"It was just sad. I know how long Anderson Silva's been working to be who he is. I've won several (UFC title fights). This guy's won 12 or 13. That's a lot of work. So to see such a magnificent career and legacy get tarnished by two losses, two kind of flukish losses – I wouldn't call the first one a fluke; he was playing around, but a left hook is a left hook – it sucks. It leaves a weird taste in your mouth – it's not supposed to end that way. What I'm hoping is that people remember Anderson for all the magnificent things he's done, all the lives he's touched, all the people he's inspired, and I'm hoping that Anderson just stays away from the sport and continues to be an inspiration outside of the octagon.
Not fight again. Anderson can do seminars, he can do motivational speaking, he can help all the kids in Brazil. I mean, he's such an idol. His greatness has just begun. But I think in the octagon, I think it's been already fun."
