UFC fighter, Anderson Silva, visited a fan in a Brazilian hospital over the Easter weekend and it was captured on video.
12-year-old Joao Pedro has been wheelchair-bound for the last 9 months and doctors don't know if he'll ever be able to walk again. Silva and the boy share the same doctor and when the doctor discovered that Joao was a big fan of Silva, he set up the meeting.
The translation of what was said is below, thanks to MMAMania.com.
"What's up, brother? Don't cry, come here and give me a hug. Don't cry, is everything fine? You want to get well soon! Give me a hug, give me a hug, a really strong one. Let's get well, let's get well. Let's take a picture.
Look what I brought for you, signed glove, this is for you. Look, let me tell you something. You're going to have to do something really important for all of us. Give all you got. Give 100 percent effort so you can get well really quick because Minotauro also had the same problem and he's fighting again, you know what I mean? So you got to give it all you got, ok?
I talked to the doctor to talk to Dr. Angela, who was taking care of Minotauro, so she can help you out also so you can go back to training as soon as possible, okay?"
