When I attended the University of Arizona, I paid my Spanish neighbor in 12-packs of Moosehead Lager to complete my homework assignments and take-home tests. That year marked the first time in my life that I received an A in any foreign language class — even English class. I stuck it to the man, and I was happy to do so. A portion of my college education was dependent on whether Albertson‘s stock of alcohol was fully equipped and my neighbor’s strong aversion to enrolling in Alcoholics Anonymous.
Something tells me Alistair Overeem didn’t use the same technique to acquire his Spanish speaking ability. Granted, Overeem can actually speak Spanish and I can just fumble around at Machos Tacos while I order a Carne Asada. It’s clear that El Octagono knew this when they approached Ubereem at the CFA 06 even in Miami, Florida a few days ago. Check out this interview from the Spanish MMA site and be introduced to your new favorite female on-camera interviewer, Andrea Calle.
