Frankie Edgar Interview



Little interview with Frankie Edgar by a Swedish MMA fighter named Hamid Corassani, after a training-session.
A little fun fact: The Swedish fighter is from the same city as me and i know his sister :P

Every Scandinavian i've ever encountered on my travels has spoken impeccable English. Also this guy, Martin Kampmann- what is it with the teaching over there?!

We learn english very early in school. I actually learnt quite a bit of english even before school, from watching american and english TV. It's our second language and everyone just learns it by default

I look over at Sweden and the way they run their shit, compared to the UK, and I'm embarrassed for us.

Well Sweden has always been a great country to live in and I wouldn't rather be from any place else. Sadly now that the right-wing politicians have taken over, things have taken a big turn for the worse. Hopefully it won't last long and the consequences won't be to big.
But just out of curiosity, what were you thinking of that you find to be better over here?

Edit: major off-topic I know, but hell it's not like this awsome in depth interview is going to be discussed much anyway lol.

The girls?

But seriously, corporate laws for a start. There are chemicals commonly used in our foods in the UK that you guys have banned. Additives and other nasty shit. My missus is a qualified biochemist. The things she tell me about some of these chemicals. Scary nasty shit. not just Sweden. Austria, Norway, Switzerland. All these guys have stuff banned that the UK deems fine for us to eat. The fact that scientists in civilized countries ban stuff that we dont, is worrying.

Beyond that, your education system rocks compared to ours. Ours is a violent cesspit. There are education systems that get state funding in countries like yours, that we dont get a sniff of.

Man... I could go on forever.

Take my word for it. The UK sucks right now. Education. Health. Business. Stealth taxes. A government who openly and brazenly laugh at us while cutting all our services.

I shall end right here before I smash up my laptop.

Thaks for the interview.
I am a big Jones fan, but i feel like the world has gone crazy: every second thread is about Jones.
Nice to see something different for a change.

And yes: i believe Sweeden is a great country to live in also.
Every year, you pop-up in the TOP 5 of the best countries to live in, in terms of lifestyle satisfaction (or something like this).
