UFC Fighter Allegedly Tries To Kill Woman In Car

Former UFC bantamweight Raulian Paiva has been arrested and charged with domestic violence, according to a report from Globo Esporte. The accusations, made by his wife, include physical and psychological abuse, as well as death threats. The police chief in charge of the case said that Paiva’s wife claimed he had threatened to kill her and throw her things out on the street, and that he had physically and psychologically assaulted her three days prior to the incident. Paiva has denied the accusations, stating on his Instagram that “the fighter who hit his wife was not me” and that “everything’s all right here.” Paiva was released from the UFC in 2021 on a two-fight losing skid and has a professional record of 21-5.



“Hey guys, good evening. I’m recording this video because of some news that came out and people are mentioning me and asking me about it. So to answer everyone’s questions regarding the news about a UFC fighter who hit his wife, that fighter was not me, all right? Thank god, everything’s all right here. I’m home with my family and everything’s OK.

The threats and assault (accusations) are lies. We had an argument and in a moment of fury, my wife went to the police station in the heat of the moment and filed a report. We sorted it out and are all right now.”
