Anderson “The Spider” Silva, the UFC Middleweight Champion, opened up to Karyn Bryant on FUEL TV’s “From All Angles”. Silva explains how the Nogueira brothers convinced him to keep fighting, his warrior spirit and his family.
“The Nogueira brothers are part of my family. I love these buys because me stay together with my dream, because one day I talked to Rogerio and Rodrigo and say I no more fight bro… Ya, the time Rogerio and Rodrigo talk to me, I no have nothing. My dream was lost, Rodrigo talked to me and said ‘hey come to my house, I will help you. Don’t worry. Come to hear, we will train together.’ I finished my contract with Pride. The guys tell me not to fight in Pride anymore. I said ‘what? I fight in Pride, I’m good in Pride. I had no problem with Pride, but Rodrigo help me for better fights. I love Rodrigo. I love Rogerio. This is my family.”
