Gerald Harris vs. Newcomer Maiquel Falcao Added to UFC 123 in Detroit

Gerald HarrisRising middleweight Gerald Harris will welcome heavy-handed Chute Boxe product Maiquel Falcao to the UFC when the pair are expected to clash at “UFC 123: Rampage vs. Machida” on Nov. 20 in Detroit.

The matchup was first confirmed by Tatame on Monday, with Falcao reportedly signing a four-fight UFC deal.

Harris (17-3) has reeled off three-straight wins over John Salter, Mario Miranda, and Dave Branch since The Ultimate Fighter 7 castmember was invited back to the UFC earlier this year. Harris was tapped as a late-replacement for last month’s UFC 118, but his bout was ultimately scrapped from the card.

Falcao (25-3) has fought almost exclusively in his native Brazil and rides a seven-fight win streak with all first-round stoppages into his UFC debut.

The UFC 123 fight card is headlined by former light heavyweight champs Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Lyoto Machida and also includes BJ Penn vs. Matt Hughes and Joe Lauzon vs. George Sotiropoulos.
