QUICK TWITT | Renzo Gracie Defends Rousimar Palhares

Renzo Gracie is ‘pissed’ about the ‘witch hunt‘ that has taken over the life of Rousimar Palhares.

Palhares fought and defeated Mike Pierce last week during the main card of UFC Fight Night 29 in Brazil. It took the submission master just 31-seconds to secure an ankle lock and force pierce to tap.

What ensued after was the total destruction of the Brazilians fighting career.

Now Renzo Gracie is speaking out on favor of Palhares via twitter:

  1. UFC 84 Forever says:

    Much love to Master Renzo and he has a bit of a point but I maintain the hold was too long and we’ve seen Rousimar isn’t quite right in the past. Fighter safety should be a key concern.

  2. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    I really don’t see the problem. It all happened in a split second, and he did let go when the ref jumped in. Don’t let go until the ref stops the fight is what fighters learn.
    With all the overreacting we will see fighters not fully committing to submissions out of fear to lose their job. More and more Lay n Pray style fighting will be seen because that is the safest way to secure a victory now.
