UFC Cuts Alleged Woman Beater Thiago Silva After Video SurfacesDiana Moskovitz9/19/14 8:14pmFiled to: UFCMMAThiago SilvaDomestic Violence3110EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink UFC's leaders have changed their minds—again—and dumped light heavyweight Thiago Silva today after welcoming him back just two weeks ago. What changed? After all, they already knew the scary details of Silva's arrest in Broward County, Fla., which included accusations that he forced a gun inside his wife's mouth and threatened to kill her and another man. They knew the charges were dropped, but only because the main witness—his wife, Thaysa Silva—left the country. And still UFC took him back.
