Anderson Silva is one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time. The Brazilian American mixed martial artist is the former UFC middleweight champion. He held the record for the longest time in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
The stand-up fighter holds a record of 16 consecutive wins from 2006 to 2013. Undoubtedly, Silva has never failed to amaze his fans with his striking and knockout power and also his different techniques to bring his opponents down.
‘The Spider’ has had his fair share of victories and losses. Throughout his journey, he had one person as his backbone.
This person is his wife and confidant, Dayane Silva.
Dayane Silva and ‘The Spider’ are married for over a decade now. They together have three sons and two daughters and are leading a happy family life.
Both Anderson and Dayane Silva have origins from Brazil. Silva’s wife is a former gymnast. She has also represented Brazil in the 2000 and the 2004 Olympics.
Seeing the history of matches, it is very evident that Dayane doesn’t like much of media presence and makes sure that she is away from the limelight as much as possible.
The fans haven’t spotted her in most of the fights. While maintaining a low profile, Dayane Silva has made sure that she is with her husband, giving all the support that he needs.
Though Anderson Silva’s wife enjoys keeping her personal life private, she hasn’t hesitated from embracing Silva’s success and failures as her own. Her positive and warm nature has definitely made a great impact on Anderson Silva’s UFC career and life.
Dayane Silva hit the headlines when one of the Brazilian fighter’s opponents, Chael Sonnen, trash-talked about her. Despite Sonnen taking jabs at her, she did not mind hosting him whenever he is in Brazil as long as he keeps his hands to himself.
This is what Dayane said in her interview with SPORTV:
“I loved Anderson’s answers after the fight. Come on, Chael. You can come to the barbeque. You just can’t touch my butt. For me, it was Anderson’s best victory. Chael shouldn’t have talked about me. It was the worst thing he did.”
This gesture just shows that humbleness and kindness flow through the Silva family. She has reiterated many times that her belief in God keeps her grounded, and she is thankful for having such a wonderful family.
Silva is one of the greatest mixed martial artists who execute his skills to the point. Now all his fans are eagerly waiting for the 45-year-old to come back to the cage on October 31, 2020, at UFC Fight Night: 181 and mark his victory once again in the UFC.
“When people think about Anderson Silva, think about: ‘Oh, this guy help me.’ Doesn’t matter what happen… Love your job, love your family, love your personal life, and doing something better for people,” Anderson Silva said in an interview.
