“Rousimar is one of the most talented athletes in mixed martial arts, and we’re excited to have him as a part of our organization,” WSOF President Ray Sefo said at the time.
However, today during a media call in support of this weekend’s WSOF 7 event, Sefo said he’s going to give the fighter a short leash. Although an opponent and debut date haven’t been set for the former top 10 middleweight, Palhares is being given little leeway.
“I’m not going to tolerate any of that nonsense that happened before,” Sefo said. “If it happens again, he’s gone.”
