South Florida MMA fighter makes court appearance

Posted: Updated:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Thiago Silva, the South Florida MMA fighter accused of a domestic dispute and a tough take down with police, faced a judge Friday.

Many of Silva's friends attended his court hearing in Fort Lauderdale. The courtroom was reportedly crowded with his supporters.

The Judge set Silva's bond for $25,000. Silva was also ordered to wear an ankle monitor and is not allowed to have contact with his ex-wife, who confirmed her side of the story in court Friday.

Silva has been behind bars since February after he allegedly threatened his ex-wife with a gun outside an Oakland Park gym.

According to police, Silva barricaded himself inside his home with a weapon for hours before he was placed under arrest.
