Maiquel Falcao vs. Tom Lawlor Targeted for UFC 134 in Brazil

MMA Junkie reports that another hard-hitting Brazilian will get the chance to fight in their home country when Maiquel Falcao meets TUF alum, Tom Lawlor at UFC 134: Rio, this August. Falcao hasn't seen action since his UFC debut in November when he made an example of Gerald Harris and sent him packing from the UFC. Lawlor, meanwhile, will be coming off an even longer layoff, with his most recent fight taking place last October where he out-wrestled Patrick Cote for a decision victory, which, like in the Falcao-Harris fight, saw the loser released from his UFC contract.

Maiquel Jose "Big Rig" Falcao Goncalves (26-3)
Win Gerald Harris - Decision (Unanimous) UFC 123
Win Wendres Carlos da Silva - TKO (Punches) AGF
Win Daniel Ludtke - TKO (Knee and Punches) MAFC 2
