Bellator will crown a new middleweight champion Thursday night.
Alexander Shlemenko and Maiquel Jose Falcao Goncalves will square off for the vacant middleweight title on Feb. 7 at Bellator 88.
Maiquel Falcao earned a shot at the Bellator middleweight title, while Jessica Aguilar scored a victory over Megumi Fujii at Bellator 69 on Friday night.
Maiquel Falcao survived Andreas Spang's signature left hook to dish out a thorough beating at Bellator 69.
Save for an illegal knee that cost him a point, the Brazilian vet was flawless ...
Maiquel Falcao chose intelligence over bravado.
Andreas Spang values his personal space.
The Bellator 69 weigh-ins are in the books, making Maiquel Falcao vs. Andreas Spang and Megumi Fujii vs. Jessica Aguilar official for Friday night.
Shoving Maiquel Falcao is not an act most men would attempt, but Andreas Spang had no reservations about putting his hands on “Big Rig” last month.
It took Maiquel Falcao a little longer to make weight than his opponent, but the Brazilian got the job done on his second trip to the scale.
The first round of Bellator 69's official fighter weigh-ins are in the
books, and all but one of four co-headlining tournament fighters
successfully made weight.
