She literally said, ‘If you die tomorrow, everybody’s lives will still go on. You don’t need to take care of everybody. I want you to get rid of all the bad energy in your life. You have to get rid of all the crazy. It was of those mom speeches.Jorge's mom was always his biggest supporter, even if she couldn't find it in her to attend her son's fights in person. Recalled Gurgel, “Everywhere we went (she said), ‘This is my son. The fighter I talked about. This is the fighter.’ She was just so proud." But at the same time, Silvia was also the strongest proponent urging for his retirement. It was "never his true calling," she would tell him. After 12 years and nearly 25 professional bouts, Gurgel had done as much as he could as a fighter. But as a coach, there was still plenty of life left in him. “If you continue to fight, you’re never going to give your students or the future generation a fair chance,” she told him. And in keeping with his mother's wish, Jorge Gurgel has decided to retire from mixed martial arts competition.
[VIDEO] Dana White Shows Off His Money Gun Filled With Heroin Bullets, Or Whatever, For Jetset Magazine
That's a gun that's taped up in dollar bills. What this piece of art represents is ... literally on the other side on that clip, those are all real drugs in there. There's cocaine, black tar, heroin, and a bunch of other actual legit drugs that are in the clip over there. It represents what war is really all about. What happens as a result of war. It's all about money, what happens to the soldiers who go over and fight, most of them become addicted to drugs or messed up somehow. So it's pretty cool what this piece of art represents.Today's lesson: If you are a rich white man, you can possess cocaine and heroin as long as it's "art." (And by "art", we mean a base-level interpretation of war delivered with the subtlety of an Ed Hardy rape whistle.) -J. Jones

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva became the first person in six years to defeat Alistair Overeem back in 2013 when he weathered the early storm and finished the former Strikeforce champion.
