I made this thread years ago. Unfortunately it's gone, or I'm too stupid to find it. Either way, it's been a long time and there are plenty of new fighters to talk about. The idea of the thread is to explain how some of the fighters who don't speak English extremely well sound in their native tongue to us dummies who only speak one language. If there are specific fighters anyone would like to know about, ask. Maybe someone can answer. For example: -Frank Mir is very articulate and communicates well. He can sometimes sound a little pompous. -The Diaz brothers speak in a way normally associated with "the hood" using a lot of slang and profanity. They are often dismissive or defensive with interviewers. They dgaf. Some specifics I remember from the first thread that stuck with me: -Shogun and Ninja Rua have a rural accent and a weird cadence. A Brazilian poster who described it seemed to like it. -Kid Yamamoto (R.I.P.) spoke in what could be considered a "hood" way. Iirc it was basically described as how hoodlums speak over there. -Korean Zombie is very articulate and very polite -I wasn't able to get much about Fedor other than that he seems really nice -some people ITT accused me of trying to stereotype fighters and basically be a dick. That is not the case. I really just want to know what they're like. There were a lot of good posts the last time. Hopefully this thread will deliver as well. TLDR: If you speak a language other than English, tell us ignorant Americans what the fighters who primarily speak that language are like. Edit: some specific fighters I'm interested in are Petr Yan, Jan Blachowicz, Paulo Costa, GSP's French, Horiguchi, Aoki, Wanderlei, Nogueira brothers, Fedor, Aleksander E., and I'd love to hear about anyone else you guys can tell us about.
