That's because Wallid Ismail isn't a translator by trade, he's just a Brazilian who happens to speak a bit of English.

Also, Silva's translator/manager whatever needs to be hired by the UFC. I thought he was an absolute joy there just thanking random people, reminds me of Vitor post UFC 133 with the happiness and enthusiasm.

He already owns the biggest domestic promotion in Brasil and makes no bones about his intentions of getting his champions into the UFC. He and Dana/the UFC enjoy a great working relationship at the moment.

Pretty sure Wallid supplied the majority of the fighters for the Brasilian TUF.

I rather liked his enthusiasm and obvious love of the fans/sport. I'd just sometimes like to know what the fighter is actually saying. There are several 'translators' who can't actually translate, and then there are people like Ed Soares who only relay their version of what was said.

Eduardo Alonso sets the standard.

I'm sort of both amused and stunned that "hardcore" MMA fans don't know who Wallid Ismail is.

I'm a huge GSP fan, but look out. This guy is way more well rounded than I thought.

Brenneman was able to get him down but he couldn't keep him there nor was he able to do anything with the TD.

If GSP were to stand with this guy it might be a rough night. The outcome of the fight would depend on whether or not GSP could keep the fight on the ground or not.

Ya that's right... this guy has only 3 fights in the UFC and I'm pumping his tires as the guy to beat GSP. I actually think he is more well rounded at this point in time then my boy Rory.

GSP is gone for a year and everyone forgets how incredible he is. I love Erick but GSP would definitely outstrike him and take him down at will.


But not to say he wont have a fantastic career. Lots of guys at WW are stars despite being the #2 or lower.
