Rousimar Palhares out of 2013 ADCC
Rousimar Palhares (Seen here with delicious cake) has been removed from the 2013 ADCC tournament. As reported by MMAInsider.net, Palhares had conditionally agreed to compete in the tournament prior to his dismissal from the UFC but was unresponsive after the event. When they were unable to reach him to confirm his participation the ADCC officials were forced to remove him from the tournament.
Palhares has been surrounded by controversy over the last few years in both his grappling and MMA careers as he has acquired a reputation for brutal leglocks and a tendency to hold submissions just a little bit longer than necessary.
