Wow Palhares should be banned from UFC for a while. That was Babalu-esque.

Rogan counted a solid 5 seconds after he started tapping. Not a good deal for that dudes knee.

I dont care what he says he could have let go sooner and Tomasz couldnt have done anything to Pallhares from that spot....Pallhares knows that....regardless of what he said.....

No. But it was only about ONE second after the ref called the fight. And if you look Palhares had his eyes closed, so he doesn't know the ref is stopping the fight til he pushes him. I gotta say that the ref has to know there's a leg lock guy in the cage, and be on top of that.

That was hard to watch, and I'm going to assume the ref knew that Palhares was Mr. Leg Locka, Chief Heel Hooka.

I was watching it live, man he screwed up by slipping and well than it was his fault he got himself into that submission but like Joe said, the mats are slippery. Also when the prelims cut out to the final stuff with hardy/GSP you see an ambulance outside the arena so yeah from the looks of it, it went pretty bad for his leg.

If I were him I would be pretty upset at myself.

As soon as I saw the spoiler tag and immediate discussion, I somehow knew exactly what this thread was about...and this was before watching the fight.

Rousamir has some crazy ass leg locks...he also has a tendency to go a bit above and beyond what's needed.

Ref was too far away from the action. I don't fault Palhares at all. He didn't hold on that long after the ref signaled, its just that he signaled so late.

Palhares did hold on a few seconds too long imo, but you also have to look at the shitty reffing as well. Herb Dean would have been right there and the second he tapped Herb would have physically made him let go.

I put half on Palhares and half on whoever was reffing, too stoned to remember now. :smoke01:
