Undefeated MMA fighter Kaue Mena (7-0) remains in a Brazilian hospital after an altercation that involved Bellator fighter Maiquel Falcao (31-6 MMA, 3-1 BFC) turned violent.
Falcao's wife, Danielle, wrote on Facebook that Mena's condition is improving after surgery, though "his condition remains very grave." She asked friends and loved ones for their prayers.
"Great news," she wrote in her native Portuguese. "Our brother Kaue has shown improvements. We are following his recovery. Glory be to God. We will continue praying in earnest."
Police are looking into the assault, the report said. The owner of the fuel station said eight MMA fighters assaulted his employees this past year.
