Anderson "Spider" Silva & Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira


Pretty cool video interview between "The Spider" and "Minotauro" I came across the other day.

Talks about how Minotauro got into the UFC after pride crumbled and how Mintauro and his brother convinced Anderson not to quit MMA back in 2003. (Sure Leben, Franklin, Lutter, Marquardt, Irvin, Cote, Leites, and Griffin all simultaneously face palmed each other right about then LOL) just kidding but enjoy the video.

holy shit andersons english is still terrible.how long has he been in the US almost 4 years now.Its time to work on your english buddy.I think a big part of why he doesn't have as many fans as the other champs is because he has almost no english.

Is it just me or does Anderson sound a bit like Michael Jackson/Mike Tyson at 2:40?

In all serious, good interview. Black House might rule for a few years to come.

Who cares if he can't speak English properly...really? Also I think he's got PLENTY of fans because we can see he's a cool dude, who's respectful and represents our sport perfectly. Plus he's a bad mofo in the ring/cage.

Look at big nog.He has excellent english, and in addition to being a really cool dude on TUF, he has alot of fans.Anderson has no fans, his PPV numbers speak for themselves.Sure some of the hardcore fans like him but no casual does.

The only thing I give you out of all this is TUF. Yes if Anderson spoke English he'd have a TUF contact and most likely have more fans, but when you're a wrecking machine and have plenty of money and thinking of retiring, learning a language for "casual fans" should be the last thing on your mind.
