On the Fourth of July, Thaysa Silva boarded a Miami plane bound for São Paulo and never came back, according to prosecutors. She took the domestic violence case against UFC light heavyweight Thiago Silva with her.
The Broward State Attorney's Office today released the memo from its lawyers explaining why they chose to not prosecute the domestic violence case against Silva, who was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of written threats to kill. When Thiago Silva first was arrested, UFC president Dana White pledged that Silva would never fight again. But within days of the decision to not prosecute, Silva was back with UFC.
