Agora é foco, continue treinando duro, o segredo é fazer por amor sempre!! Parabéns…estou orgulhoso, vi muito de mim hoje em vc, estou feliz e acho que a certeza de que posso realmente parar está mais próxima!!! Te amo Filho…Bad Boys
According to a follow up report from MMA Fighting, Anderson had this to say about his son, who won the the fight via TKO.
“I’m very proud. I saw a lot of me in you today. I’m happy, and think that the certainty that I can really stop really is closer. Love you, my son. Bad Boys.”
Gabriel will undoubtedly have a lot of eyes following his combat sports career, if he decides to go that route. In terms of Anderson, it’s still not clear what’s next for the former UFC champ, following his loss to Jared Cannonier last month. The comments above could indicate that retirement is near.
