Rousimar is an absolute animal, I can't remember the controversy around the Nate fight but Nate did kind of have it given to him on a plate. If Palhares had won that, we're talking about a guy who IMO would handle Sonnen, Maia, Bisping etc and finish them all.

I think Rousimar Palhares and Maiquel Falcao are the two most dangerous guys at MW not including Anderson Silva, or Hector Lombard who NEEDS to be in the UFC asap.

I still think if Palhares hadn't made the mistake he made (complaining about grease in the middle of the fight and getting hit), he could've won the fight!

Of course, Nate couldn't handle his grappling at all, but Palhares lost so...

Really want to see him fight Sonnen.

Submitting Mayhem Miller like that is ******* impressive. Mayhem has superb submission defence, but Rousimar man-handled him. The transition from the back to the armbar was so, so slick. The beauty of Palhares isn't just his Jiu Jitsu though, it's his catch wrestling ability, without that Wrestling skill it can be difficult for high level Jitz guys to get the fight to the mat, but Palhares has some slick, well-rounded grappling skills. I'd love to see a Palhares-Marquardt re-match, Rousimar could definitely be a force at 185!

I'm liking Palhares more and more.
He is a monster!
That quick transition from a RnC to armbar was just awesome.
It is more than obvious why he has such big/strong arms, back, shoulders - in fact all his upper body is built for great power.
Combine that with amazing grappling skills and you have one scary dude.

PS: some love for Mayhem also!

BELIEVE!

Been a fan of Palhares for a while now. I hope he can continue to improve. I think he has the ability to be fdangerous for anyone. I have laughed when people say he wouild get schooled on the ground by Maia. Perhaps Maia has better level BJJ, but Palhares is a dangerous black belt, with a frame like a gorilla. His strength helps his BJJ so much. Nightmare for anyone on the ground.

He could and probably would finish Sonnen in the very first round!

I remember an interview with Mayhem where he said he's never been outgrappled or submitted ever like he was training with Palhares. Palhares' JJ is serious business!

I'm still not on the Palhares train. His BJJ is undeniable but I don't think he's intelligent enough of a fighter to be champion material in today's MMA. He also doesn't seem to be in the good graces of DW for whichever reason.



I certainly would pay a million schrute bucks to see Falcao vs Palhares, IMO that's a headliner just due to the unanswered questions and how it'd be impossible to predict.


It's too bad he choked against Marquardt because Palhares vs. Okami would be very interesting. Okami would look like Struve in that fight size-wise.





I agree with getting Lombard in the UFC finally but Bellator just got that amazing, huge MTV deal of live fights every saturday for free. I think we can forget about Eddie and Hector ever making their way to the Octagon.
