Speaking up in a recent interview with Fightland, MMA legend Anderson Silva said that his creative and unorthodox style has lead to other fighters teasing him that he’s gay. “The Spider” doesn’t think it matters one way or another, preferring to let people live their lives how they see fit:“They tease me. Sometimes people think I’m gay. A lot of people have asked me if I’m gay. I answer, “Look, not to my knowledge. But I’m still young, it could be that in the future I’ll find out that I’m gay. I take good care of my things, I put everything in a bag, I use soap, I put on a cream after training. People think it’s capricious. To each his own. Doesn’t mean you’re more man or less man, more gay or less gay.” “I don’t think there’s prejudice, but there’s a lot of homosexuals in mixed martial arts. There are a lot of them who haven’t yet come out. [If they were to come out,] nowadays it’s so silly to not express your feelings. As long as you respect people’s spaces, and respect their limits. You have to live your life in peace and no one has anything to do with that.” Definitely takes courage to talk about that Taboo subject in mixed martial arts.-TO
