As we have been reporting, Thiago Silva was arrested last night in Florida involving an incident with his wife. After a bond hearing this morning, Silva now is facing charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, one count of resisting an officer without violence, as well as one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon stemming from a prior incident.
The UFC had released a statement early this morning saying they were aware of the situation.
TMZ talked to UFC President Dana White and told them, “This guy will never fight in the UFC again.” The UFC released a statement a short time ago stating they are terminating Silva’s contract.
“The Ultimate Fighting Championship has terminated the contract of Thiago Silva, effective immediately,” the statement read.
