While his name isn't the same as his world famous uncle, there's still some pressure if you're getting into the fight game and are related to pound-for-pound MMA king Anderson Silva.
But 19-year-old Guilherme Bertholdo shrugs off his famous lineage and told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) he's trying to forge his own fighting path, which right now is strictly muay Thai.
"No, I don't feel any pressure," said the soft-spoken Bertholdo, who faces 24-year-old Chris Lazaro tonight at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas at Lion Fight Muay Thai VI. "I'm just trying to do my own thing."
The 12-bout card streams live at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on LionFightPromotions.com. It features a main-event rematch between World Boxing Council light-heavyweight (175-pound) champ Joe Schilling (12-2, 10 KOs) of Los Angeles and Simon Marcus (23-0, 18 KOs) of Toronto. Marcus ended their February meeting with a quick, and controversial, TKO...
He may eventually follow in Anderson's footsteps? Interesting.....so, he's going to be working at McDonalds?
I wonder if he's going to pull a gun on his Manager after being demoted to Fry Guy.
