Hey bud,
Great article, UFC Fighters’ names often get mispronounced largely due to the massive inflow of fighters from all across the world; Bruce Buffer does a great job of making sure he nails down the pronunciation during announcing fights.
He’s done a tremendous job with ratifying falsely pronounced names,
Such as,
Francis Ngannou
Stipe Miocic
Rose Namajunas
José Aldo (Unlike Jalapeño, the “J” is pronounced in his name)
Ilir Latifi (Joe Rogan pronounces it as La-TEE-FAY, often La-TEA-FEE)
And one that I personally find difficult, Joanna Jedrzejczyk
…and plenty more to come in the future as UFC grows.
Cheers for the article, great read.
Kind Regards,
Nabeel.
