I dont buy what his coaches are selling and dont even think his guilt is debatable. He obviously deserves disciplinary action but I think firing him was harsh.

So, you know Palhares very well and you know me very well too, isn't it? Come on, man, this is not about me.

You certainly missed what I had to say about Palhares here:

It happened I re-watched this particular fight and revised my POV on Palhares blowing this time. I am often wrong but I am far from being an unfair person by will.

Anyway, you're pink for some reason.

To everyone saying that Rousimar does this on purpose, you're seriously grasping at straws. Does he do it? Yes. However you have absolutely no idea of his intentions.

His coach said it, "Rousimar is simple" - If that was coming from someone as close as his coach, then the extent of his retardation would likely be uneclipsed by anyone else in MMA.

At the moment Rousimar is on par with Filho towards the end of his career - mentally not all there but still a beast in the cage/ring.

He has held submissions too long in the past but after watching the timed video, this really wasn't that bad and he certainly doesn't deserve to be cut for it, but then again this cut is coming from a guy who gives a guy a slap on the wrist for a joking tweet about rape (Forrest), then fires another a month later for a rape joke (Miguel) and then only one week later makes a fucking rape joke himself.

Dana is a hypocritical tool, a walking contradiction and I just wish he'd retire already.

Also kudos to everyone mentioning guys literally being dragged off unconscious bodies in order for them to stop.

Murilo Bustamante has gone online saying Palhares repeatedly injures partners in training with his submissions...

...make of that what you will.

His camp says it was an issue in the past, but they worked on him and the problem in training is fixed.

Quote:
"I can attest to the fact that Rousimar is a very simple, humble and well-meaning person," Davis said. "This is not malice but instinct, nature of the beast.

"That said, we need to keep on working on it. Rousimar used to hurt people in training, but he has become very controlled now. Now we need to work on the fights, work on keeping him conscious rather than just automatic."

Bustamante said this-

Quote:
"I can say this - nobody ever defended him as much as I did every time he made a mistake like this. In the beginning I thought it was because he was naive or had too much nervous energy during the fights.

"But then he caused a lot of incidents inside my academy during his camps and I changed my mind. I got tired of seeing how he hurts people so often when he is sparring, especially when he has a fight coming up. We used to argue every time it happened, so we argued a lot.

"That was a reason - together with his nonsense excuses every time he lost a fight - that our relationship started to get bitter. I actually hired a psychologist to help me with him but, as we have seen, it didn't work."
Doesn't sound resolved to me...

He's talking in past tense the whole time, but I guess that's cos Toquinho is no longer training with Murilo.

Yeah I realise that, still outlines a history of that behaviour.

Dunno if it'd been discussed before on here, but found it interesting.
