According to his manager Marcelo Brigadeiro, who sent an open letter to minutes ago, the promotion decided to end his contract due to some legal problems, when he got in a fight at his hometown, in 2002.

I call BS.

A fight in 2002 affects him being cut?

Hard work is the only real PED.

Prospects -- Doo Hoo Choi, Ashlee Evans Smith, Mickey Gall, Sage Northcutt, Thomas Almeida, Yair Rodriguez, Lorenz Larkin, Robert Whittaker

Wow... Hire him in 2010 and then fire him for something he did in 2002.

Epic foresight there, Zuffa.

Yeah, I'm not getting all the comments about him 'getting his life in order' other than him dealing with a court case over a 9 year old 'street' fight or whatever it was.

(see what I did there?)
While Falcao can wreck shop with a lot of fighters out there he'd have a pretty hard time against Anderson with his T-rex arms.

Wow, I don't know about you guys, but this strikes me as mildly significant.

Strange one...

I was actually looking at his record the other day, and its god damn impressive.. Its must be some serious shit that he got involved in for him to be released.

He will never be a champion because of his behaviour anyway. He is a psycho, not a fighter.

Well this is real sad, I was so curious about how well he would do in the UFC & the guy had a very exciting style.

I'd say Zuffa have done this in the interest of Falcao, not out of dislike for Falcao. They'll take him back as soon as he's ready.
