He's not in jail. Unless he attends an UFC event.

I agree with the UFC's decision 100%.

It's a shame though. Palhares is a BJJ beast. I would love to see more fighters with his level of Jujitsu in the UFC. But being a professional fighter on the big stage requires control and that is something that Palhares is have proven several times now that he does not have.

was loving the Okami/Fitch hipster movement, but this is a bummer. Harris is exciting and I believe his history played a part in that decision, he's had worse before.

This was the 4th reported incident of Palhares doing that. So fuck him, he brought it on himself.

Let's not forget that he tested positive for "supplements" and the UFC still kept him.

Redemption path?

Maybe if he behaves in a couple fights outside UFC might bring him back for a fight next year. That is the path recommend his camp take with a very conciliatory demeanor towards UFC.

Chances are Dana will have some smart aleck or boring fighter he wants to push out at WW that RP could comeback and wreck.

This is unfortunately a message UFC wants to send, like no offensive twitter posts.
