Who is the UFC translator and how many languages does he know?

There is one man who has become a bit of a cult figure thanks to his role as UFC translator and that is Fabiano Buskei. While this isn’t a formal title the translator has, he has been in the Octagon with some of the biggest names in the business.

Buskei has translated for Charles Oliveira, among others, and he seems to be the guy to go to for all the Portuguese translations.


This isn’t an easy job, given that the adrenaline is high after events. However, Buskei does keep his cool, and his LinkedIn profile highlights just how multilingual he is.

The Las Vegas resident knows English, German, Italian and Spanish, apart from Portuguese. He could probably do a lot of other translations as well, but he has done quite a bit of work outside of the Octagon.

While Buskei has become a regular on the UFC circuit, there is no other detail available regarding his personal life.

The Las Vegas resident has no dating history or has shared any details about his family either.

What other jobs does UFC translator Fabiano Buskei do?

The UFC translator has quite a stacked LinkedIn profile with a lot of experience over the years. Fabiano Buskei currently is employed with HotelBeds as a strategic account manager. 

His profile says that the UFC translator has 25 years of market experience in LATAM and the US, and it seems he has done some other work as well.
