Anderson Silva confirma revanche para o dia 28 de dezembro - GQ | Noticias
GQ: What's the impact made by this defeat on the Anderson Silva "brand"?
AS: It doesn't change a lot. After losing, I've gotta prepare myself again and go back to f!ghting. By the way, I confirm the rematch, which will take place December 28 this year.
GQ: If you could go back to the beginning of the 2nd round of this last f!ght, would you do anything differently?
AS: I think I'd try to stay more focused. Would go the opposite way, but wouldn't change my strategy. I believe I employed my game, only it ended up not working. A game is a game, you can win or you can lose.
GQ: What was your first feeling when you noticed you had been knocked out?
AS: A bad little feeling. I'm still experiencing it. I had never been knocked out in my life. I didn't like it.
GQ: How was it like to tell your kids about the defeat you suffered?
AS: Geez, they were watching the f!ght and they know their dad. They know that's what puts food on our table and guarantees our future. I went to work and came back home after an unexpected result. But, as they say, in their eyes I'll always be the champion.
GQ: What do you have to say about speculations that the f!ght was fixed or that you facilitated your own defeat?
AS: That's crazy. I spent four months focused on my training camp. There were people on the team crying and all that. I am a responsible guy. I would never take a dive. Never.
GQ: What did you think about the brazilian press' reaction? And about statements made by other f!ghters on social networks?
AS: Truthfully, I was upset. I've always been open to the press, I'm not a celebrity, I'm an athlete. They could've been more understanding of what happened and deliver the news properly to the public. Knowing that an athlete wins one day and loses the other. My son calling me, crying, because his friends told him his father was a clown, is not cool. But it's as I told him, one day you're the king, the other you're a bastard. We gotta move on.
GQ: How big is this defeat to you? Is it just another tough moment in your career or is it something that will completely change some things in your life?
AS: The most important thing for me was to realize that people like me and want to see me winning always. But it was also important to reafirm that I'm not invincible. Nobody is. Everyone has their bad days.
GQ: What are your plans for the rest of the year?
AS: To train and to fulfil my schedule outside the UFC. I've got movies and ads to shoot, everything goes on.
GQ: What would you like to tell your fans?
AS: I'd like to say, first and foremost, everyone makes mistakes. I'd never take a dive. But a f!ght is a f!ght. In life, we f!ght a lot and we don't always get what we want, but that's not reason enough to stop f!ghting. You gotta get back on your feet, make a comeback and continue f!ghting. You can only win if you f!ght, but that doesn't mean you'll always win. That's what I take with me to the octagon and how I carry myself in life.
