Rousimar Palhares’ Manager Responds To WSOF’s Decision

August 4, 2015 4:58 pm by BJPENN.COM News


Earlier today the World Series of Fighting announced that they are stripping welterweight champion, Rousimar Palhares, of his title and suspending him indefinitely.

Right after the news broke Palhares’ manager Alex Davis spoke to MMAJunkie and told them that he wasn’t happy with how the WSOF was going about this, releasing the information to the media before him and his fighter.

“I love and respect Ray, but you cannot suspend somebody indefinitely. I have the contract, and the contract says (WSOF) shall have the right upon notice to the fighter – which we have not received – shall have the right to suspend the term for a reasonable period until the applicable issue is resolved. That is not indefinitely.

“If WSOF does not want Rousimar’s services anymore, what they should do is just end the contract and we’ll just part ways. What’s not going to happen is they keep him under contract so that he can’t go and make his living somewhere else.”
