Anderson Silva’s son wants him to retire

On one hand, it must be tough to have your father training diligently, always away from home. On the other hand, your dad is Anderson Silva, and they only guy whose ass he can’t kick is Chris Weidman, and that guy lives halfway around the planet, so…

Still, Anderson’s son misses him. And with this devastating leg break, he wants Anderson to retire. His 15-year-old son, Kalyl, delivered this message through Brazilian outlet R7:

All respect for Chris to go out there and fight like a champion. Congratulations, Chris. It’s your turn to be a legend. All the enemies are celebrating Silva and do not come to see me, is not my fault. But I want to see you do what he does. I hope he retires and go home because I’m tired of watching my father train every day, be gone for two or three months … and a broken leg happens … And as always you are my champion father. And once again, good job Chris.
