The hits just keep on coming for Maiquel Falcao.
Just days after having his brains scrambled in the parking lot of a Brazilian gas station (see the gruesome video here), the Bellator middleweight has been kicked off the Renovacao Fight Team -- along with Kaue Mena -- for behavior inconsistent with that of a professional martial artist.
"Also, [I want to] make it clear that the attitude of these two athletes does not reflect the behavior of our entire team. We are known for being one of the most victorious teams in the world but also for being a true family of athletes and good men; suitable character and exemplary behavior is expected of true martial artists. The attitudes of Maiquel Falcao and Kaue Mena were not consistent with what is preached and practiced by me and my students, and it is not what is expected by our sponsors and business partners. I understand that as professionals and martial artists, [we] should not and cannot be associated with night life, fights and alcohol consumption. Our duty is to serve as an example for society and especially for children, who see us as heroes."
That's strike three.
Not only was he beaten senseless at the gas station and kicked off his team, but Falcao also got knocked out by Alexander Shlemenko in their 185-pound title fight at Bellator 88 back in February. The only saving grace was his ability to escape his most recent attack with minor injuries.
Mena is still hospitalized with a coma.
