Things certainly didn’t didn’t work out the way Anderson Silva hoped at UFC 162, but the resulting scenes paint “The Spider” in perhaps a more human light than ever before.

In a video blog today released by Silva’s team, the former UFC middleweight champion allows cameras to capture the moments that followed his second-round knockout loss to Chris Weidman. The scenes include a few post-fight pep talks from Usher and Roy Jones Jr., as well as an emotional group reflection on the loss.

For a notoriously private fighter still regarded by many as perhaps the greatest fighter in history, it’s a revealing look at Silva’s immediate reaction to the loss and where his head may actually be ahead of a rumored rematch between the two.
