UFC Veteran Assuerio Silva Shot Five Times, Currently in Serious Condition




Some shocking news out of Brazil today, as it has been reported that UFC veteran Assuerio Silva was shot five times outside of his gym in Curitiba, Parana and is currently in serious condition at a nearby hospital.

According to multiple sources, the incident occurred on January 29th and came following a dispute with Silva’s former training partner, Robson Freitas, who had allegedly been threatening Silva for some time over issues that have yet to be disclosed. Oddly enough, Freitas has not been brought in on any charges as of this write up.

Silva is perhaps best known for his trio of UFC fights against Tim Sylvia, Brandon Vera, and Cheick Kongo between 2006-2007, all of which he suffered defeats in. Holding notable victories over fellow UFC veterans Fabiano Scherner, Alessio Sakara, and Igor Pokrajac, the 38 year-old Silva has not competed professionally since October of 2009, where he suffered a quick TKO defeat at the hands of Geronimo Dos Santos. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Dos Santos would be the one-time UFC hopeful who was forced to pull out of his scheduled UFC 153 match against Gabriel Gonzaga when his pre-fight medical exam revealed that he had Hepatitis B. Silva also competed under the PRIDE and Jungle Fight banners, where he compiled a 6-2 record including a victory over Valentijn Overeem.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Silva and his family in this difficult time.

Wow, heavy news. I hope the shooter is convicted and Assuerio heals up.

What happened to the days of two guys fighting it out and that was that? Now everyone is just shooting and stabbing everyone.

Ain't that the truth. You never know when the diminuitive person that no one fears is going to be fed up and snap. Tough guys aren't bulletproof. Even though it isn't right to go nuts and get violent, it is a definite possibility to happen in this day and age.

That being said, I don't know anything about this situation with Silva so I was just agreeing in general.

That and everyone is so mentally weak these days. They get beat up and want to come back and stab, shoot and jump people as if it proves how tough they are.
