Anderson Silva Comments On UFC 237 Loss

It would be a short and bitter loss for Anderson Silva on Saturday night, as one of the most dominant fighters would fall in the first round in-front of his fellow Brazilians at UFC 237.

Silva would suffer a leg injury at UFC 237 against Jared Cannonier, and after being helped out of the Octagon and refusing to go to the hospital, Silva addressed his fans via Instagram.

Fala meu povo. ATE O LIMITE… A dor é sua amiga … Ela mostra que vc não esta morto ainda. Dizem por aí que grandes símbolos tornam-se grandes alvos, talvez… mas a coisa mais importante é não se vitimizar se caiu levante, se quebrou conserte, nada de desistir ou achar que não consegue porque perdeu uma batalha. O ditado e um só, eu vou até o fim e quanto mais me pressionarem mas eu vou querer ir até o fim, não existe nada selvagem que sinta pena de si mesmo, um leão velho rodeado de hienas famintas loucas para devora-lo e ele mesmo assim luta até a morte sem nunca ter sentido pena de si mesmo, e não será diferente comigo!!!! Foça e Honra!!!

A post shared by Anderson “The Spider” Silva (@spiderandersonsilva) on

“Until the limit. Pain is your friend. It shows you are not dead yet. They say that great symbols become great targets, perhaps. But the most important thing is to not victimize yourself. If you fell, get up. If it’s broken, fix it. No giving up or thinking that you can’t because you lost a battle. There is one saying, I will go until the end and the more they pressure me, the more I will want to go until the end. There’s nothing wild that feels sorry for itself. An old lion surrounded by hungry hienas, crazy to devour him and he still fights to the death without ever feeling sorry for himself. And it won’t be different with me. Strength and honor.”

Silva and Cannonier was the co-main event of the card from Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, and would end late in the first round after a leg kick sent Silva to the ground clutching his leg in pain.
