Following his last fight in the UFC, the promotion’s CEO Dana White had this to say about the Brazilian’s legendary career –

“He could do things to people that other people couldn’t. He was almost impossible to touch. He would be just on the end of your punch – the leather might touch him just a little bit, – and he’d come back with a combination that would either knock you out, or almost knock you out.” (H/T MMA Junkie)
