UFC 123 Results: Maiquel Falcao Impresses For Two Thirds Of Win Over Gerald Harris

At UFC 123 Gerald Harris was meeting a man making his UFC debut for the fourth straight fight but in Maiquel Falcao he faced a man with a lot of experience in the Brazilian MMA scene. Falcao did not disappoint for the first two rounds, badly hurting Harris on multiple occasions and coming close to finishing a rear naked choke in both the first and second rounds.

Unfortunately, knowing he was comfortably ahead on the scorecards, Falcao chose to coast on his lead and not engage for the third round. Harris chased and tried to throw occasional punches but Falcao was not allowing him to close distance. Harris couldn't get anything done and the fans booed loudly.

Falcao rightly won the unanimous decision but needed a better showing in the third round to prove his worth over the long term. Hopefully such a talented guy will show how truly dangerous he is by fighting bell to bell in his next fight.
