I'm not gonna lie that I find the thread title a little bit funny given the thread starter's screen name.

If the ref is grabbing both of you, that means it's over homie

I would almost never suggest a cut but IMO this is much worse than Babalu/Heath. Phone Post 3.0

If Pierce is hurt, that might warrant a cut.

The "he's too dumb" or "he has so much adrenaline" thing doesn't work for me.

Hanging on until the ref has to damn near punch you to get you to release the hold is unnecessary but (I guess) harmless if you don't actually hurt the guy. But if that's a spiral fracture or a torn ACL, then I've got a real problem with it. Phone Post 3.0

Did the ref use his head to try to break Palhares' grip on the leg? Looked like he did to me.

When you have been in the game that long you know exactly what a tap on your leg feels like, and it doesn't feel like a strike.  IMO he should be cut from the UFC, this isnt the first time he has done that.

He tapped before the ref got there are you joking?

Yeah, looks like he pushed his head against his arm to pry it loose Phone Post

He might be a bit special but he's one of the few submission guys that generates real fear in his opponents. No one's thinking they can just tap if they get caught. Phone Post 3.0

these refs need some defensive submission training! whenever they try to stop someone who is holding onto a submission to long they just randomly grab and hug and generally have no idea how to actually force the person to let go. The ref should of been grabbing paul harris's arms or wrists trying to pry him off pierce's leg.

also obviously fighters should let go when he other guy taps.. but sometimes these things happen in mma.

Not only is that unsportsmanlike, but it's also reckless, and needlessly dangerous. Obviously this isn't the first time he's done this. How many more times does this shit need to happen, and how many more people need to be needlessly hurt, before someone does something about it? I really hope Palhares gets cut, or at the very least fined and suspended (and I agree with the above poster that this is worse than the Babalu RNC, as a heel hook can seriously fuck someones ankle and leg up). That dude is a classless asshole, and then he even has the audacity to get on his knees and point up to god like he is some holy roller after he just unrelentingly fucked Pierces ankle and leg up. There is no justification for what he is continuously doing with his excessive cranking of his heel hooks.

I suggest hit him where it hurts. Take 1/2 his purse.  The UFC is better with him in it. But his history demands a sanction.
