Anderson Silva released a biography last week and makes at least one startling revelation. Silva says he planned to kill his trainer several years ago, but was talked out of it by friends.

According to Fighters Only, Silva says he was going through a difficult time in his life financially. He was teaching jiu-jitsu classes, and the Chute Boxe coach Rafael Cordeiro did not want him to continue the classes. They had an argument in which Silva was slapped in the face.

Silva, upset, took a shotgun to where Cordeiro was and waited for the coach to return with the intent of shooting him. Luckily he had two friends with him who talked him out of the murder plan and nothing ended up happening.

Fighters Only says both Cordeiro and Silva’s son learned about the story for the first time last week. That had to be a pretty awkward moment for Cordeiro, I imagine. Can you envision being friends with a guy for years only to find out much later that he showed up ready to shoot you?

Good thing Silva was talked out of the incident otherwise the world may never have gotten to see his talents.

I read about this which was crazy. Something that was even better is that someone had the guts to actually slap him in the face.

How I envision the slap actually went down

That shows what kind of a cuckoo Silva really is. He probably should have left that info out of his book.

When I read the headline of this post I just assumed he meant he almost killed his trainer in a sparring session or something because things like that are possible when you spar with Anderson Silva I'm sure.

But I'll admit a shotgun is still slightly more dangerous than Silva.

Yup, after listening to the tribal chants in Brazil towards the American fighters......doesn't surprise me at all.

Stay classy and modern Brazil

Well, I'm sure Andy would first kidnap and then murder with a shotgun or machete, etc.

wow, dude is a nut. Great fighter but a nut. Pretty sure everyone has had thoughts like that but it's a whole different thing to show up w/the gun to actually follow through on the crazy thoughts....

kind of freaky when you think about how much he has felt "disrespected" by other fighters.

It must have been a rough patch in his life for him to take it that far, but I'm really just left shaking my head at this whole thing. It's bad enough it went down the way it did, it's even worse to put it in print. It's a terrible move on all levels. I'm relieved for Chael that the fight got moved to Vegas, although I have to admit that I really wanted to see exactly what would go down had he won the belt there. It's probably best that we won't find out for everyone involved, and the sport itself.

The only thing that would happen is Chael receiving a standing ovation from the Brazilian thugs like Rocky received from the Russians in Rocky IV.

Maybe Chael Sonnen should re-think the level of trash talk.

I can't believe they would make this information public.
