The coaches revealed Anderson’s reaction when he woke up from surgery.

Rodrigo Minotauro said Anderson was sorry for what happened : “His first reaction was to open his eye and apologize to the fans and to the team because he could not win the fight . The doctor said he is fine and that he will be back to physical activities in six months. This gave him comfort.”

“The important thing is to do everything the doctor said. He is eager to see his children, his wife. Then, he wants to talk to the fans and to all the public who supported him,” said another team member.

“The goal is to recover the leg. Walk again, that’s our focus right now,” said Ramon Lemos, Anderson’s Jiu-Jitsu coach.

“Anderson is always a very positive and centered guy. I’m sure he’ll be joking about it very soon, that’s his way of being. I believe that Anderson will recover and will return to fight at a high level,” said Pedro Rizzo, another of Silva’s trainers.
