How did it feel to watch so closely one of the most expected fights in all history?
To me it was wonderful, great, not only because of the repercussion the fight had in Brazil, but around the world. The whole world was expecting this fight. Vitor was one of the last hopes to defeat Anderson, and you saw what happened...
Were you surprised with a knockout on the first round? Did you think it’d last longer?
Of course. Until that moment Vitor was winning the fight, he had attacked and taken Anderson down. I thought it’d be an interesting fight, but the kick Anderson did caught everybody by surprise, including Vitor.
UFC’s coming to Rio in August. Do you hope to be invited to judge some bout?
I’m cheering for them to call me for UFC Rio, and I think they will. It’d be stupid if they didn’t (laughs). The whole world is waiting for this event to happen.
