I'm with some of you guys, it's just too dangerous and bad for the organization/sport to let a guy like that fight there anymore. It's been at least twice now that this has happened and he has a history of doing it during camp/training.

******* dana white, doesn't know how to make a good decision if it smacked him in the face. Jesus let's just turn this into sambo without strikes or submissions while we are at it.

Good, both guys were dry and any submission would hurt long before injury. Any grappler... Like Rousimar... Knows this. Prick.

Very good decision by the UFC in my opinion, this isn't the first time and obviously Palhares does'nt get it.

If Palhares would of went on to damage another fighter permanently because of this stupidity the UFC would look incredibly bad for keeping this can around. No reason to hold onto him any longer.

Did the ufc fine him 50k or something? I dont get how he had 50k take. Away from him. Because he didn't get a bonus? Most fighters do not. It is not guaranteed money.

It is if it is the only sub on the card and a slick one at that.

It's still not a guarantee though, those bonuses are given at the discretion of the UFC, it wasn't his to lose.

Again, many people have had average finishes but since they were the only one to get that of it's type on the card they win it by default. Also Mike Pierce should be cut too since he lost this fight in 31 seconds so no way he deserves to stay just because he was the victim of grappling domination.

I say good riddance. He has a long history of holding onto submissions too long. There is never a reason to hold onto a sub like that even if there is bad blood. Holding onto a submission has only one intent & that's to injure.

I wonder if those who say Palhares should be cut, are the same ones saying oblique kicks and elbows on the bottom should be banned.

Newer mma fans would not have lasted long watching the early days of ufc.



More sad to see Palhares cut, than Okami or Fitch.

Wonder what the reasoning behind it was.
