    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.

    Overdoing subs after the tap is IMO just about the worst thing you can do as a fight competitor. Very poor form.

    I applaud the UFC for their response to his behavior. Rules for basic safety have to be adhered to rigorously, and if you can't be a sportsman, get out of the sport.

    Seriously...is that some kind of Brazilian special confection? I'd get knee barred for a slice.

    This isn't a great contribution to the thread, but it is marginally relevant.

    You would have preferred them to be dragged back to the center of a boxing-ish ring by 4 anxious Japanese men?

    So... do 'roids really make you weird in the head? Is there any thread on that? I've heard many things and rumors, how they can trigger aggressive behavior.... but never seriously checked on the subject. And Palhares looks roided up :-/
