    I don't think that's quite true. Abdel-Aziz is often regarded as the WSOF decision maker and has been at the forefront on all of their major contract issues and signings.

    All I can figure here is that Palhares has done something incredibly dumb or underhanded because Aziz has repeatedly preached "fighters first" and has shown it in his actions.

    Granted, he's anything but a reliable source, but Palhares says that the comments weren't directed at him; that he pulled out due to a family illness.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Aziz was lashing out at whoever he offered the fight to after Palhares pulled out.

    That's quite possible.

    Honestly, color me surprised as I didn't even consider it and instantly jumped on Palhares.

    I heard it was his Mom who was sick. Either way if it's family that comes first. Looking forward to seeing him take both fitch's and Sheild's legs. Sure he's a one trick pony, but it's a hellova Trick! Paul Harris!

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. 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
