"Although he is new inside the UFC octagon, and very hungry to make a mark, his MMA record speaks loudly that he is no joke and someone I should be concerned about. I am taking this very seriously and respect his camp very much. I know that Falcao will prove to make this a great war. He will be looking to take off my head, and I will be looking to take off his head."
UFC veteran Alessio Sakara knows he'll be in a war with tough promotion sophomore Maiquel Falcao when they meet at UFC on Versus 3 on March 3 in Louisville, Kentucky. In his Octagon debut, Goncalves dominated Gerald Harris both on the feet and on the ground en route to a unanimous decision victory. Sakara hasn't seen action inside the cage since March 2010, when the former Italian boxer was set to take on Jorge Rivera (twice). Unfortunately the bout never materialized as Rivera pulled out the first time with injuries and Sakara pulled out the second time with flu-like symptoms. Let's hear some early predictions, Maniacs. Who takes this one? "Legionarius" or "Big Rig?"
