Rule #5: Follow your Dreams
I remember my life, and the start, the training. And, the more difficult is the training, because my step-mom say to me, no martial arts.
Because this is danger. You are need to pick it up, you focus for school, and the same professional, your dad, your brothers. My family in Brazil, my whole family, my brothers, my dad, is cop in Brazil. I talked to my dad, no, I no go for school for the academy, for cop. I go for training, because I love martial arts. My dad and my mom say, you crazy. Why?
Interviewer: That’s funny.
Your brothers, your dad is the cop. Why you go change? Because, why? Why is your problem? I say, mom, dad, it is my dream. So now, it’s very good.
Interviewer: Yeah, it worked out.
Interviewer: It seems to have worked out. It seems to worked out for everybody.
Yeah. My dad talk to me now, my step-dad talked to me now, oh, good job man.
Interviewer: We were so wrong. We were so wrong.

It is all over!

Bam, and that is the end.
Rule #6: Learn from your Mistakes
Talked to my coaches and they all said: “Dude it was good you lost. Now we can see where the mistakes are” “Until then, everything was ok. If you didn’t lose, we couldn’t see what you were doing wrong” “We are able to figure a thing or two you do wrong and correct it” But there was a bigger mistake, which was the fact you weren’t 100% focused” “You mus keep all things that might affect you outside” ” In order to do what you have always done well”.
Commentator: Try to protect what seemed to be damaged ribs.
Oh, right to the face.
Caught him again.
Rich is in trouble.
High kick by Silva! Rich is in trouble!
Rich Franklin’s in trouble.
Commentator: Anderson Silva, and down goes Franklin! And it is all over!
Commentator: That shot right there broke Rich’s nose, and that was the end of the fight. A high kick, another high kick to the body. Tried the big elbow, another knee right to the head, and Rich goes down for the last time here. John McCarthy saw enough.
Flush on the face
Commentator: With that right knee. Rich staggers back.
Rule #7: Listen to your Heart
I don’t know. I don’t know, sometimes I think in my mind, so when I stop, Anderson? I talked to my master, it’s my first master, and why? Why is the time for stop, master? My master say, you no have time for stop. You time in your heart. When you heart say no more, no more. Because when you come to here, is young, I train you, no for fight, I train you for life. And martial arts change you life. You was in my technique in martial arts, for fight, but I no show you for fight, I show you for your life. And, I think when I finish, my heart give me the sport for say, Anderson, done.
Commentator: Look at Silva. I mean, that’s just amazing.
He’s out, he’s out.
And it is all over.
And here we see-
Look at this, Joe.
Commentator: Anderson shows complete disdain for the striking ability of Forrest. Look at that right hand, look at that. I mean, that was just like a paw.
Rule #8: Take it one fight at a Time
When I fight the first fight in UFC, and when I got the belt, I stay on the belt for seven years. Now, is no new one for me. So, I’m working for UFC. UFC is my family. So, my focus now is the fight for Nick Diaz. When I finish the fight for Nick, I’m win, I go training for next fight.
Commentator: Silva asserting dominance here. Oh, what an elbow. It is over.
A vicious elbow.
This was one
Commentator: of the most amazing, look at this. He throws it from here, watch this.
Commentator: Oh, what a shot.
Rule #9: Fear makes you respect all the Environment
No, I’m always afraid. It’s a contact sports, but it’s a sport where we see a lot of things during the training sessions. Silly things that cause serious injuries.
Interviewer: Like What?
Like an arm injury, from a wrong take down. Taking a “Wrong Punch”, not a “Wrong Punch”, but taking a punch where the hand is slighty open, getting poked in the eye process. Then you have an eye injury. Then you can’t train anymore, needs to be out for a while to heal. And during the fight, the risk is even higher. Because there are two well trained fighters, but he risk is higher. So i have fears, everytime I enter in the cage, I fear. I think fears make you respect all the environment.
Interviewer: And to defend Better.
And to defend better.
Commentator: I don’t think that would be a good idea. Oh! No way.
He’s out, he’s out. He’s out, he’s out!
Commentator: Oh, my God. That was, wow! That was a knockout, folks.
Rule #10: Just be Happy
When you go to fight, this is you; no have people, no have fans, no have nothing. When you go inside the octagon, you need you take it off, all the people in close together, you, and go inside, and put in your mind and your heart for fight. Sometimes I have the bad energy, good energy, but the more important, is you happy. When you go to fight, you go to walk in for octagon, you happy, everything is good.
Commentator: Like we said, second to none.
Commentator: Oh! He front-kicked him in the face!
Commentator: Absolutely rocked, trying to finish. It is all over!
Kick to the face!
Commentator: Remains the Middleweight Champion.
Commentator: A front kick to the face.
