UFC Parts Ways With Rousimar Palhares

UFC Parts Ways With Rousimar Palhares

Well, don’t ever let anyone tell you the UFC doesn’t listen to the masses.

After Rousimar Palhares was ripped for not releasing a submission hold on Mike Pierce Wednesday night, the promotion released him on Thursday – despite the Brazilian scoring the win.

UFC president Dana White told ESPN that the decision was made and he is “done” with them.

“If you ever watch a UFC event, the camaraderie is amazing in this sport,” White said.

Several within the MMA community, including Brian Stann, tore into Palhares after the fight.
