    His bonus for "sub of the night" has been withheld for "unsportsman like submission", i.e not releasing it once the ref called it, its also possible he may face more than just a loss of bonus.

    I didn't get to see it, but I'm somewhat surprised that shields beat Maia. They're both incredible grapplers, but I would have thought Maia would hold the edge. Guess I was wrong. Figured it would be... less than exciting... I'd still like to catch a replay at some point to see 2 incredible grapplers fight.

    Honestly, I'm not sad to see Palhares released.

    Glad I missed Matt's loss. I always liked Hammil, and, as such, have no desire to see him fighting anymore.

    I am bummed I missed Kim/Silva though!

    Palhares was *cranking* the sub after the guy tapped and after ref was trying to pry his hands off. I counted three or four seconds of increased--not constant--pressure after Mike Pierce taps. You can see Palhares distinctly give the heel hook a second heave after the ref has made contact: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_sMDJDQeCx..._w/s1600/2.gif

    I agree that this wasn't as bad as any of the multiple previous times Palhares has cranked after the tap and the ref intervening, but the timer in that video starts when the ref makes contact, not when his opponent started tapping. Watching a video of the match (not the timecoded one, with its stop-start) Palhares is clearly slow to release the hold. In looking at all the times he's done this, it appears that Palhares is literally not cognitively capable of recognizing either taps or referee interventions within a safe or reasonable period of time.

    I know MMA is about combat and intimidation and so on, but it's also supposed to be a professional sport. Palhares has repeatedly, repeatedly, repeatedly ruined people's knees after they had given up. That's not okay. We're talking about real knees here. It's not a hyperextended elbow or a broken humerus that just takes time to heal. These injuries routinely end careers. If Palhares can't be made to understand this concept then he has no business in a professional sports organization.

    I love Palhares. You have to appreciate fighters WHO can whip those leglocks out in a split-second in high level competition and Palhares is probably the best leglock guy in the UFC.

    It breaks my Heart that he's such an idiot. Now he'll either retire or go back to the minor Leagues if any will have him. We'll be robbed of seeing those badass finishes in high level fights ever Again.
