Maiquel Falcao
Bellator and UFC Veteran Maiquel Falcao was stabbed to death Sunday in Brazil. According to reports, the mixed martial arts fighter was found stabbed multiple times on a sidewalk in his hometown of Pelotas. He was transported to a hospital but died of the injuries.

Falcao lead a troubled existence that saw him compete once in the UFC - a win in 2010 - but end up released by the company before fighting for them again, reportedly due to his prior arrest for assaulting a woman. Falcao would go on to fight for Bellator winning three straight before losing a middleweight title shot against Alexander Shlemenko in 2013. His troubles away from MMA continued though, as he was accused of another assault on a woman. Falcao was 40-years-old. His career record stood at 40-20 with 1 no contest.
