    Why do I hear people pronouncing Jose Aldo's name as Jose with a hard J.

    The MMA Live guys, Ariel, etc.

    I think its because foreigns don't know how to pronounce foreign names.
    It was hard for me pronouncing english words when i first moved to the US, and i used to pronounce it wrong too. But i learned, still some words i say it wrong.
    But Americans don't need to learn how to pronounce it right, foreigns are in their country, they can say it how ever they want to.

    i think most americans know that Jose is generally pronounced with an "h" sound, so when they say it with a hard J they're probably going out of their way to say it that way.

    yeah they say hose but with a harder H sounding HOOOOOOOOOse. still wrong though. but kind of hear learning how to pronounce new things, specially if its foreign.
    i got a friend that is also Jose. He hates how americans pronounce his name so now when he meets americans he says his name is Joe.
