The UFC has announced they have officially terminated the contract of Thiago Silva.
“The Ultimate Fighter Championship has terminated the contract of Thiago Silva, effective immediately,” the statement read.
Silva was arrested late Thursday night on a series of charges. He remains in a Florida jail after being held without bond.
The fighter was expected to compete against Ovince St. Preux next month from Dallas.
Silva went into a Brazilian jiu-jitsu gym on Thursday and made threats before returning to his home and barricading himself in. Florida law enforcement officials called in the SWAT team before Silva finally surrendered without anyone being hurt.
