I’m a Nogueira brothers black belt, and I’d give my life for them. I say that and I don’t need to patronize them nor them me. Rodrigo is my master and Rogério is a brother and teacher to me. If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be here today. I decided to put on the gi as a tribute to them and for the things I’d said. I told Rodrigo I’d get the submission this fight. I told him that. Everything worked out yet again.

Now all I’m thinking about is to get home and rest, go to the doctor and get treatment. After that we’ll see what’s to be done.

--Anderson Silva, told Gracie Mag that he promised Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira a submission, and wore a gi as a tribute to him.
