My 2 Cents:

If this were the first time Palhares (or Paul Harris as some like to call him) did something like this I would say "warn him and let it go". BUT, this is not the first, not even close to it. It is the 2nd time in the UFC and 4th time that it has been documented in MMA. It has been documented many other times in training and in BJJ matches.

The guy obviously has no respect, can not be controlled, and intends to cause injury even if a ref is attempting to stop the fight.

"Stupid dana" has no authority over weather soccer kicks or knees on the ground are allowed in MMA in the United States. The rules are set by the governing body of the state that the fight is held in. There is currently NO STATE that allows either soccer kicks or knees/kicks to a grounded opponent.

While it is clear you like old fashioned Pride rules, it is also clear that you place the blame for rule changes on the wrong party.

I think for those saying that this is harsh and maybe he held it a bit too long but didnt have ill will, you have to understand he has a history of holding locks too long. Im positive he would have been warned to not do it again yet he keeps doing it hes had enough chances and they did what they had to.

I'm on the fence with this, I think it's a little to harsh maybe a lighter punishment would have done.

With all that adrenaline flowing and emotion in a fight, maybe Plahares got caught up in the moment.

You underestimate how much influence dana has, if he really wanted to he could get soccer kicks and knees implemented and could have done it a while ago. All it takes is him filing a request of rule changing in MMA and perhaps a bribe seeing how nevada state athletic commission seems corrupt to me and presto.

I wonder was it the last fight in his contract. If so cutting him and just not renewing him might be one and the same and so its an easy decision to make for DW.
If I had more fights on my contract and I was cut for that I would sue the UFC, referencing the old double submission of Matt Lindland, and also point out the inexperienced ref who went to the wrong place to release the submission. A good official would have gone straight to the ankle and it would have not been possible for him to maintain the hold, or at least if he tried then it would be an obvious case of trying to cause extra damage.

Maybe instead of cutting him they should make him fight with a shock collar and just zap him when they need him to stop pulling knees apart. He is too thick in the head and lacks the mental awareness required to act professionally.

Also, the ref could have done a better job. He was too far away and pulled at the wrong place to break it up. With leg locks you always need to be extra careful because the pain threshold and the breaking point are perilously close.

Basically, I'm not surprised. Something stupid always seems to happen in every Palhares fight, and this is just the final step for Paul Harris. I don't think it'll be a Paul Daley-esque ban, but Dana's so stubborn you just never know.

I liken Palhares to a 5 year old kid with a gun. No doubt in my mind that Rousimar doesn't mean to hurt guys and isn't 'evil' as some suggest but he is just so god damn simple, he is the MMA equivalent to the waterboy! Thing is you can't continue to let a guy do things like is no matter how much intent is behind it. Like someone said what happens if he gets a RNC on someone and they go up and he holds it for 5 seconds while the ref tries to rip him off. That kind of imagery would set the ufc back years!

I feel he shouldn't be perma banned, cutting him is one thing, but you know he could leave and work on his issue, then come back. He is a good grappler
