UFC legend Anderson Silva announced on his Facebook page that he is ready to come back to the UFC. The former UFC middleweight champion often talked about in pound-for-pound lists was suspended for one year after testing positive for steroids in his fight with Nick Diaz at UFC 183.
Silva posted a photo with this caption translated via Facebook.
I’m more focused then I have ever been before, get ready my people, I’m coming back! #UFC #2016
Good afternoon my people, I’m coming back #UFC
Not even the real champions live only of victories
Because the defeats serve us lessons
And with them we have learned that earn it takes
But for that we need to learn how to compete
We learned so that plan, organize, be disciplined
And the more important that we have a goal
That’s what makes us a great and true champion.
Each Dawn is a victory that God in the
Because it is sure that we will have one more day to live
So let us make the best, the fair, the pleasant
To that new amanheceres come
And that every day we’re fighting
Not against someone, but in a fight of life
In the certainty that stopped, discouraged, little motivated
Maybe even get to somewhere…
But don’t be surprised if this place, it is not your desired.
