I may not be able to fluently speak Portuguese, but my fingers are proficient at locating Google Translator and using it like the fate of humanity lies in my hands. My car may not be a 2012 Nissan GTR, but ultimately when you need a ride, my car is better than your shoes. Therefore while my Portuguese-to-English translation abilities are marginal at best, you must settle for my lackluster attempt at shifting linguistic meaning to a specified culture.
Here’s what Jon Jones told to Brazil’s UOL Esporte just hours ago.
“É engraçado, talvez eu seja o clone do Anderson Silva, apenas mais jovem. Normalmente, eu ando por aí com cerca de cem quilos. Falei com o Dana White sobre fazer uma luta como pesado em 2012. Ele disse que não achava uma boa ideia no momento, mas quem sabe para 2013?”
For all those non-Portuguese speaking individuals out there, Jon Jones says that he may be the clone of Anderson Silva, but only younger. Everything else is virtually identical. That was my shout out to Mike Goldberg today. Actually, that’s my shout out to Goldberg for the rest of 2012. Funny story about Goldie, I almost saw that guy fight an MMA journalist last year at a club in California. Mark Dellagrotte and I had to break it up. How can I make this stuff up?
Bones Jones goes on to say that he approached Dana White to fight as a heavyweight this year, but Dana told him that he thought it wasn’t a good idea. [Source]
