Several MMA Fighters Call For Rousimar Palhares To Be Banned From MMA For Life

Followinng the controversy from WSOF 22 this past Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada, which saw Rousimar Palhares crank a kimura on Jake Shields well after Shields had tapped, several MMA fighters are rallying in an attempt to get Palhares banned for life from MMA.

Palhares, who has a history of holding onto submissions longer than necessary, something that contributed to him being booted from the UFC roster, did what he is most known for once again this past Saturday night. For those who missed it, you can view video footage of the incident, which included Shields punching Palhares in the face after the fight, by clicking here.
