ICYMI: Greg Jackson Puts on Russian Accent While Cornering Rustam Khabilov at UFC Fight Night 42

(Props: r/MMA)

Broken English is the universal language. As a master instructor and communicator, Greg Jackson understands that — which is why he cornered Rustam Khabilov as his “Sergei” character during UFC Fight Night 42 on Saturday.

On a related note, Dana White spoke with our friend MDS over at MMA Fanhouse about the incident, and summed it up thusly:
