I honestly i don't care if Palhares did it on purpose. A fighter should never let go of submission until the Referee pull him off the opponent.in 2002, Matt Lindland taped out, leading McCarthy to intercede. But when he shouted to stop the fight, Lindland argued he didn't tap, and McCarthy opted to restart the fight. This bout remains the biggest gaffe on McCarthy. Ken Shamrock did a hell of a lot more to leon dijk then Palhares did to Mike Pierce Shamrock was not criticized at the time to torqued Mr Dijk ankle 180 degrees and until the Referee pulls him off . we loved him for it. We all-so like Frank Mir for Breaking Tim Sylvia Arm. Anyway 3 or 4 wins at WW and Palhares will be back in the ufc.
