Looks like the 2nd chance was worthy... Palhares took 2nd place in the -88kg Division. With Submission wins over Dan Schon (Heel Hook), David Avellan (Kneebar), and Rafael Lovato Jr (Heel Hook) He lost in the Final to Gavlao on Points.

Paul Harris destroyed today! First opponent got slammed then heel hooked....second opponent got subbed twice haha, it aint a Paul Harris match without controversy! Paul gets a heel hook, not sure why he didn't get the win, I think because they were off the mats...Paul approaches his opponent for a hug and dude gets mad haha, Paul pays him back by nearly ripping his leg off with a kneebar. Paul = guaranteed entertainment!

He probably stopped cutting weight half way through to accuse the sauna of greasing.

I heard that he stopped cutting weight because he ordered some chicken legs and then accused the waiter of putting grease on them.
