"Big Rig" is apparently trucking on back to the U.S.

Bellator Fighting Championships CEO Bjorn Rebney today announced that Brazilian middleweight slugger Maiquel Falcao will soon make his debut for the promotion.

Rebney made the announcement during the Spike.com-streamed prelims of Saturday's Bellator 54 event. Falcao and his management weren't immediately available for comment.

He'll dominate in Bellator, imo. Look out, Hector...

Not a bad pickup, notable name and record. Won't be in the current MW tourney as it is going on tonight, I believe.

Yep. Actually, it just wrapped up. The finals are now set.

I thought I read that he was subbed with a kimura in some under league after the ufc let him go due to domestic issues (allegedly). What happened to the world wrecker I saw kill Gerald Harris?

Glad to see Bellator signing Palhares's brother

Falcao will straight up murder Hector.

He was subbed by a world class black belt...no shame in that. He finished his other 2 fights in the first round.

Did he kill Harris? I heard it was a rather boring fight.

It wasn't the most eventful fight, but Falcao had an answer to everything Harris was giving. Also, this was the fight with the infamous early bell that possibly saved Harris from tapping at the end of the 2nd round (I believe it was the 2nd).

I seem to remember Falcao whoopin' that ass (Harris). Maybe I need to watch it again.

Yeah, that's a fair analysis...some people were disappointed with the pace of the fight though. Well, at least the people in the arena were booing anyway. That's par for the coarse though.

On a side note, this fight actually led me to a conspiracy theory involving the mics in the arena. During the fights, I have a theory that they've began using an equalizer to filter out the lower frequency sounds (boos), while leaving the midrange and higher frequencies alone (cheering). I saw this fight live and the crowd booed so loud that I thought they would riot. I watched the recorded fight on TV and although you could hear some booing, it was nothing compared to in person. All of the cheers are all generally picked up fairly well throughout the event.

That was mostly round 3, wasn't it? I remember Falcao playing it safe in the third and that pissed everyone off. Also, watch what you say about those mics, you wouldn't want 3 big guys showing up at your door to "discuss" this conspiracy theory.
