The fallen Taleb allegedly got physical with Silva at the Radisson Blu, which is a hotel the fighters were staying at during in the lead up to and after the event.
“He kicked me in the leg as I was sitting on the ground,” Silva said to MMA Junkie. “He said, ‘(Expletive) you, you’re a (expletive). You robbed me. You didn’t win that fight. You told the referee I was holding your gloves and then you got the choke.'”
Taleb would be restrained by his team before things went any further, it has also been reported that Taleb used homophobic slurs against Silva.
Silva would like the UFC to do something about Taleb, feeling that the fighter needs to be punished for his action.
“The UFC has to take notice,” Silva said. “He needs to be punished.”
There has been no punishment issued by the UFC at this time, plus neither Taleb or the UFC have commented on the accusations made by Silva.
