Not saying how far they took it was right in any way, but Falcao was looking for trouble and deserved a mild beatdown at least.
Sometimes in life you have to take the high road to avoid doing stupid things. It's always hard in the heat of the moment, but I feel like I would have analysed the situation, realised it was Maiquel Falcao and then gotten the **** out of there.

Yeah, they were protecting their girl/sister/female friend, but now (if justice is served) they won't be around to protect the women and children anymore. Now there's possibly no father figure on those households and a potential murder on their consciences. All because they couldn't keep their cool.

Responding like that is very short sighted.

So it's only up to the guys who swarmed to take the high road? Falcao is under no such obligation to not do stupid shit in the first place, because he's an mma fighter? Good luck preaching the high road to the hood.

As I said, beating the other guy who wasn't even at fault to the point of hospitalization and while unconcious is too far, but both parties were stupid, and thats what happens in the hood.

There is no guarantee that justice will be served, in fact it is quite unlikely in the developing world. I really hope they do get it because they deserve it badly. However, I've lived many years in India, Thailand, South America etc. and the cops most likely don't give a crap and see shit like this every day. If they actually identify the culprits it might even boil down to who can pay them off more. Heck you live in Thailand rt now, which is the relatively safest of the lot, how much justice do you think you'll get if you start shit in the wrong neighborhood?

The only "high road" in such places is to not start shit in the first place, give everyone respect by default and only fight as a very last resort in self defense. They don't care about mma creds, they'll just run across the street and bring back their knives, bats and worse.

I think a lot of guys are forgetting that Falcao is a HIGH LEVEL PROFESSIONAL FIGHTER. Anyone complaining that other guys used a board to beat them up needs to realize that Falcao and his buddy train on a daily basis to **** people up. I do agree however that they went too far with his friend though.

The law here in Portugal states that if you have a high degree on martial arts (any one) and enter a fight, you can be charged on attack with deadly weapon.

Are you sure that it's not an urban legend¿ Where I live that was what people used to say also, but actually reading the laws there was nothing in it and it proved to be an urban legend.

I do remember that Tyson's fists were categorized as deadly weapons. To some extent it is true.

Note to other poster. Even though Falcao instigated they were attacked by the group of guys first. These type of scenarios happen all the time with varying results. Always the same common denominator though...GIRLS & BRAVADO.

There is no law specifically stating a martial artists hands are weapons, but a judge has determined hands to be deadly weapons before:

http://offthebench.nbcsports.com/201...d-rage-attack/

Quote:
Meanwhile, in Coral Gables, Fla., it doesn’t pay to dwaddle at an intersection when the light turns green, at least when a professional MMA fighter is in the car behind you. Two pool men got into a road rage argument with Fernando Rodrigues (pictured) on Tuesday, that ended with Rodrigues, a Brazilian ju-jitzu fighter who served two tours in Iraq, allegedly pistol-whipping one of the men. Juan Uribe, in the face. Rodrigues also put Uribe in an MMA hold on the side of the road, and punched Uribe’s partner, Michael Caccavella, through the open window of Caccavelle’s truck.

Palm Beach Post:

He was a big guy. I didn’t want any part of him,” Uribe said Tuesday. “I don’t remember much after he hit me.”

Caccavella, who also was carrying a gun, said Tuesday that he came close to shooting Rodrigues in order to help his assistant.

“I was ready to shoot him and do everyone on earth a favor. I pulled the trigger, but realized I didn’t have one in the chamber,” said Caccavella, 54, of Lake Worth. “This could’ve ended really bad for everyone.”

Among the charges against Rodrigues, a Coral Springs resident, are three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon — his hands.

Rodrigues was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon: his hands and feet. Plus the gun, I’m assuming. He was jailed without bond. All of this despite the court appearance of Supergirl on Rodrigues’ behalf.

That guy in the red is a bitch when Falcoe gets hit and gets dazed and then drops one guy he stops the fight and then looks like gets a 2 x 4 and hits Falcoes friend in the back. Also try some ******* Tds shit my professor teaches a street takedown like every class u can't tackle a guy coming at u with a 2x 4.

Yes, you better don't!

After getting physically attacked by a football player for a red card and stabbing that player with a knife, a referee gets stoned and stabbed to death by a raging mob of spectators, then quartered with a sickle and finally his beheaded head gets placed on a spike in the middle of a football game:
