Assunto:  Ed Soares interview
 
Mensagem:    For those of you who aren't familiar with Ed Soares, he is a top Brazilian mma (mixed martial arts) agent. He managers the likes of: Anderson Silva (UFC World Champion), Lyoto Machida (another Brazilian who just lost the UFC light heavyweight world title to Shogun, another counterpart) and José Aldo (WEC World Champion).
He's always there behind the UFC scenes representing and translating to the best Brazilian fighters, whom happen to be at the top of two categories and in the mix with the best of the others.

Anyways, the following links will lead you to two of his recent interviews. I wonder if it is just my own impression or the dude's command of the English language is somehow perfect?
I mean I have no idea whether he's ever lived in US or if he's got any roots there or something, I'm just very impressed since that is the kind of English I wish to be able to speak. For how long do you think one should be involved with English in order to be able to master the language like that?

Please give us your thoughts.

Thanks
