More on this:

Quote:
According to a recent article from FOX Sports, former UFC light heavyweight fighter Thiago Silva now has an immigration detainer, meaning he could be deported to Brazil if found guilty of felony charges, according to Silva’s lawyer, Scott Saul:
Saul, a criminal defense lawyer, said he was going to enlist the help of an immigration attorney to fight the hold. Saul said Silva is a legal resident of the United States and he isn’t sure why he could be facing deportation.
“It’s a solvable issue,” Saul told FOX Sports on Monday.
The detainer might not stick, but its presence is not allowing Saul to immediately fight Broward County judge John Hurley’s decision to hold Silva without bail. Hurley ruled that since Silva is a Brazilian national, that he is a flight risk.
Thiago Silva had his UFC contract terminated by the promotion last week following his arrest in Florida.
Quote:
Thiago Silva’s wife finally broke her silence regarding the incident that happened last week in Oakland Park, Florida, that led to Thiago’s shocking arrest.
Thaysa Kamiji, who was married to Silva from 2004 to 2012 before the couple separated, recently did an Interview with Brazilian website UOL (via MMAFighting) where she stated that Silva’s recent cocaine use led to his violent behavior.
Her words:
“You know what I don’t understand? We had a healthy relationship, we always talked, each one respected the other’s space,” Kamiji said. “He became (violent) over the past three weeks. I think that’s the consequence of the use of cocaine.
“My marriage was over in December of 2012. In our relationship, I had to deal with the imbalance and aggressions. But I never went to talk to the police because I fear the reactions. Even after I was assaulted, I did not speak.”
Pablo Popovitch is adamant that he never had a relationship with Kamiji until she ended her marriage with Silva. According to Kamiji, she decided to leave Silva because of his drug use, and she was afraid to report the abuse she had suffered:
“That’s what ended the marriage,” she said. “The problem was cocaine. He always thinks he’s above the law. My neighbor knew that she should call the police if she ever heard me scream. He had the cocaine paranoia. He came to my house, tore my clothes and pointed a gun at my head. I already suffered some abuse, but I always withdrew because I was afraid.”
It’s worth noting that Thiago Silva never tested positive for cocaine use in any of his 12-career UFC bouts. The Zuffa-owned fight promotion terminated Thiago’s contract following his arrest last week.
Quote:
Thiago Silva appeared in front of a Broward County (Fla.) judge on Friday morning, where he had two charges against him reduced.

Silva, however, will remain jailed without bond after Judge John Hurley determined the UFC light heavyweight remains a “legitimate concern” to his wife and others around him based on what “looks like ongoing domestic violence in the relationship.”

Hurley also cited the potential for Silva to be a flight risk to his native Brazil as a reason to not apply bond to the four charges against him, despite initially planning to set the combined bond at $2,500,100.

Silva had two counts of felony attempted murder reduced to aggravated assault with a firearm after Hurley ruled there was no probable cause on the attempted murder charges.

Those counts stemmed from a Thursday night altercation at Pablo Popovitch Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Oakland Park, Fla., where Silva’s estranged wife trains. There, police allege, Silva threatened his wife, Thaysa, with a gun, and told her that if Popovitch didn’t come out of the school, he would go inside and begin shooting. After Popovitch emerged, then went inside to call police, Silva fled to his home, where a four-hour standoff with a S.W.A.T. team ensued before he surrendered nonviolently, police said.

According to arrest and police documents read aloud by Hurley during Friday’s court proceedings, Silva and his wife separated in 2012. But on Jan. 30 of this year, the judge read, Thaysa Silva called 911 to report a domestic altercation. She told police that in an argument with Silva, he picked up a silver revolver, pushed her down, said he was going to kill her, put the gun in her mouth and held her down. Thaysa Silva obtained a temporary injunction against Thiago at that time, Hurley said.

On Wednesday, Thaysa again called 911 to report a separate incident with Thiago, and she gave police access to text messages he allegedly sent her that made claims he would hire someone to kill her and move his girlfriend into their home.

Things came to a head on Thursday, when, at 7:44 p.m. ET, police records state, Silva pulled up to Popovitch’s gym and began honking his horn continuously until Thaysa came outside. Thiago Silva, believed to be intoxicated, according to the police report read by Hurley, then pointed a gun at her. The police report states there were approximately 25 people inside the gym at the time of the incident.

After Popovitch came out and approached the driver’s side of Silva’s vehicle, Silva allegedly threatened him, as well, before he went inside, locked the door and called police.

Once officers arrived at Silva’s home, he came outside following the standoff – where the report says he was tasered. Officers reported he was “extremely intoxicated” and that he uttered he “did not know what was going on.”

Silva’s attorney, Scott Saul, argued with the court that the first two charges against his client of attempted murder were “classic aggravated assault,” and not attempted murder.

“He never got out of his car. He never fired a gun,” Saul argued in front of Hurley. “You’ve got two real rock-solid aggravated assault charges. What I think this is, is you’ve got a professional fighter and an (assumption) thinking he can kill, an overreaction based on what the man does for a living.”

Ultimately, Judge Hurley did say in court that Silva’s profession and size – arrest records show him as 6-foot-2, 220 pounds – played a factor in him believing that if he was set free on bond, his physical stature alone was a concern.

