Let's be honest, Falcao didn't look great.
Falcao looked badass on the feet.. Most fighters would have been KOed 3 mins into the first, and Falcao actually managed to sweep the BJJ World Champ twice, that's pretty impressive in itself (the sweeping), now when one of the best BJJ practitioners in the world is in side control pulling a kimura, you are gonna tap.
If Braga tightens up his striking he's gonna be a really hard motherfu cker to deal with, considering he's 23, the sky is the limit. He trains Muay Thai at Evolve MMA with Yodchatri Sityodtong so i don't think it will be long til we see him in the big show.
