So scary! Brazilian mixed martial artist Thiago Silva was arrested on Feb. 6 after he allegedly shoved a gun down his wife’s throat and threatened her life because he believed she was having an affair with an MMA instructor.

UFC star Thiago Silva is behind bars following a standoff with a SWAT team at his home on the night of Feb. 6. Thiago allegedly threatened students at a jiu-jitsu school when he confronted his wife about having an affair with MMA instructor Pablo Popovitch.

A police report obtained by TMZ revealed that  Thiago was furious because he suspected Pablo and his wife of having an affair. Thiago reportedly went to the center at around 8 p.m., began yelling at his wife, and allegedly told her, “You have ten seconds to bring Pablo outside and if he does not come out, I will go in the gym and start shooting everyone.”

The police report also revealed yet another alleged violent incident between Thiago and his wife. The fighter reportedly also accused his wife of cheating on Jan. 30 and he allegedly pulled out a gun and shoved it down her throat, telling her that he was going to shoot her.

After Thiago allegedly threatened his wife and Pablo, he then drove back to his home and barricaded himself inside as a SWAT team surrounded his home. The standoff didn’t last too long as Thiago knew he was cornered. He surrendered himself to police shortly before midnight.

Thiago remains in jail without bond after a judge dismissed the attempted murder charges and charged him instead with two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. Thiago was scheduled to fight at UFC 171 in March but at this time, it’s not looking like that’s going to happen.
