Thread: Palhares banned for LIFE from the UFC

    I am surprised to see people on here supporting Palhares. Its not like this is the first time he has done this. And to compare it to punches before the ref steps in is just crazy. He is a repeat offender and a juicer. Roid rage is a bitch and it caught up to him. I could care less if he is suspended for life. He had potential but he flushed it all away.

    Holding on to a sub after someone taps or the ref tries to pull them off is totally different. And doing it multiple times is completely inexcusable.
    The Brown comparison is a terrible one. If Palhares had him in a hold knowing his joints were tearing and Pierce wasn't tapping and looked at the ref like "dude, what the fuck are you doing? Just stop the fight" it would be a great comparison.

    A more appropriate comparison would be Mike Kyle when the ref tackled him off his opponent and he still went after him.

    Someone's knee thanks him.

    I could see a full meltdown given the recent chain of events. (His doing, of course)

    ‘Minotauro’ on Palhares: ‘He has never thought of doing anything evil to any opponent’
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/10/1...ht-29-mma-news

    "I can say that in our gym, ‘Toquinho’ has never hurt anyone," Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira, the leader of Team Nogueira in Rio de Janeiro, stated in a release sent to MMAFighting.com. "He is a good person, excellent company and a man with a great character. I believe that he has never thought of doing anything evil to any opponent because this isn’t his conduct.

    "I don’t question UFC’s decision because the people who are in control have a global view of the business and they understand it better than anyone in the whole business that involves our sport."

    UFC president Dana White said that what Palhares’ did "was wrong and really despicable", and that’s why he decided to release him. The Brazilian, who was already suspended in the past for holding a submission too long, was suspended for 120 days by the Brazilian Athletic Comission (CABMMA) following his 31-second win at UFN 29.

    "Minotauro", a jiu-jitsu expect with 21 submission victories, has never finished a fight with ankle locks or heel hooks, but he says the fighter needs to be "explosive" to get the win with attacks like these.

    "It’s a dangerous position and the guy who applies it has to be explosive," he said. "At the time, you don’t look at the opponent. ‘Toquinho’ lost the position several times because he released the grip a little. It’s a position that you go with everything or you lose it. It’s a complicated situation. The referee needs to be aware and has to intervene in an energetic way."

    Rogerio "Minotouro" Nogueira, "Minotauro’s" twin brother, defended his teammate as well.

    "I've known Rousimar for years," "Minotouro" said. "As an athlete he’s a phenom, and as a person he’s loved by everyone, especially for his simplicity. Anyone who knows the history of his life will be enchanted with his modesty and dedication to the sport. ‘Toquinho’ was always the first to arrive and the last to leave the gym, always a great help to our athletes, and we’re sure he will continue to do so because Team Nogueira will always be by his side."

    I don't doubt any of what Nog is saying.

    I've known guys who were absolutely the nicest dudes on the planet during practice and on the street and then, during games, they'd twist fingers, poke eyes, undercut, elbow, etc. and not even bat an eye.

    This was not an isolated incident. Palhares has a problem. He admitted such by visiting a sports psychologist.

    I hope he figures out whatever it is in him that snaps when he's competing and is able to salvage a career because he is a gifted submission artist who came from what I understand to be an absolutely horrible upbringing.

    Well there goes the excuse that Mike walked away and wasn't injured.

    It sucks because had it been strikes he would probably have a shot at coming back to the UFC, but having a reputation for holding on to one of the most dangerous subs in MMA for too long is pretty much a career killer. It's a shame because he could have been a great challenge for GSP. I can't really blame fighters who say they would never fight him, that's pretty scary to think about what he could do to your knee if he catches you. It's a damn shame, he could have been a hell of a contender. I think he'll be the new OneFC or WSOF champ by next year if they take him.

If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
