Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

And Now They’re Fired: Maiquel Falcao and Paul Daley’s Legal Troubles Earn Them the Bellator Boot

(Pictured: The man Maiquel Falcao should have never done f*cked with.) 

Here’s some unsurprising news: Due to their ongoing personal/legal troubles, Paul Daley and Maiquel Falcao were officially released from their Bellator contracts yesterday. While there are many things to take away from this decision, we think the most important one is that someone finally figured out how to break a Bellator contract without being sued. QUICK, EDDIE, TAKE TO THE STREETS!

You might recall that we slightly jumped the gun on Daley’s release after it had been reported that he was involved in a bar brawl (or “pub pugilistic” as they are known in London), the legal repercussions of which prevented him from entering the U.S. and competing under the Bellator banner. But in hindsight, we’ll just chalk up that previous article to our keen sense of premonition, pat ourselves on the back and order another Glen Garioch neat.

Falcao, on the other hand, found his legal trouble in the form of a wild gas station brawl (or “Thursday” as they are known in Brazil) that left his friend and fellow MMA fighter Kaue Mena hospitalized to this day. Seriously, join us after the jump to hear the “good news” on how Mena’s recovery has been going.

(Via The Sun Daily/Google Translate):

The doctor of Balneário Camboriú, Hugo Sérgio Pretto did some exams on the MMA fighter Kauê Mena that remains hospitalized since the street fight in a gas station. Stimulated, the fighter responded by squeezing the doctors hand and moving his eyes.

Despite the responses, the situation of Kauê remains critical. According to Pretto’s research, the fighter have internal bleeding and lost a lot of brain mass. It was needed to remove the top of his head through surgery, due to his brain’s swelling. 

And all this because Mena chose to be friends with a piece of human trash like Falcao. Truly a sad day for the mediator friend, indeed.

Whether or not the mystery men involved in the brawl have been apprehended/charged yet remains to be seen — the same goes for Falcao. We will continue to update you on the situation as information is made available.

You associate yourself with the likes that hits women right after hitting women well, you'll be dealt your comeuppance sooner or later.
Sooner in this case. I hope he has learned his lesson. Godspeed. Better judgment next time.
