Palhares knew Pierce was tapping and that the ref was about to try break the hold, but he held on purposely because his IQ is the equivalent of his age. Anyone not legally retarded would have let the hold go when Pierce tapped.

Nobody denies that Palhares hold for too long and should have let go on his own earlier, but exactly for those cases when a fighter goes retard and endangers the other fighter's health, the ref should know what to do to stop the danger and this ref obviously didn't. There were two problems in that cage, Palhares AND the ref.

Well it is that he is dumb and that he comes from a world where the brazilian tap is prevalent. It is the refs job to protect the fighters; he needs to go in to break the hold when he is stopping a fight.

No I get it, you are right there. If it was Big John or Herb Dean, they would have been ready to break the hold before Pierce even tapped knowing how quick Palhares can apply the heelhook.

Surprised that Palhares beat Pierce that easily. I missed the fight though because I was working.

Pierce had maybe the most retarded gameplan to be fighting Paul Harris. Bad fight iq.

Palhares is a ******* gimp of the highest order.

Honestly, if you didn't watch any interviews or build up and you only saw his fights you would think he has a mental disability. It's only a matter of time until he seriously injures somebody due to holding on too long.
