Thiago Silva Held Without Bail and Given Lifetime UFC Ban as Horrific Details Begin to Emerge in Aggravated Assault Case


(Courtroom feed of Silva’s bond hearing via sunsentinel.)

We don’t even know where to begin with the details emerging in the aftermath of Thiago Silva’s armed standoff with Florida Police, so let’s just jump right into it (via a police report obtained by MMAFighting):

-After appearing before a judge this morning, Silva was officially charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of resisting an officer without violence, and one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon stemming from a prior incident.

-The aforementioned prior incident took place on January 30th, 2014 between Silva and his ex-wife, Thaysa (the couple filed for divorce in December 2012 after 13 years of marriage but continued to live together), wherein Silva allegedly “picked up a revolver, pushed her onto the sofa, placed a revolver inside her mouth and threatened to kill her.”

-Two days ago, police were again called to the Silva residence by Thaysa when she arrived home to find her ex-husband inside, which violated the terms of the temporary injunction for protection she had filed against Silva. Thiago eventually left without incident (after initially refusing), but later texted Thaysa that he was “gonna f–k you up and you are going to die. I am going to hire someone to kill you and I am gonna move my girlfriend in.”

Rory Markham’s Latest Domestic Battery Arrest Produces Depressing New Mugshot


(Mugshot via cookcountysheriff.org. Thanks to CP reader Tim C. for the tip.)

In retrospect, Rory Markham deserved at least an honorable mention in our “Furthest Falls From Grace” Roundtable column. Once a promising welterweight slugger who earned knockout wins against Mike Pyle and Pat Healy during his six-and-a-half year MMA career, Markham has spent the last 12 months being arrested over and over again for assault in Iowa and Illinois. And now, just in time for the holiday season, Markham has gone and beaten up another civilian, adding another entry to his Depressing Mugshot Pictorial.

The above booking photo came from Rory’s latest arrest on Saturday, November 2nd, for “domestic battery/bodily harm, which is a Class 4 felony if the defendant has any prior convictions for similar offenses. We have no other details about the charges at this time. Markham is being held at the Cook County Jail with a bail amount of $250,000, and he is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow.

Yes, the guy who was once responsible for one of the cleanest head-kick KO’s in UFC history is now just another scabby meth-head-looking dude in county blues. So…how was your weekend?

Yup, Mayhem Miller Got Arrested Yesterday. Again. [UPDATED]

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Potato Nation, Jason “Mayhem” Miller has entered Kat Williams Mode.

Yes, after being arrested twice in the past two weeks for felony domestic violence and releasing a bizarre “apology” that channeled both Damian Marley and Buffalo Bill, the former Strikeforce and UFC middleweight has been arrested again, according to FOX Sport’s Mike Chiappetta. There are no details as of yet in regards to the newest charges Miller was brought in on, but we’re gonna take a swing at it and say domestic violence  [Ed. note: Well, close enough. See update below.]

UFC Lightweight Reza Madadi Sentenced to 1.5 Years in Prison For Role in Handbag Heist

“Handbag Heist” might be the sissiest sounding crime in the history of crimes committed by MMA fighters, but it doesn’t change the fact that UFC lightweight Reza Madadi is headed to a year and a half in Swedish prison for it nonetheless.

“Mad Dog,” who was arrested for stealing over $150,000 in handbags following a “dramatic car chase” (some of which was captured on the surveillance video above) back in May, was convicted of grand larceny yesterday. Aftonbladet.se has the details:

It was about five o’clock on the morning of 24 May, three men carried out the smash and grab-coup against the exclusive väskaffären Bottega Veneta on West Higgins Road in central Stockholm.

They should have brought with them bags of SEK 1.7 million. Surveillance film from the store shows the men smashing the door, enters and booms store.

Reza “Mad dog” Madadi and his friend were arrested at a workshop in Åkersberga by police just one hour after the attack. Martial Comforter stated in court that he was there to pick up a rental car.

In the workshop, the police found the cell phone, balaclava, a sledgehammer and clothes that were used in the burglary.

Photos: Nick Diaz Detained by Police Last Night, Probably for Some Bullshit That Wasn’t Even His Fault [UPDATED]

One night after being dominated by Georges St. Pierre at UFC 158, Nick Diaz and some of his homies were apparently stopped and detained by police. Diaz tweeted the above photo afterwards — with the caption “Fuck they got us :(  ” — but later deleted the post. However, two more photos from the incident remain on his Instagram account, which we’ve placed below…

Bellator Featherweight Tournament Winner Daniel Straus Arrested for Drug Possession, Driving on Suspended License


(Daniel Straus mugshot via…hmm…I want to say Jailbase, maybe?)

2013 has already gotten off to a very rocky start for Bellator featherweight Daniel Straus. Just a few days after he was forced to withdraw from his scheduled April 4th title fight against Pat Curran due to a broken hand, Straus was arrested this past Friday in Broward County, Florida, for driving with a suspended license, possession of over 20 grams of cannabis or three grams of synthetic cannabis, possession of MDMA (ecstacy), and drug paraphernalia possession or use.

