Ex-UFC Fighter Assuerio Silva In Serious Condition After Shooting

Assuerio Silva, a 38-year-old who went 0-3 while competing for the UFC, has been shot numerous times according to a report by the Parana Online.

Silva is in serious condition after a long-time training partner, Robson Freitas, shot him five times on Tuesday.

Silva (15-8) last fought in 2009, falling to Geronimo dos Santos. Hus his brief UFC stint, he lost to Tim Sylvia, Brandon Vera and Cheick Kongo.

The report states that Freitas has yet to be arrested, but that he made several threats on Silva’s life before the shooting.
