Falcao signs with Bellator

Quote:
Maiquel Falcao, one of few fighters to win his UFC debut and then be released, has found a new home.

The Brazilian middleweight powerhouse was signed by Bellator, the promotion announced on Saturday night.

Falcao's one and only UFC fight was memorable for the wrong reasons, as he came to the organization behind big expectations as an explosive striker but ended up out-pointing Gerald Harris in a UFC 123 fight that was short on action. Afterward, UFC president Dana White criticized the win, memorably pointing out that "this isn't the Ultimate Staring Competition, it's the Ultimate Fighting Championship."

Less than a month after that win, Falcao was arrested in Brazil on a warrant stemming from a 2002 incident, and due to his outstanding legal issues, the UFC dropped him.

Since the release, Falcao has won two of three fights, and his career record stands at 28-4 with 23 TKOs. Just last week, he needed just 75 seconds to earn a first-round TKO over Douglas Del Rio.

Bellator did not immediately announce a date or opponent for Falcao's organizational opener, but he's clearly a welcome addition to a division headlined by champion Hector Lombard.

Lombard vs Falcao would be interesting

Yep. Huge signing; I'm surprised there isn't more interest. If Lombard beats Falcao it will validate him as a top 10 MW and he would deserve to be fast tracked (two or three) fights to fight Silva if he were to go to the UFC.

Personally, I'd pick Falcao if/when they fight. The dude has the fastest hands I've seen outside of the lower weight classes and Silva.

Lombard still by KO or even sub, Falcao is really good but he has been stopped by maldonado and someone else standing and recently subbed.

Good signing, but he didnt really have enough of a chance to prove himself as a top ten MW in the UFC. He beat Harris (the same guy that lost to Nick Ring), and then he was let go. A win over a can crusher like Lombard wont make him top ten and the same goes for Lombard with a win over Falcao.

He got into some trouble back in Brazil, that had him facing possible jail-time - but that's in the past now.

Bellator is also in the US you know
