Soares Says Translations Aren't Always Accurate, Puts Spin On Them

Ever wonder if what UFC Middleweight Champ Anderson Silva says to fans and the media through his manager/translator Ed Soares is a direct translation or not? Well, Soares spoke about the issue this week and his answer may or may not shock you:

“Yes and no. … I can say that sometimes I don't translate exactly what [Anderson Silva] says, but it's not something I do on purpose or to cover anything up. Things don't translate word for word. I'm trying to get the message across. If I were to use the same words, it wouldn't translate to the same meaning. … As far as fixing something, as his manager, I'm always going to try to make him look better — but it's nothing like lying or anything like that.”
