The challenger, according to a recent report by MMAFighting.com, was recently involved in a street fight in Brazil that included her boyfriend, Edelson Silva, who is also one of Anderson Silva‘s coaches; and her sister, Suzana Correia.
According to MMAFighting’s Guilherme Cruz:
Correia was with her boyfriend Edelson Silva, who is also one of Anderson Silva’s boxing coaches, and her sister Suzana Correia at a hotel in Rio de Janeiro. They asked for a taxi to go out for dinner, but decided to eat at a restaurant across the street as soon as the taxi arrived.
The taxi driver, Cleonardo de Freitas Alves, wanted to charge them anyway, and that’s when everything started.
According to the UFC fighter, Alves threatened to grab a gun at the glove compartment and got into a fight with Edelson Silva. A video footage also shows Alves throwing a trash can at Silva, who tried to punch him several times.
Thus far, there has not been any public comment from UFC officials, nor has there been any indication that Correia’s shot at Rousey is in any sort of jeopardy.
