Interesting video clip that has the two sitting side by side during an interview.

I know Gonzaga doesn't speak English very well but he sounds like an idiot. Both were apprehensive to give predictions which is understandable but since they were side by side it shows that mixed martial artists have respect for one another.

Exactly, there is great respect in MMA. The great respect shown by most fighters in MMA makes the sport that much more special than many other sporting events. Also, it was painful watching Gonzaga speaking. You got to give him props for trying though.

i mean who doesnt have respect for couture and he doesnt have anything bad to say about people and vice versa. Well couture does say bad things out about fighters but he does it in an informitive way so you see where hes coming from.

So you wouldn't call him an idiot but you call him an oaf. Are oafs smart?

sounding like an idiot and looking like an oaf is different. and i dont know if oafs are smart, all i know is hagrid helps harry potter and that justifies my reasoning.

I don't understand why he kept asking them for a prediction. These are obviously not the kinds of fighters who are going to predict the outcome of their own fight. Gonzaga did well in the first few questions, but his longer answers were a little bit more rough. Still english is a hard language to learn and you have to give him props for getting up there and trying.
