    Mike Pierce hasn't fought in almost 2 years since Oct. 2013 against palhares. He comes back in December against Ryan Laflare. Has his knee been injured this whole time from Palhares?

    Yes but he was supposed to fight Maia in May 2014....broke his hand. Didn't know he was fighting LaFlare...and didn't realize it's been that long since Palhares palhares'd him

    I had really hoped he had retired. I remember he said he only wanted easy fights. He said he only wanted to fight Brazilians because they're easy.

    And then he fought Palhares, lol.

    Sucks for him. I've never been a fan or anything but he's a solid fighter who doesn't get more attention because he's boring. Many of his losses are close tough fights with some well known elite WWs like Kos, Fitch, and Hendricks.

    No one deserves to be on the sidelines for that long because of some asshole.

    Sucks to be him.

    Don't think his knee was really all the fucked up. Think he had a bunch of other injuries after that forced him to pull out of fights like broken hand etc.

    Jesus Christ people. Pierce isn't out because of Palhares. He didn't even get significantly injured in that fight.

    He was scheduled to fight Maia like 6 months later and then broke his hand training for that.

    Fans like you crack me up speaking out of your butt all the time and have not even the slightest clue what your talking about.

    Mike cried like a girl after Palharris clowned him. Had the hold in ADCC not been held to long right before the Pierce fight nobody would be crying about the Pierce finish which was perfectly fine.

    Definitely. Thought he got robbed against Koscheck as well.

    He was a very solid fighter and I'm looking forward to his return. Hopefully he's not too rusty.
