Emotional Anderson Silva watches ‘Big Nog’s’ win backstage (Video)

Are you really going to tell Anderson Silva that real men don’t cry? During this past Saturday’s UFC 153 co-main, Antonio “Big Nog” Nogueira earned the submission win over the BJJ skeptic, Dave “Pee-wee” Herman. As the current pound-for-pound great watched backstage with his team, he became very emotional watching his jiu-jitsu coach rebound from injury.

Of course this wasn’t the end of the party for Team Nogueira as Silva did what he does best, putting on a clinic of strikes against Stephan Bonnar, earning the TKO finish in the first. Watch the ever-elusive style of Silva here as he toys with his opponent before kneeing him to the solar-plexus and finishing it on the ground.
