Quoteworthy:

"...(Gerald) said many stupid things to me, said he'd beat me easily, so I kind of liked it so I could punish him even more and I could make his suffering last longer. He tapped out on three different occasions, hiding it. It was a new thing for me, it was the first time I got three wins on the same bout. On the first round, he tapped out the first time when he was on the four points position, then he tapped out again in the end of the first round, when I got him on the rear naked choke with his body turned up, and on the third round he tapped out again on a rear naked choke."

Apparently the timekeeping error at the end of the first round is not the only controversy from UFC 123 -- at least according to Maiquel Falcao, who says his opponent, Gerald Harris, tapped out on three separate occasions but hid it well enough to avoid a stoppage from the referee. UFC President Dana White made it clear how unhappy he was with the fight and in fact outright released Harris just yesterday (Nov. 23). Falcao, being a newcomer and making his UFC debut, was given some rope and he'll get another chance to hang himself with it. What do you think of "Big Rig's" claims that Harris tapped out multiple times during the fight? Did you see anything "Big" Dan Miragliotta may have missed? For that matter, was Dana White too hard on both Falcao and Harris for their respective performances? Sound off!