The 28-year-old Cincinnati native (born Daniel Mason-Straus) was taken to the North Broward Bureau Detention Center in Pompano Beach on a bond of $2,200, and third-degree felony charges were filed yesterday in the Broward County Judicial Circuit Court of Florida. Straus is currently unlisted in the Broward Sheriff’s Office inmate database.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that Straus has run afoul of the law. As he told ESPN in October:

Battery Charge Against Chad Mendes Dropped; ‘Money’ Gets Off With Fine

The battery charge against UFC featherweight Chad Mendes was dropped by a judge yesterday. Mendes had been charged with sucker-punching a bar patron then fleeing the scene during a July 29th brawl at the Lacey Inn Bar in Hanford, California. Mendes faced up to six months in jail and a $2,000 fine. Instead, he plead no contest to a lesser count of public disturbance and has paid a fine and avoids jail time.

“I have said from the beginning that the ridiculous allegations published by the media were either false or incredibly sensationalized,” Mendes said in a statement. “(Monday’s) outcome proves it.”

There clearly was not enough evidence to support the charges against Mendes and he can now look towards his December bout against Hacran Dias on the UFC on FX 6 card.

Story of the Day: Nick Ring Saves Teenage Couple From Savage Attack in Calgary


(Criminals beware: This man will eff you up.) 

Here at CP, we really hate to keep reiterating the same point over and over again, but in this case, we feel the need to make an exception. As you should all know by now, Nick Ring is pretty much the epitome of masculinity. When he’s not making sweet love to a woman bald eagle style, he is more than likely patrolling the Canadian countryside on a horse made of crystal, handing out life lessons to those he happens to pass by. Though they won’t admit it, it is a common understanding that the sons of Ring’s opponents wish that he was their dad. A fun fact about Ring: he once held an opponent’s wife’s hand in a jar of acid at a birthday party. So basically, if you ever find yourself within Ring’s crosshairs, it is already too late.

Unfortunately, a group of ten or so rambunctious Canadian teenagers had never read Lord of the (Promise) Rings before they decided to attack a couple in front of the Calgary native, and boy did they pay for it.

The Calgary Herald has the story:

Calgary’s own UFC fighter, Nick Ring, who had just finished a yoga session and went to Starbucks to get a coffee (Ed note: Like we said, dude’s a BAMF), saw an assault across the street and he wasn’t about to let it go.

Ring – a 33-year-old mixed martial arts fighter who is gearing up for UFC 149 in Calgary next month – was leaving the coffee shop at Mac leod Trail and 94th Avenue when he thought he saw a group of about 10 people beating up a couple to steal the girl’s backpack.

“I did not like what I saw and I wasn’t going to stand around and watch that happen. It was a crime and it was completely wrong,” said Ring.

“I’m not going to let anything like that happen if I’ve got anything to say about it. Not a chance.”

More from this story after the jump.

Yeah, Arianny Celeste Got Arrested for Domestic Violence


(“Okay, maybe she didn’t actually hit me, but she was clearly trying to hurt my feelings.”)

Sorry for being late to the party on this one, but as you might have heard by now, UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste — real name Annie Schwartz-Wasserstein* — was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with “battery (domestic violence).” She was taken into custody by the Clarke County Police Department at 7:30 a.m., and later released on $3,000 bond before showing up halfway through the UFC 146 main card.

Your first assumption will probably be, “Whoa, she beat up Tiki?” But until more details surface, we can only speculate. (I mean, theoretically, she could have also choked a live-in personal assistant, right?) MMAJunkie passes along Arianny’s last few tweets before her arrest, which suggest she was on a collision course with disaster/hilarity:

Near midnight, she posted a photo of her herself in evening attire sitting at a table, with a caption that read: “Dinner at Mizumi,” referring to a new restaurant at the Wynn Las Vegas. A few hours later, she tweeted another photo of herself with a male companion who was kissing the side of her face, with a caption: “??! forever n always??” An additional tweet came around 3:30 a.m. with her making a crazy look and the caption: “I be going crayyyy ha hey bay bayyy.”

We’ll update you as soon as we know more. For the record, Dana White stated on Saturday night that the UFC has Celeste’s back and supports her 100%.

Jon Jones Once Got His Car Towed for Tokyo-Drift’ing Into a Strip-Club Parking Lot Like a BOSS


(Photoshop of Bones’s new sponsor via CrushCo)

There’s really not much to add after that headline, but the long version is this: Jon Jones’s DUI arrest wasn’t the first time his driving has gotten him into trouble. BloodyElbow has confirmed that the UFC light-heavyweight champ ran afoul of Albuquerque cops last fall for recklessly driving his Bentley on a suspended license:

Jon was pulled over for flying around a corner in his car and losing traction before pulling into the parking lot of a “fully nude club” (Fantasy World). The police pulled him over in the parking lot and ran his license, they then realized it was suspended and, as a result, Jones’ car was towed. The charges were dismissed in a March 8, 2012 trial.

The full police report is here, if you’re interested. The incident took place on November 24th, 2011, just 16 days before Jones’s UFC 140 title defense against Lyoto Machida, so it’s pretty damn fortunate that his impromptu drift-racing adventure didn’t turn into anything more serious. Still, skidding into a strip club parking lot on Thanksgiving Day seems like a perfect example of the kind of immature and wild behavior that was supposed to be in Jones’s distant past.
