Erik Engelhart: Did everything go like you had planned for your debut on UFC?

Maiquel Falcão: The most important thing was my victory, but according to the game plan we’ve set, which was to hit so I could keep myself standing, I thought it was a good fight, despite I know I could’ve hit him more. I trained wrestling a lot to defend the takedowns and thanks God I was successful, here at Chute Boxe we are well assisted on wrestling and I have some experience on the modality, I’ve been joining some competitions.

EE: Did the fact that the referee did a huge mistake on the first round, finishing the fight before the regular time, disturbed you?

MF: It didn’t disturbed me because he (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.

EE: Did he tap out?

MF: He tapped out in 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.

Read entire interview...

--

Dana White largely concurs

"There were a couple of times there where Gerald looked like he was tapping," White said. "When guys get in those chokes and they do that half-tap thing, you hold that choke until the ref pulls you off or until the guy is out.

"I don't think he held the choke too long. We've seen cases in the past where the choke is definitely being held too long. This kid was in a nasty scrap, and Gerald Harris was doing these weird grabbing-the-hand motions. We were sitting there cageside going, 'Did he just tap?' Then you have to wait for the replay to see if they tap."

Falcão himself has a record of unfortunate cage behavior, including this early fight, where an unconscious opponent is beaten like a rented mule.

I just watched this fight about five minutes ago and he did not tap. Lastly, This Falcao character was almost as bad as Harris. It really was a shit fight outside of end of first round.

I think you think that because of the language barrier. I always think anything Aldo says is rude but when I hear the translation I just want to pinch his cheek....

Michael Falcon is lucky he won, or he would have been getting cut as well

Here we had a fighter so great that he nullified a decorated wrestler's wrestling, demonstrated top-level striking skills, and exhibited gorilla-like strength and power. That alone made the fight extremely interesting.Now, couple all of that with the fact that Harris appeared to have gained his wits about him following the near stoppage in the first around and looked to gain a little momentum to the point where you had to wonder if he would come back and steal the fight. I'd call that pretty exciting, friendo.

It was a shit fight.  I dont agree with Harris being cut but there was about 20 seconds of action sprinkled throughout 15 minutes of stall.

 But if Falcao is telling the truth about fake tapping, then Harris does deserve to be cut.

I thought I saw him tap once late in the second with the rear-naked choke.

He was a dick during the fight too. Held the choke too long, swung after the bell, back of the head shots, three or more fence grabs and a ton of shorts grabs.

That's cool. We will just agree to disagree.

seemed like he tapped in the first but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Too bad the time keeper shafted him on that choke.

Why would you hide your tapout?  Kind of defeats the purpose of tapping right?

um, no. you get someone to release or loosen a sub and then you get to continue.

Well um, since you're not supposed to stop until the referee stops you then that's HIS bad for loosening his grip.

You would think so, but if he doesn't let go then people make threads about him being a dirty fighter for following the rules...oops people already made those threads nm.
