    He's been looking like a savage and with the UFC contenders picture more cloudy than ever, I think Palhares could come back and wreak havoc.

    I'd like to see him fight Maia first.

    He's a great fighter, but he's still having issues holding on submissions too long. I think if he was able to address this problem, they would let him back in.

    He would be a good addition to WW but I think Dana and co. probably rightly view him as a liability. Palhares always seems like the type of dude who could seriously hurt someone and yet then pleads ignorance as to how that could have happened. It's tough to hedge your best on someone who is so unpredictable in the cage.

    The amazing thing about Rousimar though is that he's single-mindedly going for the same type of hold in every fight and even though you know that's what he's going for he still manages to by and large get it.

    Feed him to Woodley, Hendricks, Lombard (again), Gastelum and then cut him again.
    I'd be ok with that.

    Not really. I'd like to see him banned from the sport for his transgressions. WAY worse than what Chael and Wanderlei have done.

    Which is a shame because he's so good.

    Not end but delay. He's injured a lot of fighters causing them to not earn a paycheck. He still needs to beat Shields though. If he does that then theres really nothing for him but shields is his toughest test

    This. When a ref jumps in, the hold should be released without his hands having to be pried off his opponent. There's a mental aspect to MMA that he just doesn't get/have.
