Breaking news-Source: ADCC cuts Rousimar Palhares.

http://www.tatame.com.br/apos-demiss...zacao-do-adcc/


The link I posted is in Portuguese but I Google transalted the main part of the artical.


"The stage is not even good for Rousimar "Toquinho" Palhares. Dismissed by Ultimate Last week, the athlete of Team Nogueira is out of ADCC, which takes place this weekend in Beijing, China. This is because, the organization decided to cut the seat fighter after the incident at UFC Barueri, on the 9th of October, according to information collected by tatami, on Tuesday (15)."

He is a threat to other combatants with a history of trying to hurt opponents. I honestly believe the only reason Palhares is in MMA/BJJ is because it is a legal way to hurt other people...

Good on the ADCC for this move. Palhares is going to have to do some begging and somehow prove he has changed his ways if he ever wants to get back on any of the big stages again.

All articles I've read on this say he was only removed from the roster because he didn't return their calls after the Pierce fight. He told them he would take part based on how his fight went, but then never let them know.

Hope it isn't a case of him pissing off ADCC, with UFC and Bellator wanting nothing to do with him he needs all the income he can get.

He could very easily be homeless within a year... Hope he gets picked up by WSOF so atleast he'll have a somewhat stable future.

He reminds me of the character in "Of Mice And Men." Doesn't know his own strength. Such is life.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
