If only all news could be this positive. UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva made a hospital visit to one his biggest fans recently – 12 year old João Pedro. The young boy had been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from the age of five. Unfortunately he has suffered a rare bone disorder called epifisiolise (portuguese), which leaves him disabled in a wheelchair.

Pedro’s mother had made the contact with the superstar through Silva’s Dentist. The surprise visit likely helped add hope to the ailing boy, as you can see the emotion in the video above.