“The court is concerned this looks like ongoing domestic violence in the relationship,” Hurley said. “You’re an MMA fighter, and your size gives great concern, with or without a weapon, you could easily kill your wife. If you’re released from custody, the court is concerned you would approach your wife again and concerned you would bring great harm to her or kill her.”

The judge also cited a constitutional law in Silva’s native Brazil that prevents its citizens from facing extradition to the United States as reason to deny him bond as a potential flight risk. The prosecuting attorney argued that Silva “has no ties to the community and his family is in Brazil. Once he gets to Brazil, it’s over. They will not send him back to the United States.”

Frank Smith, appearing on behalf of Silva as his business attorney, said the fighter has an IRS garnishment placed on him right now and that Silva has no available money until his next scheduled fight. Silva is booked to face Ovince St. Preux at UFC 171 on March 15, and Smith said that the fighter could stand to make in the neighborhood of $140,000 if he won that fight, plus the potential for other bonuses on top of it.

“If he doesn’t fight in Dallas, he’s broke. He needs to be in this country and be in Dallas to go forward,” Smith said.

So far, the UFC’s only official statement on Silva came late Thursday: “This evening, we were made aware of a situation involving Thiago Silva. We are in the process of gathering the facts and have no further comment at this time.”

But on Friday morning, UFC President Dana White told TMZ Sports that Silva would never fight for the promotion again.

No new court date has been set for Silva, who also faces a count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and a count of resisting arrest without violence. The court proceedings were streamed live by South Florida’s SunSentinel.
This guy is seriously fucked. When he first came to UFC, I thought he was promising and could be like Wanderlei, but seems like he pissed his life away. Shame

At one point he was my favorite fighter together with Lyoto Machida.

I don't feel sorry for him at all.

Anyone watching Fight Night? Every single fight a decision so far, this card MIGHT set a new record after 169.

I only watched the main even, which was good. Its a shame Machida had one leg injured(broken apparently), but he was still so much faster then Mousasi.

Good fight overall and it could have ended in a finish in the last for Machida. Hope he heals up quickly, another fight and then the title shot for the Dragon

I knew Machida vs Mousasi was going to be boring. Mousasi has always fought like that, he didn't take much damage but I didn't think he could figure out Machida. I actually thought Mousasi had the advantage in the grappling department being the larger fighter (that sweep he hit right after they hit the ground was sweet).

Anyways, pretty bored wit UFC lately. Cards have mostly been sub par.

Cards have been pretty dull, yes. Buy that's because there are so many of them, so I won't compain. It's up to the fighters to show more, but it feels like there's so much at stake all the time that the fighters won't loosen up.

I thought Machida vs Mousassi was gonna be a fight of the year candidate. How wrong I was lol.

He didn't figure Machida out, he was always one step behind him and his lucky he has such a great chin, most guys would have been lights out from that head kick.

Mousasi himself says so:

Quote:
"He was always a step ahead," Mousasi said at the post-fight press conference. "I just couldn’t get started."

Right after the fight was over, Mousasi knew he had lost the bout. One of the judges had it 50-45 in favor of the Brazilian, but he would have scored the bout a little closer.

"I don’t know about the scoring," he said. "Maybe I had one round, maybe two."

Mousasi earned the "Fight of the Night" bonus, but drops to 1-1 under the Zuffa banner. "The Dreamcatcher," who last fought in April of 2013, doesn’t blame ring rust in his loss.

"Rhythm always helps, but I felt good in the fight," said Mousasi, when asked if the time away from the cage played a big part in his loss. "I don’t think so."

He hurt him with the last one

This means a lot for Machida, Mousassi is no joke and he's also a LWH who's dropped so he was probably bigger than Machida. Other MW's are gonna feel Machida's size and strength.

Only problem with Machida is that he doesn't attack enough. I know that he's a counter fighter and very good at it. But I think he should try to be a bit more active. So he doesn't get losses like the ones against Rampage and Davis. When Machida fights, he other fighter always has the "octagon control", he must even that up a little bit.

Chris Weidman is dull, so I hope Belfort wins.

Imagine Machida vs. Belfort

Yeah as far as fighting smart, his tactics pretty much ensure a victory 99% of the time in the sense that he won't loose a "street fight ". But sadly UFC scores who stands in the middle of the octogon also, so he needs to step up more.

He is starting to do that, in the later rounds when his opponents start to get tired, i think Mousai was a good testing platform for him.

Machida vs Belfort will probably finish in less then 2 rounds with Belfort walking into one of Machida's kicks and getting knocked out.

Machida vs Weidman could prove more interesting in my book. The later is more reserve and could give him a real challenge.

Anyway i do hope Belfort wins the belt and Machida sends him to Jesus

Machida definitely created good angles for attack and kept Mousasi at bay. But this bit of stats might surprise you guys: Mousasi actually landed more strikes.

Honestly, I think its another lacklustered card.

The Cummings thing they are trying TOO hard to market, with all those cry stories, the shove, all that shit. Otherwise no one would care. And the whole story about how he got the call he was in drive through line of Starbucks, yeah right
