“I don’t know what happens here in Japan, man,” said Silva. “The fans just give me a lot of energy. I’m so happy to make all my fans around the world happy. That’s why I fight. I fight for you. I’m here because of you and my God, so thanks for the great support.”

“I got out of the strategy in the first round a little bit, because he’s a tough guy. He was so close to beating me. After I finished the first round, my coach told me to the right hand, and it happened.”

“He’s a tough guy; Brian Stann is a great opponent. I’m so happy to fight a guy like him and to just make a fight like that. I’m there to fight. I’m not there to run. I love to fight with guys like that. Thanks so much to Brian Stann for fighting me.”

“This was a special fight. The guys at light heavyweight are so big. I don’t know what is going to happen next.”
