You may want to get the tissues handy for this one. UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva heard about Joao Pedro, an active young man who is suffering with a disease of his legs. Joao Pedro has been in a wheelchair for the last nine months, and Silva is his idol. Watch what happens when Silva drops in on Joao Pedro and gives the young man not just a bunch of gear and goodies, but some heartfelt words. It doesn't matter that the words are in Portuguese. You can sense the feelings behind them.

See? I told you to get the tissues.
