackenzie Dern though...

    Even my English is much better and I had only studied in the USA for 3 years. Still got a different accent though.

    "How did she got"?

    I guess it makes sense why you would think this.

    Because she's not a native speaker and started learning English later in life?

    Do you think honing your English skills will help you get a girlfriend?

    She has better things to do than work on her English.

    Most of the American expats won't also speak the local language after a few years...
