Didn't he do UFC post fight interviews through a translator or no? I can't remember. Maybe a few random sentences.
Yeah, I'm really surprised by his English. Not long ago swpthleg coined the phrase "Ciganoglish" because his accent was so strong but it seems he's been working hard at it. I did notice that he could understand English in the press-conferences but decided to answer questions in Portuguese aside from some post-fight interviews.

It's really pretty amazing how far he's come in that department. Now if he had some combos aside from a right-hook left-uppercut =D
