UFC 134 press conference - The highlights

Quote:
Anderson Silva:
- Respects Okami and feels he has been respected in return as well
- Is very happy about his chosen profession even though he wanted to be a soccer player when he was younger, jokes that he’s translated his frustration from that into MMA
- Steven Segal was not involved in his camp this time around / “But that’s okay. For next fight, maybe.”

Yushin Okami:
- “It’s a great honor to fight in Brazil.”

Forrest Griffin:
- Jokes that he understands why Brazilians are against the Americans, says he always roots for the guy who looks most like him when he watches fights

Dana White:
- Truly believes Silva is the best fighter ever
- Chose Rio because it is a worldwide destination
- “I’m really looking forward to getting into the arena on Saturday night and hearing, feeling the crowd.”
- Respects Schaub’s stance on wanting to take on Nogueira / “I don’t mind guys calling out other guys. I like it.”
- Doesn’t know what’s next for Silva and says it will depend on the outcome from this weekend but says Chael Sonnen and Dan Henderson are both possibilities

Brendan Schaub:
- Thinks Americans should take advantage of the ability to help kids in the favelas / “For me it was a rude awakening. It was not stuff I’m used to. I got all my sponsors together and donated gear.”
- Jiu-Jitsu is his #1 passion in the sport but doesn’t expect to out-grapple Nogueira

“Minotauro” Nogueira:
- Has had three surgeries over the past year but is physically prepared for this weekend, feels excellent and is very motivated
- Will be his first fight in Brazil and is very excited
- The arena is only a mile from his gym so he expects all his students and family/friends to be there

Yeah you can't hear anything but Portuguese, and if you don't speak it like me, you're gonna be lost.

Edit - She's speaking english, now.

why would you translate all Brazilian into English if you're gonna do the opposite when people speak English? I know it's fed to the guys taking questions but it's of no use to the average English-speaking viewer?
