    Because he definitely understands it, and make good sentences.

    This would be so good for the sport to have him on US TV shows.

    He's our ALI after all.

    I find Anderson's poorly-spoken English charming. I agree that he should speak it more but not because I'm one of those idiots that nitpicks for things to criticize him about, I just like the way it sounds.

    See this crazy thing about human beings and fans in general is that they are interested in the athletes both in and out of the cage. Mindboggling I know, the fighters should just fight and then fuck off shouldn't they Dillinger?

    It is uncomfortable speaking a foreign language when everybody that can hear knows every mistake you're making. It's more comfortable when the people around you also make those mistakes. He speaks English but not very well.

    LMAO at Jon Jones looking away when Anderson Silva said he wants to fight GSP! :icon_lol:
    "I got a few fights left until I retire."
    "DANA GIVE ME A TEN FIGHT CONTRACT OR I WILL KILL YOU!!!"
    Anderson Silva is truly the master of deception.

    I think he needs a translater most of the time to make sure he understands 100% what he is being asked.

    Ali is a good comparison, very skilled boxer in his time.

    He generally gives canned responses in English because he doesn't fully understand the questions. I'd rather get a proper response translated.

    Can't you just learn Portugues? English is derived from Portugues.

    Anderson also uses canned responses when speaking in Portuguese during interviews. He does that due to the contract with Nine (Ronaldo's marketing agency). Well at least he's not preaching all the time like Vitor does :D
