Been a fan of Palhares for a while now. I hope he can continue to improve. I think he has the ability to be fdangerous for anyone. I have laughed when people say he wouild get schooled on the ground by Maia. Perhaps Maia has better level BJJ, but Palhares is a dangerous black belt, with a frame like a gorilla. His strength helps his BJJ so much. Nightmare for anyone on the ground.
