"God gave me talent and put the right people in my way. In Shooto I won my first title and I beat Hayato Sakurai. In Cage Rage the title came at the right time — the organization was growing up and I needed some exposure, which came to me with the title. UFC came to crown my career. I'm living the best moment in all my life."
--UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva on his successful mixed martial arts career, which includes winning three title belts in three different promotions, as told to Sherdog.com.
