Earlier this week it was reveled that all charges were dropped against Thiago Silva. The Charges he faced were steaming off a police standoff in February,the charges included aggravated assault and battery, sending threatening texts and resisting arrest without violence against ex wife Thaysa Kimiji.
Dana White has also now confirmed that Thiago will now be welcomed back into the UFC. According to the Blackzillians he hopes to return to the cage in January.
Thiago Silva sat down recently for an interview with the MMA Hour (via MMA Fighting) and opened up on the whole incident. Reveling that all his legal problems were a result of his ex-wife was bitter and upset that by his refusal to give her money. During the interview Silva also announced that he and his girlfriend are also expecting their first child together.
“Here the thing. I didn’t do nothing. She said I pointed a gun at her, I tried to hurt her. I didn’t point any gun, I didn’t try to hurt her, you know? I wanted divorce, she wanted money, I didn’t want to give the money, she set me up, that’s the truth. I just wanted the divorce. I didn’t want to stay with the girl anymore. She wanted a lot, she asked for a lot of money to sign the divorce. I said no, she set me up.
“That’s it. I think if I was in his position, I would’ve done the same, because he didn’t know what’s going on. So I didn’t blame him. I had to be patient… because I knew the truth. Like I said, I had to be patient. There was nothing I could do. You gotta be patient. You don’t want to think stupid things, you know? If you know the truth, you know the truth is going to come out. It’s very simple.”
“The truth is they didn’t find no proof. I never pointed any gun at my ex-wife, I never tried to hurt (her). Everything she said was a lie. So that’s the truth. The state, they couldn’t prove another thing, so that’s the truth. I’m just glad the truth came out.[The UFC] trust me, they knew I didn’t do nothing, so they gave me my job back. So I’m very glad for this.”
