“I’m a man with honor. I’d never fight Jacare or Lyoto. I’d even stop fighting just not to fight them. Jacare is a guy that has been doing a great job and can earn a title shot (soon). Lyoto is a close friend, a great athlete, and we train together, just like Jacare. If we get to a point where we’d have to fight. I’d even give up the title.”
Silva told the fans during a Q&A session in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sunday that he would never fight one of his teammates, not even for a title.
