I just added a poll...
@JeremySchaap: @danawhite tells me on @ESPNOlbermann that Rousimar Palhares is banned. won't ever fight for UFC again...
I'm mostly upset because leg locks are my favorite subs and now the best guy in the ufc at em is gone.
Welcome to Bellator
I hope everyone is happy.
That's fucking stupid.
Whoa, didn't expect that. Would like to see him vs Askren.
The dude has a history of this and there's no place for it in the sport. Fuck him.
wow, makes sense but still.
Cant believe it
Just saw the influx of new threads on this. Went ahead and stickied this one.
I don't agree with the decision, but it's not one of their worst ones. Fighter safety is important, and Palhares (whether it's intentional or unintentional) tends to hold subs for too long. It's not like this was the first time he did it. Much like posters on here, you only get so many chances before you're banned.
Inb4 unprecedented levels of butthurt.
Thats bullshit....a fine....a harsh warning or suspension would be adequate, but a ban??
There are fighters that have done worse then that.
Wow...I really wasn't expecting that. I figured a suspension, but didn't think he was getting banned.
Then they should cut Schaub and Hendo too.
Mike Pierce kind of deserved it but Palheres was making the sport look bad. The decision makes sense he should have learned from the previous repercussions.
