The Palhares Bandwagon
 
Rousimar Palhares is an awesome fighter. He is rocking a light beard and some mean biceps. His takedown skills are very good for a non-wrestler (as a matter of fact, better than most wrestlers). As I see him he might be better than Paolo Filho as he seems more dynamic and exiting and even stronger.

Here's a fight from a while ago, in which he looks impressive against the very toughFabio Negao (who Lindland had troubles with):

I think Henderson is screwed in this one.

Palhares is a really good prospect for the future and he will help making the MW division stacked (along with Anderson, Marquardt, Kampmann, Maia, Bisping, Ace, Hendo, Leben and Leites).

ALL ABOARD THE PALHARES BANDWAGON!!!

I've been on board this baby since he spanked Salaverry.

Hope that wagon's got some solid construction.

'Cause you've got cow.

Never thought I'd see Hendo lose three-in-a-row, but... yeah. And this'll make for his second straight loss by submission.

I want to jump on this bandwagon but not until after the Henderson fight lol. I like Palhares and think he is a great MW but I just cant stand to see Hendo lose again. :(

I didn't click the link so I'm not sure but isn't his fight with Negao the one where he was a dick and kept the sub hold in ages after he tapped, or put a new lock on or something, you could of chose a different fight to get people on the bandwagon if this is the case:p

You have to mention Toquinho's neck aswell. It's a sick neck.

Just for the record, Maia also has a win over Negao. But yeah, Toquinho is awesome.

I believe you are talking about the Flávio Luiz Moura fight, but that I definitely blame on the ref. He didn't immediately react towards Toquinho to the tap. I don't think Rousimar knew he tapped until Moura actually tapped Toquinho's leg instead of his own stomach. There was no Babaluing going on there.

In case anyone can't tell I'm on this bandwagon big time.

I'm on board. Rousimar is a ninja on the ground.

I really like Henderson but, I'm not liking his chances for this one.

Damone 08-02-2008 05:48 PM

Palhares is going to rip Henderson's arms off and then he's going to rip Hendo's leg's off.

He's way too explosive for Henderson at 185 and his ground game is pretty damn swanky.

I brought chips for this here bandwagon. Sour cream and onion, to be exact. Also, about the Moura fight, that was the ref's fault, as Palhares did not see the tap. The ref should've stepped in there as soon as he saw the guy tap.
