He is not good at his job if he breaks the rules and hurts his coworkers, thus hurting his employer. Is he good at BJJ, submissions, lower limb locks and finishing fights?

Yes.

lol @ lots of sarcastic posting when nobody actually read the content of the thread. He's saying the UFC made a mistake by not cutting Palhares earlier, which I agree with. May as well find excuses to cut people who could be bad for business when they're coming off of a loss. Dana did it with Fitch & Okami (bad for business in the way that he puts on snooze fests), and should have done it with Palhares coming off his history.

I read the OP which is why I said people thought his removal was justified well before last Wednesday. If he had been released before people would still bitch, if it was for his dirty tactics, but if the losses then drug suspension got him his walking papers, nobody would care.

I like MMA less because of this forum

No I actually like the timing of it. Had be been released prior, he wouldn't have be as widespread exposed for his despicable actions.

It was actually perfect. They gave him just enough rope to hang himself.

I think what would have happened if he was released before the Pierce fight, is that he might have still done the same nasty crank to someone else outside of UFC. Then UFC would say "we were happy we released him look what he's capable of doing", rather then him actually hurting someone in the UFC. Compare it to the Maiquel Falcao situation that got in another streetfight after being released by UFC. Even then he was referred to as "former UFC fighter", and Dana had to comment on it.
Maybe Falcao vs. Palhares should happen?

I read the thread and i dont think the UFC made a mistake by not cutting Palhares. The guy is fun to watch. Has a solid name for more hardcore fans. Is a solid gate keeper.

And most of all

He made 7k/7k with his win over Mike Pierce who made 28k in his loss and i personally am alot more interested in watching Palhares fight then Pierce. That means Palhares can win 2 fights in a row and make what Pierce makes in 1 loss.

I also read somewhere that in his 12 fights he made like 150k salary overall or something like that which is cheap as all hell. To the point that i almost dont believe it. I know that probably does not take into account the bonuses he has won.

The UFC was getting a serious bargain with Palhares.

And his Manager must suck balls at his job.

Palhares is definetly exciting to watch, and is cheap if I am to trust you, and certainly is a good fighter.
However, the same can be said about Maiquel Falcao.

My argument is that the UFC had the opportunity to get rid of him prior to the Mike Pierce injury, in order to avoid further negative associations of the UFC in PR. Losing 2 in a row and not being ranked in the top 10 is grounds to be released considering what happened to Fitch, Okami and Kongo.

If you add the bonuses Palhares has won in his 12 fights with the UFC he has earned a disclosed

Rousimar Palhares* $ 262,000

(That is ******* robbery)


The reason i find your argument invalid is that what bad press are you talking about?? No one has went after the UFC with what Palhares did. If anything all im seeing is good press regarding the UFCs decision to cut Palhares. All the bad press has been directed strictly at Palhares.

Truth is the UFC is going to be seen as a violent sport whether there is evidence to back it up or not. It works out better for the UFC to show they are against putting their fighters in danger and bad sportsmanship then it is for them to never get a chance to prove they are. I know that seems a little backward but realistically its the truth. Most people who look at the UFC in a negative light probably couldnt even come up with a single incident like Palhareses. They will think negatively of the sport none the less. Now the UFC has shown that they are not about that and will not condone it.
