NBC 6, which first broke news of Thiago Silva’s Thursday night incident involving his wife, posted a video of the now-former UFC fighter being taken into custody.
Silva was asked why he did what he did, responding, “She want my money. She want my house. She want my money.”
Since all of this has gone down, the UFC has terminated the contract it had with Silva and the fighter has been held in police custody without bond. The judge ruled he was a flight risk to try and leave the U.S. and return to Brazi, his native country.
Check out the video below to see Silva being taken into the jail and hear what he had to say:
