no , i criticize his english because being the best fighter in the UFC if he wants to earn more money and be the face of the UFC like he should be, he needs to have better english.... think about it this way, if you moved to brazil and were a soccer star, would you not learn Portuguese? if you moved to japan to be a businessman would you not learn japanese?

No. A businessmen needs to be able to communicate with whoever he's working with. Silva is a fighter, he does his talking with his hands. If he learns English, good for him, but I'm not gonna knock him if he doesn't.

No. Besides, he seems to be doing very well with his career.

look everyone, i think your missing my point. anderson silva is my favorite fighter, i honestly do not care if he speaks good english personally. but with great power comes great responsibility.... all im saying is to become the star that he deserves to be, all he needs to do is learn good english. cause with his personality and fighting prowess that is all thats left

How does such a simple question get twisted around so much jeez. YES he has improved his english in my opinion since I last heard him. See there, was that so hard guys. He never asked if he needs to learn english or whatever in his first post he just asked if he has improved it
