Ccf Bushido Signs Maiquel Falcao To Three Fight

Quote:
Following his release from the UFC, the CCF Bushido organization has now officially signed Maiquel "The Big Rig’’ Falcao 26-3 to an exclusive Canadian contract and is set to tear up Canadian soil in the Sept show of CCF bushido.

“We signed a three fight deal for him and are super excited to watch an athlete of this calibre fight under international rules this is a big step up in notable fighters as the CCF bushido has also signed to exclusive contracts,” said CCF Bushido officials.

Notable fighters such as Lorenzo “The Borg’’ Bogomeo, 5-3-0 and the heavy handed female striker Kaitlin young 4-5-0 are both part of the newly acquired CCF Bushido roster as well.

“We are not like the other organizations in Canada, we support our fighters on our roster, and we have a roster which is different than a couple other shows. I think we are the only ones with a roster of worldwide talent. If they have to take a fight on another show then so be it, they can fight in the us, Brazil, Japan where ever cause they got to pay bills,” said officials.

“No need in pretending to be as big as the big show. Just need to help these guys signed make a living and get the quality fights they need to go back to it. That’s why we have a Zuffa release clause in the contracts it only makes sense. I think we are the only ones, take note Rafaello Oliveira was scheduled to fight called and said Zuffa wanted him, well then the main conversation was go win...” said Pasqualino Santoro.

No initial word was given as to when we can see Falcao return to action.

SWEET! Falcao now gets to fight under PRIDE rules, where he will likely soccer kick some of my fellow Canadians for everyone's enjoyment.

I'm not saying its true. I'm just saying a lot of people have reason to believe he may or may not have beaten the shit out of a woman in brazil. What is not speculation is that he was arrested for it.

Hell of a fighter.. But he has some demons..

I don't know if he did it or not. I'm just not so sure that the UFC should be in the position of judging someone like that without putting themselves in a position where they could be called hypocrites.

First of all, they make a living through a sport that is based on fighting. Violence. But let's put that one aside, and look at one of their bigger stars instead. Rampage went on a rampage and allegedly caused a woman to lose her baby. I don't know if it's true or not, but this is what they to have happened. Instead of getting the boot out of UFC - he gets legal help and the sympathies from the president, Dana White.

Falcao hits a woman (if true) and he gets the boot? Seems a bit fishy to me, to be honest. Why should Rampage get all the help he can get, while Falcao gets the boot. At least they could be consistent with these things.

I guess my point is that for me, I'm fine whether they kicked him out or not. It's a decision I can't have a say in anyway. But at least be consistent with what you do your fighters. It's just not really fair.

As for the demons, I think a lot of fighters, at least back in the day, used to have them. A Gracie comes to mind, but there were more.

Just this one as I'm not really up to date with neither the Falcao nor the Jackson case.

Especially as an organisation that promotes combat sports they can be and act against violence outside the octagon. In the octagon the violence is canalised, regulated and both fighters fight consensual, they could stop at any time they wanted. Outside of the octagon that's usually not true. So there is a big difference although both involves violence.

I see your point, and I agree. BUT, if you're going to promote against violence, or illegal behavior outside the cage, then don't pretend you're an angel giving Rampage legal help and at the same time kick Falcao out of the UFC. That's just hypocritical. Especially since Rampage allegedly caused a woman to lose her baby, while Falcao allegedly just beat some woman up. Both are bad for the sport of MMA, I agree. But both deserve shit, not just one.
