    Everyone gets on Palhares case for holding the subs too long. I think its rather BS to be honest. He is a sub artist that is very strong and puts a lot of power in his subs. His main submission is a leg lock.....its not like a arm bar or a choke where you feel that elevated level of pain and you thinking about tapping. A leg lock comes fast...you dont feel anything and in a split second....it goes from nothing to max pain. Its a very quick elevation. That is why guys that he submits tap so fast.....and the ref cant get in there fast enough sometimes

    Its just a different reaction time.

    Nooooo... Did you see the Tomasz Drwal fight?
    Anyone who's ever had a knee injury automatically hates him, then anyone who hates cheaters hates him too.

    Palhares is big front runner. If things don't go his way, he tends to fold very quickly. Pierce, on the other hand, doesn't wilt. This is definitely Pierce's fight to lose.

    If a Brazilian does something wrong, it is okay if you acknowledge it. No one cares Everyone on here knows how retarded you are. (See Silva/Weidman aftermath comments)

    Didn't Drwal scream out in pain and he still kept holding onto it? Pretty clear verbal submission to me.

    I have no problem with either man. I hope for a good fight. With that said, Pierce should be worried about broken bones and/or damage to crucial tissue right now and less concerned with talk. But I understand selling the fight to a degree. Its almost necessary anymore to get some attention towards your upcoming fight.

    Nothing against pierce, but a big fan of the tree stump, so hopefully palhares takes that leg home.

    I died laughing when David Avellan's friend called him 'semi-retarded' after ADCC. He does come across like it, unfortunately.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and believe you didn't see the fight or didn't remember it. (Unless you continue to try to defend it or downplay it.)

    One of my least favorite fighters ever since the Drwal fight.

    I don't think i've ever rooted for Mike Pierce, but um, war Mike Pierce!

    I'm not defending Palhares, buuut:

    1) The gif is in slow motion
    2) Palhares isn't supposed to stop when the opponent taps. He's supposed to stop when the ref tells him to stop. Remember him vs Miller? He assumed Miller was done and just stopped fighting. But that ref hadn't stopped the fight yet; whereas, others may have.

    His manager did an interview a few years back and in a round about way said Palhares is within one standard deviation of being retarded. If I remember correctly he kept referring to him as "simple", "a simple man" or a "simple farmer from the the country."

    He probably has no idea what he's taking if trainers and doctors are telling him to do it.

    He released the hold after the ref came to pry him off. Thats what hes supposed to do. A lot of people yell and scream. Look at Sonnen x Filho I, Sonnen x Babalu, Shogun x Randleman et al.

    The ref tugged on his arms and he let go. That's a slow motion GIF.
