UFC President Dana White came out today and announced that he was releasing Rousimar Palhares from the UFC following his 31-second submission victory over Mike Pierce during last night’s UFC Fight Night 29 event.

Palhares held on tight to an ankle lock, long after his opponent tapped and the referee’s halt of the bout.

If this was the first incident of the kind from Palhares one might be able to overlook this blatant infraction, but after a repeated history of these types of violations one can easily see why something needed to be done.
