    Skipping bail by skipping the country.

    in other words, they think its highly likely that he will leave the country and not show up to trial.

    Ex-wife: 'Paranoid' Thiago Silva turned 'violent' after cocaine use

    For the first time since his arrest, Thiago Silva's ex-wife is speaking out about the events that led to his shocking arrest.

    Thaysa Kamiji was married to the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight for eight years, but ended their relationship in late 2012 when she claims the "aggressive" Brazilian was "unbalanced" and subjected her to repeated assaults.

    From UOL Sports (via MMA Fighting):

    "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. 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."
    The cocaine use, Kamiji alleges, caused him to become "violent" in recent weeks.

    Silva was arrested in South Florida after an armed standoff with police (mug shot). He was detained and held without bond after the court deemed him a flight risk, as well as a threat to his community. You can access his police report here, as well as watch the video replay of his court appearance here.

    But there are two sides to every story.

    Attorney Scott Saul says Silva was drunk at the time he allegedly brandished a weapon outside the Pablo Popovitch academy in Oakland Park, but did "nothing serious" and thinks his wife's statement was taken "out of context" during her interview with police.

    Yeah I dont see many people messing with him in prison. The guy is the scariest looking guy in the lhw division imo.

    Jesus suffering fuck...

    Definitely deserved to be cut after this turn of events. Just reading the allegation that he put a gun in his wife's mouth was enough to make me feel wholly uneasy. The only semi-decent thing was that he didn't pull the trigger in that scenario or at the school. Still fucked up though.

    that is if he isn't killed in prison first
    May very well be. But I think that anyone would think twice before messing with him.

    Really hate this news. The two times I ran into Silva he was a really cool dude. Still kinda wanna give him the benefit of the doubt sadly. Hope he can get his shit together.
