    Maiquel Falcao arrested in Brazil on assault charge.

    Post  payneNglory1 on Sat Dec 04, 2010 12:23 am

    Chute Boxe middleweight Maiquel Falcao – who recently debuted in the UFC with a victory over Gerald Harris - was arrested today in Pelotas, South Brazil by local police.

    Falcao was apprehended after giving an interview to Grupo Brasil de Comunicação. According to witnesses, there was no resistance.

    The arrest came as police fulfilled a Judicial Order related to corporal assault (’bodily assault’) .

    We will have more news about the situation as things develop in Brazil.

    News of the arrest comes via Portuguese news site Diaro.

    Fresh off his successful UFC debut over Gerald Harris at UFC 123, middleweight Maiquel Falcao has been arrested in his native Brazil on a warrant from a 2002 incident for allegedly assaulting a woman outside a nightclub, according to a translation of Diario Popular.

    Falcao is reportedly in jail after being arrested without incident following an interview while his lawyer files an appeal.

    Despite nearly submitting Harris before the opening round ended early, Falcao was criticized by UFC President Dana White for a tentative third round as he coasted to a unanimous decision win.

    If its from an incident from 2002, why has it taken this long to arrest him?

    I'd enjoy that. Great fight. Don't think it would make the 2nd round though. I think Palhares would sub him.

    Anyone know what Falcao is like on the ground? He clearly has great hands when he wants to use them, but can anyone see him hanging on the ground with the likes of Palhares? Who knows, he's with Chute Box so he could well be competant dealing with him.

    I think Palhares would beat him easily enough. He is very strong, maybe the strongest guy at MW and would throw Falcao around. Palhares has subbed BBs before with ease. I heard somewhere (can't quite remember where) that he used to give the likes of Arona trouble.

    not sure about being able to throw him around, Falcao was 2x brazilian national wrestling champion!!

    he is a BJJ blackbelt, but you know about these chuteboxe suspect blackbelts right....to be fair though he practically submitted harris in his last fight.

    I didn't know that. But to be fair Hendo is an olympian and I remember Palhares slammed him once or twice.

    Linhares was also a BB.

    Maiquel Falcao returned to the Cage this weekend, after getting CUT by the UFC, and needed only 30 seconds to stop Julio César Blilik with punches. “I’m sure that the end of this road leads us to the UFC again,” Falcao said after his ninth win in a row – eight of them in the first round. “We’ll beat up everybody and collect belts until we’re back to the UFC”.
