Cornermen Google translator, let's figure out WTF they're saying.

It drives me batshit that I can't understand what cornermen are yelling at fighters who are, for example, French speaking, Portuguese or Russian speaking.

I'm wondering if there's any brave forum members who want to post commonly used instructions/exclamations from the corner in the various pertinent languages. I think we'll come up with some super awesome stuff.

I can help with Cro Cop's fights, even though I won't be watching him live ever again.

Right after GSP beats the hell out of BJ, he comes back to the locker room and every other word is "tabarnac." The first thing out of his mouth is "I was under so much f8cking pressure."

I'm just curious about common phrases like "spin out" "KNEES!" or "You won that round" would translate.
