Andy Silva nearly shoots rafael cordeiro with shotgun

haha, he really keeps it real in this bio. Imagine what he wants to do to chael sonnen?!

Quote:
As a young man, Anderson Silva was once moments away from shooting his coach Rafael Cordeiro with a shotgun.

The middleweight champion launched his biography in Rio de Janeiro this week, dictated to writer Eduardo Ohata, and it contains surprising revelations. One of the biggest is how he lost his temper with Cordeiro after a dispute and returned later to put bullets in him.

In a certain period of financial difficulty, Anderson Silva was making his living teaching jiu-jitsu classes and Rafael Cordeiro, Chute Boxe head coach at that time, didn't want him to continue. They had a heated argument in which Anderson was slapped on the face.

Afterwards, Anderson went to a place where Cordeiro was, accompanied by two guys, and held a shotgun while he was waiting for the coach to return. His two companions apparently lost their nerve and they talked Anderson out of the action, making him control himself and give up on his intent.

Today Anderson and Rafael are great friends and the UFC champion even trains with the master sometimes when he is in Los Angeles. But the publication of the book created some repercussion in the past week because Anderson had never told his friend about the incident - Anderson’s son didn’t know either, and learned about it on the internet.

“I didn't tell him. I think he will have to read the book. I ended up visiting some website because my son said: ‘Dad, did you see what is on the internet? They are saying that you tried to kill Rafael!’ I said, ‘Calm, let me see what is it about and then I will call you back!’” he related.

“But I speak the truth in the book. That was a phase in my life in which I had nothing but the gift God gave me to give classes and I almost did a foolishness.”

Summarising the book he explained, “The biography says the truth of everything that happened since my childhood until this moment. It documents day-to-day frustrations, what is good, what is bad, and how is bad to stay away from the family. The book tells my life.”

This story along with the car wash, plus a few of the one to two liners he gives paints a picture of a man who only very recently in his life feels like he can live it.

Anderon is a weird guy. Who lets their family find out about something like that on the internet? The more I read about his past before he became famous, the weirder he gets.
