CSAC: Yes, Palhares Held Fitch Sub Too Long

“He chose to keep it going another few seconds. You can say it’s the heat of the moment — I’ve heard that too many times from him. I don’t think it’s enough to punish him or anything. It’s real borderline. I’m pretty mad.”

“Was it long? Yeah, it was long. I think if they argued that it wasn’t a bit long, then they’re kidding themselves or are they not being truthful. Was it beyond reason for anyone else in the world? No. If anyone else in the world did that, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. He has a freaking history of this.”

California State Athletic Commission Executive Director Andy Foster is not happy with the recent Sacramento showing of Rousimar Palhares.

Palhares took out Jon Fitch over the weekend to retain his WSOF world title.
