UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva was in Curitiba, Brazil on Tuesday following the death of his aunt. Her name was not immediately available, but a source close to the fighter confirmed that the woman had raised Silva from his youth and that he thought of her as his mother. She passed away Monday.

Last weekend, Silva, widely considered to be the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world, cancelled a seminar at Miletich Fighting Systems in Houston. However, Silva attended the opening of a gym he co-owns with UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (Pictures) in Miami on Friday and Saturday. The incidents resulted in heavy criticism as some felt he had invented his aunt's illness.

According to the source, Silva was already in Miami for the opening ceremonies of his gym. He learned of his aunt's condition on Friday and reportedly tried to leave for Brazil on Saturday morning, but there were no flights. He then went to his gym for a few hours before flying to Curitiba in the evening.
