    She was mouthing off to Rousey at the staredown, but does she even know a lick of English?

    Or was it the standard "Uh, vai morrer" death threat in Portuguese?

    It's kind of weird that so many Brazilian fighters don't speak English. So many people in Brazil do. You would think that fighters in MMA hoping to eventually fight for American organizations and who would financially benefit from knowing English (important to sponsors, appeal to the North American audience) would make it a priority early in their career.

    Learning a language takes time. Making it into the UFC takes a lot of time in the gym.

    Perhaps they would rather train harder and win then drop some cash on english classes early on?

    But they are brazillians working for an american company. That is why aldo and all the other brazillians are by far bring in the lowest ppv buys out of any of the champions. they are virtually incapably of doing any type of promotion.

    Americans are hated around the world because of what you are saying. No matter how candid you make it sound does not change that.

    That famous Canadian inferiority complex. Or maybe you consider that offensive, coming Quebec, I forget how that works.

    If I'm aiming to compete in a sport where the owners and most of the money is in another country, I focus on learning the language.

    So many Brazilians who rarely if ever leave Brazil speak English, you have to learn English or Spanish in school, it's just strange how many of their fighters don't, even those that have been fighting for American organizations for a decade.

    THIS. I'm actually impressed with Cyborg for this very fact. I remember when she first started out, she couldn't speak a drop of english and often had to have bad translators. Now she's able to hold her own in an english language interview and for that I commend her. I wonder why guys like Aldo and Barao don't take the time to learn the language. It could've helped them out big time over the course of their careers.

    I speak English, Pig Latin, and Ebonics, and I can count to 10 in French.

    If I were to get a job as a contractor for a Japanese firm, where my earnings would be tied to effective communications with the local audience, you better believe I'd be taking Rosetta Stone courses for learning Japanese.

    It's called common sense.

    Can't speak Japanese? Don't work in Japan.

    When in Rome, dudes.

    I don't know about you but taking foreign language classes in my free time isn't exactly something I would ever want to do unless I lived in a country that spoke that language.

    Anyway, who cares what language they speak if they bring it.

    I don't recall many american's learning Japanese when they fought in Pride. Carlos Newton was Canadian and already spoke japanese, he doesn't count.
