I have done gracie jui jitsu and got to the level i am, and im over 40, so ive done it for a while ,well yes for the most part under lucio 'lagarto' rodriguez at gracie barra northwest (UK), then at the farm in Preston and somewhat ive trained at braulio estima's place.Amongst others.. Ive met quite a few folks who i now call friends along the way, and had a great time doing it.. But one thing in this community world wide, there is a etiquette there is a honor, there is a respect for who ever you roll with sparring or full on. Even more so for the brazilians. Its like a unwritten law. It seems that Palhares has absolute disrgard for this respect. I know Its a completely different game MMA, but he has come from a BJJ background. His utter disrespect and the fact he seems to like to hurt a opponent, coming from his background is staggering . Its absolutely shameful ..i know this much, if someone had done that when lagarto was around he would have killed them.. not feeling the tap is BS, that is a sinister streak that man has, trying to injure another, no matter what, it goes beyond the realms of competition and decency and respect.. He has no place in mma or bjj competition and should be thrown out..
