Anderson Silva: “A Lot Of People Thought I Was Gay” Growing Up

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has had to field questions over the years in regards to his sexual nature. Silva, regarded as one of the top fighters of all-time, admits in a recent interview with Tatame that people believed he was homosexual growing up.

“A lot of people that I was gay,” Silva said. “We would wear a dress, put on her shoes. And because I am very vain about my appearance, and have a high voice, a lot of people were sure I was gay.”

Silva, who has been married to his wife, Dayane, for 15 years, has five children. He added that he allowed his sisters to dress him up and he played with dolls until he was 14.
