“I’m here for work. It doesn’t matter what the guy puts on social media.”

I’m prepared for the fight, and I’m a champion. It doesn’t matter what the other guy says or writes on Twitter.

“Everybody talks a lot, but what’s important for me is to do work, and I know on Saturday, I’ll show the work and finish it early. No problem.”

That’s what WSOF welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares had to say to MMAJunkie about all of the trash talk that his upcoming opponent Jake Shields has been dishing out. Shields has said, on several occasions, that he thinks Palhares is a ‘dirty fighter’ who tries to intentionally hurt his opponents, even after they’ve tapped.
