Default Lost in Translation.... Anderson Interviews?

I think I had this view a few times before when Anderson has given interviews, but recently experienced it again.

Do you feel Anderson actually answers interview questions? I just went to UFC.com and watched the post fight interviews.

Found here: http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=MultiMedia.home

Several questions were presented to Anderson and I feel he skirts around the questions. Several of his responses were extremely kind to Forrest, but I felt in the process it didn't answer the question at all. Is it lost in translation? Does he just not wish to answer the questions? It's a bit annoying.

I thought the questions were good, namely:

1. Were you surprised when Forrest put his hands up at the end of the fight? (Couldn't Anderson have said yes or no? He didn't. He could have said he knew he rocked him previously etc, he didn't)

2. There was a question about Anderson dropping his hands and dodging and asking if he felt like Forrest had hit him at all or felt as if he could be hit. (Anderson praised Forrest but doesn't answer the question.)

3. Question about him not putting 100% behind some of his punches and attacking to the fullest. Question pertained to his training and if anyone gets accidentally KOed or how his training works compared to his fights. (Talks about who he trains with and how great they are)


I'm REALLY interested in his view of question 2. He drops his hand and it's amazing. It's like he thinks he's super man. Look at the dodging he did in the Franklin fight. Someone has a gif of it on here.

I was also interested in his views of not giving 100%. Now certainly, you don't always throw a punch as hard as you can. But Anderson seems to toy with people. I just want to hear his view on his. Machida at least explains his style and how it is linked with Karate. I'd like to hear Anderson talk about it. I do not feel he has to DEFEND this, just want to hear what's going on in his head.

I think he is an amazing fighter which is why I am curious about all of this.

Is he getting paid to win fights or getting paid to do interviews?

I'm not criticising him as a fighter which is specifically why I put in the last statement. "I think he is an amazing fighter which is why I am curious about all of this."

I'm simply curious about what he thinks about himself as a fighter, his style, and really I'm interested in his answers to the questions posed to him.

if anderson speaks his mind then sometimes ed soares has to kind of change the answers which he does. at the post fight conference for the leites fight wilson gouveia was talking about how anderson basically said f*ck the fans but soares obviously isnt gonna say that he said that.

I think Ed Soares his manager / translator just sort of gives the main idea of what Anderson says.
He obviously doesn't repeat things word for word.
