Palhares' coach at BTT felt the need to employ a psychiatrist because of his brutality in training. Says it all really.

If you consistently hurt people in training, it'll be no different in competition. Some guys pride themselves on 'going hard' etc, but some guys do enjoy injuring. Seems Palhares is one of them, and I have no time for him.

Either way, he is extremely dangerous... and never seems to learn. I think the UFC is right in kicking him out.
I agree with your sentiment but the way he throws out his arms looks like acted innocence to me. Like "I didn't do it" or "it was like this when I got here". If it's just a zone thing how come he doesn't show the least interest at all to see if the screaming guy is ok?

Even Ken Shamrock looked like that when he twisted a guy's ankle a full 180. To all you guys debating the time here, Ken doesn't even gave that opponent any chance to tap at all. Or the ref to call it. And so should be a completely sportmanlike behaviour to you then?

I also think if he were given another chance it would never happen again. Because it was always intentional.
Why do I feel like you speak the thruth like some sort of oracle? Must be that awesome avatar..

I wonder if anyone will pick him up. If this was just a one-time thing like Daley, sure, other promotions would jump on him. But this guy is just sadistic. I don't think I've ever seen one of his fights were he didn't crank it after the tap.

I think other promotions would do well to blacklist him, to make sure another fool doesn't get something like this in his head. And fortunately, he's not a great of a loss to MMA, though he's probably the best leglocker in game. That's a little disappointing.

Rebney agrees with UFC's decison.

It would be for the best if absolutely every mainstream MMA outlet rejected him. Might teach the psychopath a lesson.

In continuation with this thread here's a video of R.P. apologizing to Dana and Mike Pierce. If you were Dana White what would your decision be.

The difference between hitting someone after they are knocked out before the ref calls it, and holding on to a sub after the ref called it is pretty clear and large.

You have to fight until the ref calls it, if the ref has not called the fight then it's your job to keep going. If a fighter has a guy pinned down against the cage throwing bombs on him and the ref jumps in and says stop/tries to pull you off/gets in the way of the fight, yet you still keep throwing shots, then that's a problem. If, however, you drop a guy with a clean shot to the jaw, it's perfectly okay to follow up with more shots until the ref jumps in, he could wake up when he lands, he might not be 100% out, your perception of how hurt he is might be off, you don't know - the fight is still going until it is called by the ref.

I was watching thinking I was going to see an apology, but he confirmed that he felt he did nothing wrong. From this alone, I would have to cut him, being he has no idea what he's been doing wrong all this time. It means he's either stupid or stubborn. Either one, is not a good defense.

I was really hoping the guy would have admitted fault, and admitted he let his emotions take over, but instead he said it's just a case of everyone misinterpreting what happened.

Unfortunately, the guy needs to learn a very hard life lesson.

If Rousimar Palhares is trying to make out he is misunderstood, maybe a little autistic as he and some on this forum are trying to make out, that is the worst possible excuse to have. At least admitting to be a macho sadistic bastard who is trying to make people fear him is believable and more importantly rational. Being a likeable guy with mental problems, who "doesn't get it" is the real nail in the Coffin to his career. That is really frightening.


I'd also be curious to know about his suspension for taking peds, did God tell him to take them, or did his trainers tell him they were sweets, innocent goodhearted fellow that he is. (That last sentence has a lot of sarcasm in it by the way)
