He really seems to care about the guys on his team as more than just fighters. I for one thinks he's the kind of guy the UFC needs. Not some trash talking loud mouth, but a genuine good guy.
Haha, that is hilarious and absolutely correct. I understand everything he says during interviews, though I don't understand everything he says during fights. He's just too soft spoken for me to get it all with his accent.

He does seem to be the nicest guy on the planet though... that is, until he armbar's you

Nog had good english, but a thick accent.I can understand him most of the time, but not all.The subtitles are necessary.The same for bisping, because he has a thick british accent

Also I think his ability to speak English helps his marketability in the US.

I understand subtitles for Nogueira with accent and while impressive not 100% English. You can understand most of it but it's there if you need help understanding. Ross Pointon and Bisping? I am lost why they do it for them two, accent is probably it but it's an English speaking country. It isn't hard to understand them, however it may be for others.

On the topic of subtitles,
