Thiago Silva’s estranged wife, Thaysa, released two videos this week that show her ex-husband’s potentially dangerous behavior.
Thiago Silva is an MMA fighter who was charged with two counts of aggravated assault in February for allegedly threatening his wife and her boyfriend with a gun. Silva was arrested after barricading himself inside his Florida home (mugshot below). He was also initially charged with attempted murder, but those charges were quickly dropped by the judge. The other charges were eventually dropped because Thaysa became uncooperative with authorities and moved out of the country, leading UFC boss Dana White to reinstate the fighter (UPDATE: Shortly after this story was published, the UFC dropped Silva).
Thaysa gave an interview to Globo this week from Abu Dhabi, where she moved with her boyfriend to start a new life away from her abusive and dangerous ex-husband.
Along with the interview, Thaysa released the videos which show Thiago carrying a gun and apparently high on cocaine. Thaysa says she was filming him in case he killed her.
Below is the second video along with a transcription of their conversation:
