According to his former coaches recount, hurting his training partners with submissions is also part of the legacy that is Rousimar Palhares.

“I wouldn’t normally say anything because usually what happens inside Brazilian Top Team stays inside Brazilian Top Team,” said former coach Bustamante. “But Rousimar has been talking a lot of bulls— about my team so I feel I am free to say what I think as well.”

“In the beginning I thought it was because he was naive or had too much nervous energy during the fights.

“But then he caused a lot of incidents inside my academy during his camps and I changed my mind. I got tired of seeing how he hurts people so often when he is sparring, especially when he has a fight coming up. We used to argue every time it happened, so we argued a lot.

“That was a reason – together with his nonsense excuses every time he lost a fight – that our relationship started to get bitter.

“I actually hired a psychologist to help me with him but, as we have seen, it didn’t work.”
