Thiago Silva has reportedly been apprehended by in Fort Lauderdale following an incident at a jiu-jitsu school that led to a standoff at Silva's home. The report claims that Silva was involved in a dispute of some kind at Pablo Popovitch Mixed Martial Arts Academy in which he allegedly threatened people in the school and was apparently armed. Silva then reportedly left the scene and headed to his home in the city, where he barricaded himself inside. He ended up surrendering to authorities from the Broward County Sheriff's Office. A S.W.A.T. team was reportedly called to the scene. No injuries were reported at either incident.
UFC officials were not immediately available for comment. Silva's next scheduled fight is at UFC 171 next month against Ovince St. Preux.
