    I don’t think he should’ve been fired for this. The guy tapped on the ref and prior to that got out of a lock. He had to secure it. I’ve never seen him injur a fighter. On the other side you have frank Mir who has broken two arms. If Dana wanted to slim his roster just say that. I’m sure if palhares wanted he could have shredded the guys knee quickly on that last attempt. Just my opinion. You fire a guy for holding the sub too long buy your champ drinks and drives could have killed someone and he’s still there? Dana is loosing my respect on handling things quickly.
