UFC must address its domestic violence issues after recent events

Silva had been released from his UFC contract on Feb. 7 after being arrested in South Florida and charged with two counts of attempted felony murder, one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count of resisting an officer without violence to his or her person.

His charges were later dropped and the company re-signed him earlier in September. 

On Friday, Silva's ex-wife, Thaysa Kamiji, posted two videos on YouTube. One apparently depicts Silva carrying a gun and searching his house for an unnamed person and the second claims to show him high on cocaine.

Based on new information received today in the form of video and audio evidence, Silva has been terminated from his UFC contract.
