Anderson Silva's Son Wants Him To Retire
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.31.2013
In an interview with Brazilian news outlet R7, Anderson Silva's (33-6 MMA, 16-2 UFC) son Kalyl said that he wants his father to retire after Silva broke his leg fighting middleweight champion Chris Weidman (11-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) at UFC 168.
He said: "All due respect to Chris to go there and fight like a champion. Congratulations, Chris. It's your turn to be a legend. All the enemies are celebrating Silva and do not come to see me, is not my fault. But I want to see you do what he does. I hope he retires and [goes] home because I'm tired of watching my father train every day, be gone for two or three months, and a broken leg happens. And as always you are my champion father. And once again, good job Chris."
