Damnit. Who's cutting onions?!

Can someone translate?

"MMA and Muay Thai are similar in a few aspects, such as the fact that their is no traditional belting system - only a list of people you never want to have to fight." - Kenny Florian

Heartwarming to know that the most dangerous fighter on the planet is a really nice guy. He could be a complete showboat d-bag narcissist because nobody would stop him but he's not.

Really plucks at the ol heartstrings to see how happy it made the kid. That's the important part. The kid literally breaks down and balls from pure happiness.

I saw this on junkie earlier, good stuff. It's amazing how big of an impact a small gesture like this can do for someone. It gives the kid, Anderson, and the Doc that brokered it, all a nice memory.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Doc: What sport did you practice?

Little warrior: I did some fighting

Doc: You used to fight, then? Do you like it? Do you REALLY like fighting? What did you practice?

Little warrior: Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Judo

Doc: Who do you like more in fighting?

Little warrior: Anderson Silva and Minotauro

Doc: Anderson Silva and Minotauro? *walks to the door*

*Anderson Silva enters and the little warrior start crying*

Anderson: What's up brother? Haha! Don't cry, don't cry! Give me a hug here!

Anderson: Give me a hug, give me a hug! *hugs the kid* What's up little man, how have you been? Everything all right? Let's get better soon? Come on, give me a hug, a hard hug! Let's get better soon, eh?

Little warrior: (sobbing) I don't believe...

Anderson: I'm here brother! Will you get better soon or not?

Little warrior: Let's do it...

Doc/Anderson: Come here Joćo, let's take a picture!

Anderson: Look, I brought you your fighting gear, your signed gloves, this (signed poster) and this (his action figure)

Anderson: Let me tell you something... Look, you will need to do something VERY IMPORTANT for all of us, you will need to work hard to get better soon, okay? Minotauro had the same problem, and he still fighting, so you will need to keep working hard, right? I talked with Minotouro (Lil Nog), and we will talk with Doctor Angela who was taking care of Minotauro (Big Nog), and she will come here to help you, so you can resume your training as soon as possible, okay? Right?

Little warrior: Right... Thank you very much for coming here to see me...

Anderson: It is me who thank you (hugs Joćo), so let's get better soon, okay? And stop crying, let's be happy! You will get better soon, and we will train, right? Promise me?

Little warrior: Yes...

Anderson: All right, so we'll roll after you get better

Doc: Did you like the surprise?

this is beautiful.
