The legacy of Anderson Silva continues to live on through his son, Gabriel.

Gabriel Silva made his professional Muay Thai debut this past weekend (Sat. June 15, 2019) in a light heavyweight bout at the WCK 35 event from California. Gabriel defeated Nick Navarro with a second-round TKO. “The Spider” posted a photo from the first round of the match-up on his Instagram, which shows his son knocking Navarro down twice:

“I’m very proud. I saw a lot of me in you today. I’m happy, and think that the certainty that I can really stop really is closer. Love you, my son. Bad Boys.”

Gabriel himself shared some highlights on his own Instagram page, writing the following:

“I will remember this night for the rest of my life. I’ve learned a lot from it, and I will continue to grow.”

It remains to be seen if Gabriel will venture into mixed martial arts (MMA) as his father did. Silva himself is currently on a two-fight losing streak inside the Octagon. He has lost six of his last eight fights since 2013. At 44-years-old, it remains to be seen how much longer Silva decides to fight. Regardless, he’ll go down as one of the greatest to ever do it.
