I could say confidently from experience that another untested BJJ prodigy wasn't about to beat Hendo.
Honestly Palhares impressed me more in that fight then all of his other fights. He more or less confirmed in my mind that he is a better version of Filho in that he has better wrestling and BJJ but a worse gas tank and horrible striking.

What impressed me was his chin and wrestling, because I didn't expect him to get Hendo down at all. I still think he will beat Anderson, and Hendo is the only MW in the division that can beat him because he is the only one with the wrestling to stop him.

Talk about an overrated fighter....
With that horrible striking you mention and short reach Silva will dismantle him, if that fight ever happens, which is doubtful.

As a person who sees a bright future for Palhares, I thought that outcome of the fight for him was pretty good. He didnt lose because he didnt have enough skill. He lost because he was tentative. It was his first pig fight in a huge public viewing against one of the biggest name in the sport. So for him to fight like that was kinda expected. I personally thought Hendo was gonna take this but atleast it showed us another part of Palhares's game. Not only does he have a sick ground game, he has an incredible chin. That you cannot learn. Just send him to Chute box for 6 months and you will have an incredible fighter
