“I'm having a taste of everything a fighter can pass through in his career. I'm being put to the test. It's that story; the true warrior is the one who doesn't give up. You have to go through hardship to know if you will give up or not. I'm still here."
“I'm in one piece. I will come back as soon as the event invites me. I hope to fight soon. To try to feel the taste of victory. The Silva family never gives up. I will show you all that I never give up. I will be ready for the next.
“I left the event and I came home feeling so angry and bitter. Then I realized if I had won, I would be thanking God. So I went down on my knees to thank God for giving me the strength to fight again. It had been emotional to be back in there again.
“The fans and everything… I just wanted to give a good performance. But to fight again after 16 months [off] was already a victory… I want to show everybody that I still can. I will go back to training. That is my life.”
