Despite successfully defending his World Series of Fighting Welterweight Championship for the first time, Rousimar Palhares’ stock plummeted overnight due to the controversy surrounding the win.

Palhares forced Shields to submit in the third round of the main-event of Saturday’s “WSOF 22” and once again held the submission past the tap. Fighters and fans alike were up in arms when it happened and the negative feedback hasn’t stopped:

Does Palhares deserve a lifetime ban, or would a suspension teach him his lesson?
