A brawl touched off between Maiquel Falcao and a group of men inside a gas station, spilled into the streets and resulted in a friend of Falcao's, Kaue Mena, being taken to the hospital in critical condition.
According to Band Santa Catarina, Renovacao Fight Team featherweight prospect and training partner to former Bellator tournament champion Maiquel Falcao, Kaue Mena, is in serious condition following an altercation outside a gas station in Southern Brazil.
From the video it appears that Falcao got into some kind of disagreement with a pair of women inside the gas station. Words were exchanged and he appears to push/slap one of them away. After that a host of men enter and begin fighting with Falcao and his friends. The fight spills out into the the gas station parking lot where one of the men fighting Falcao hits him with what appears to be a piece of wood.
A few seconds after that Kaue Mena is struck from behind by an assailant and proceeds to be punched and kicked mercilessly while unconscious. Mena is currently in serious condition at the intensive care unit at the Hospital do Coração. No arrests have been made in connection with the attack, but we'll be sure to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Worth noting, this isn't Falcao's first brush with extra curricular fistics. He was also picked up in 2010 for a 2002 charge of assault against an ex-girlfriend (although the arrest was apparently the result of a misunderstanding of the terms of his house arrest at the time). These charges eventually led to his release from the UFC.

From his past assault charges to his tendency to keep punching his opponents long after the fight has been stopped, Bellator middleweight Maiquel Falcao has always seemed like the kind of dude you’d cross the street to avoid. Unfortunately, new surveillance footage from a gas station brawl in Brazil provides even more proof that “Big Rig” is an out-of-control jackass.
Watch the news report above and you’ll see the following: Falcao approaches a woman at a gas station, then angrily swats her in the ear with what appears to be his wallet. The woman and her friend go outside for backup, and three men arrive to confront Falcao and his companion, undefeated MMA featherweight Kaue Mena. Falcao is sucker-punched, which kicks off a wild brawl that spills outside.
Some dude in a red jacket shows up with a 2×4, and hits Falcao over the head twice with it, which knocks him down (and possibly out). The same guy then cracks Mena in the face with the piece of lumber, and Mena falls backward, his head making hard impact with the concrete. A guy in a white shirt repeatedly punches Mena in the face, and kicks him in the head at least twice. Everybody involved leaves the scene before the cops arrive, leaving Mena’s unconscious body behind. Keep in mind, this all started because Maiquel Falcao struck a woman in public.
According to BloodyElbow, Mena is currently in serious condition at the intensive care unit at the Hospital do Coração, and no arrests have been made in connection with the incident. Falcao last competed in February of this year, when he was knocked out by Alexander Shlemenko.
