(Sort of) Update: Falcao & Mena Kicked Off Fight Team for Role in Gas Station Brawl, Mena Still Hospitalized


(Rest assured, this woman felt mighty foolish when she realized that Falcao was just trying to swat a deadly scorpion off her shoulder.) 

On Monday, we showed you video example #3401 of rule #1 in Brazil: Always show the proper hespect. Whether it’s to a fellow opponent, an elder, or some chick(a) at a gas station who just shot you down, dishespect is something that will simply not be tolerated and will usually end with a 2×4 being placed upside your head. It applied to Tommy Boy, and therefore it applies to the streets of Brazil.

Unfortunately, former Bellator middleweight title challenger Maiquel Falcao was never taught the aforementioned rule by the pack of feral dogs that raised him from ages 6-17 on account of them not speaking English and all, resulting in the horrific beatdowns that both he (deservedly) and fellow fighter Kaue Mena (not so much) received in their wild gas station brawl over the weekend.

Fortunately for Mena, he appears to be slowly improving after undergoing surgery yesterday, but remains in a coma. Falcao’s wife took to Facebook to detail the situation, stating, “Great news. Our brother Kaue has shown improvements. We are following his recovery. Glory be to God. We will continue praying in earnest.” The bad news, however, is that both Falcao and Mena have been subsequently kicked off Renovacao Fight Team, where the former has trained for the better part of two years. Fight team leader Marcelo Brigadeiro released an official statement via Portal do Vale Tudo yesterday, the entirety of which is after the jump.

WEC Bantamweight Will Ribeiro in Coma After Motorcycle Wreck

Will Ribeiro WEC MMA

Terrible news from WEC.tv:

WEC bantamweight Will Ribeiro is hospitalized and comatose following an early morning motorcycle accident in Rio De Janeiro, according to Ed Soares, the fighter’s manager.
Soares said one of his assistants in Brazil told him Ribeiro was riding as a passenger on the motorcycle and was not wearing a helmet. The street they were riding on was slick due to rain. Ribeiro was rushed to a local hospital and underwent emergency surgery.
“My assistant said that the doctor said for sure that he (Ribeiro) has lost sight in one of his eyes,” Soares said. “He’s still in a coma. After surgery the doctor said there is a 50-50 shot that he will come out of it (survive).”

Ribeiro (10-2) last fought two weeks ago at WEC 37, where he was submitted in the third round by Brian Bowles; before that, he won his WEC debut with a split-decision victory over former bantamweight champ Chase Beebe at WEC 34. Tatame reports that Ribeiro may have lost "encephalic mass" (part of his brain) after the accident. Thoughts, prayers, whatever it is you do…
