So why did Ortega need a Spanish translator?

    To tell the ref he could see last night?

    I'm not sure if anyone else caught that, I speak Spanish and I could swear that at one point when they were wasting time getting out of the corner (I think between rd. 4 and 5), and they were checking Ortega's vision, I thought I heard him get asked if he can see in English, then as he didn't respond they had someone asking him in Spanish to which he responded.

    <36>

    So what the fuck was that, you got this blue eyed kid from California who lived in his States all his life, and suddenly he needs a Spanish translator? Damn, Volk must have decked him pretty hard, sent his mind back to his ancestry.

    Did anyone else catch this?

    I didn't see it, but that's hilarious if true

    Maybe he was trying to honor Hispanic Heritage month, whatever that is

    I heard it. My guess is the coach wanted to give Ortega the option of saying something without Herb knowing what he said. Instead, he was ready to fight.

    EDIT: Not sure who actually asked

    Sure, as much as Matt Serra is Italian.

    Imagine Luongo translating to Serra in Italian in between rounds like that?

    Spanish is a language, and Spaniards are actually white.

    I hope you learned something today.

    What he hell does that have anything to do with Brian being Mexican? You’re clearly experiencing some racist stroke right now. Maybe you should call 911.

    Mexico is not a race either you muppett, it's a country that has people of various races including white living there.

    So where is my racism again?

    I think ortega could be a character out of karate kid or cobra kai. He gives me that vibe when I see him.
