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.
