Thiago Silva's estranged wife withdraws restraining order, Silva back with Blackzilians

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Former UFC fighter Thiago Silva hasn't gone to trail on aggravated assault charges yet, but his wife has withdrawn her restraining order.

In a surprising bit of news, it seems that Thiago Silva's legal troubles have been somewhat alleviated. He is still waiting to go on trial for aggravated assault and battery and sending threatening texts charges, but his lawyer told Fox Sports that his estranged wife has withdrawn her restraining order. This has allowed Silva to return to training with the Blackzilians and teach kickboxing classes at Jaco Hybrid Training Center in Florida.

Silva's lawyer Scott Saul said that he is not going to try to get a plea bargain as he believes he can beat the charges. He also said that some of the stuff in the police report isn't correct:

"What made this so juicy in the beginning, that's not what the case is any longer," he said. "Why did that happen? What was written in the police reports is not exactly accurate."

Silva has been separated from his wife, Thaysa Kamiji, since late 2012 and both are seeing other people. He continues to wear an ankle bracelet as a condition of his bail following the February arrest. He was immediately released by the UFC after the arrest and Dana White has stated that he will never fight in the organization again.
