Well when that fight results in recently being sentenced to 18 months probation on an assault charge... then apparently yes it does.

Such such a shame.
Posted this in the duplicate thread.

Gutted about Falcao. Hopefully we'll see him fighting again in the UFC in the not too distant future.

Epic foresight there, Zuffa.

He was arrested by the police just a few months ago, because of that matter. So it seems that only now it will be resolved in court.

Falcao is not as bad as you guys are making him out to be. He's a perfectly level headed guy except for basically one overblown incident. He's vicious but, he's from chutebox.

So cut ties with Falcao.

But keep Chael around who....was roided, guilty of money laundering, accuses Lance Armstrong of "giving himself cancer".

Yea....sure...makes sense I guess.

Yep, for some reason I don't think this is in the interests of Zuffa. As if they care about Falcoa. This is in the interests of Zuffa, as was keeping Chael around.

As long as Bellator gets him and puts him in there with Lombard, I am happy either way.

Seems a bit extreme ? if thats the right word for it. Surely they knew of this incident previously.

Anyone else see double standards? I seem to recall this guy named Chael Sonnen...

This. Falcao isn't all there in the head. I admit, he had some nasty skills, but it's clear as water that he needs to see someone. Anyways, EXCELLENT news. The best I have heard all week. Man, White and co are really stepping it up these days. I'm impressed
