I wasn't pissed he held it long. To me it appeared be looked right at the ref, seen the fight was ending and then cranked it again. That should get him cut imo.

Good move by the UFC. If it was Palhares' first, second, third, forth, fifth, sixth or seventh warning maybe don't cut him. However, the dude is just an idiot and I'm glad he's gone.

On one hand it sucks on the other hand Palhares is going to be an awesome addition to WSOF or Bellator.

Make the WW division great again

He honestly didn't hold it that long. It's the refs job to stop the submission, he failed to do so

Man, that sucks. I would've liked to see what Paul Harris could do in the WW Division. Can't say I'm surprised though.

Paul harris was been handed a ban by one of the commisions while in the UFC for doing this before, so it's not like he didn't know is it. It may not have been long but don't forget it's not like he's not applying pressure. He's top level at this stuff.

Also, don't forget Babalu got cut by the UFC and banned for not letting go of a sub as well, so the precedent was set back then.

Paul Harris now joins Babalu and Paul Daley on the banned forever list.

The extra crank and lengh he held it was just stupid. Not surprised he's gone.
