Maiquel Falcao defeats Gerald Harris via Unanimous DecisionPosted on November 20, 2010, 10:44 PM by Anton Gurevich
Chute Boxe product Maiquel "Big Rig" Falcao made a successful UFC debut, by defeating Gerald Harris via Unanimous Decision. Despite the slow pace in the fight, Falcao managed to impress with a great takedown defense, submission game and striking, which forced Gerald Harris to go on defensive during the most parts of the fight.
Falcao got Gerald Harris in a tight Rear Naked Choke in Round 1, but the "Hurricane" was saved by the belt. Harris found himself in the same situation in Round 2, but this time he was able to defend the attempt, and find his way back to the feet. Third Round of the fight was a huge disappointment, as both fighters went on defensive, failing to deliver any damage to each other. This was a poor decision for Harris, as he was two rounds behind in the fight.
In the end, good performance by Falcao. Personally, I would love to see more of him, against a well-rounded striker. This way or another, "Big Rig" has plenty to give inside the Octagon.
