Video: UFC, Bellator veteran Maiquel Falcao attacked by 2x4 in wild Brazil street fight

Maiquel Falcao bit off more than he could chew. Check out the video for further evidence.

It's not every day you see something like this.

Recent Bellator Middleweight title challenger Maiquel Falcao got more than he bargained for at a gas station in Brazil. According to footage uncovered by Band Santa Catarina, the situation was instigated when Falcao approached a female at the counter. Whatever he said was not appreciated and Falcao played with fire by throwing his beverage at her as she walked away.

It all leads up to a huge confrontation where several other men showed up to defend the lady's honor, sparking a huge brawl. Falcao is seen blasting several people inside and then the film cuts to outside where the street fight continues, and this time with weapons.

Falcao's friend and fellow mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Kaue Mena (7-0 1 NC) is then leveled with a 2x4 and viciously battered with follow-up strikes and kicks to the head on the ground. According to Bloody Elbow, he is still in critical condition at the intensive care unit of Hospital do Coração.

Falcao competed once in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), defeating Gerald Harris before his release due to trouble with the law back home (shocking). He was picked up by Bellator and proceeded to win the season six middleweight tournament. In his most recent effort, he came up short against Alexander Shlemenko in a title fight, losing via second round knockout at Bellator 88 this past February.
