Falcao, who returned to action two years after suffering a leg break and undergoing three surgeries, trains UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo at Nova Uniao in Rio de Janeiro.
Falcao is now set to defend his super lightweight championship (142.1 pounds) against Anderson Buzika, who won the interim belt with a unanimous decision win over Guilherme Sanchos in the co-main event.
