I thought it was a little over the top that they banned him. He should have gotten a stiff punishment but not a ban imho Phone Post

Palhares didn't break any rules.

Per the rule book:

"The referee is the sole arbiter of a contest and is the only individual authorized to stop a contest."

Less than a second was how long it took for Palhares to release.

Palhares didn't 'crank it'. The referee puts his head and uses his upper back, pushing him. This can been seen when you go frame by frame.

The referee was behind Palhares line of sight.

The cut is horrible since there have been so many submissions that have been held for an extra fraction of a second.

"Heelhooks" have become like pitbulls with their own special stigma. People saw Pierce's face and jumped on the mob wagon.

Palhares needs to be brought back.

Glad to see him gone, the guy has a long history of this nonsense, both in and outside of the UFC.

Babalu wishes he got as many chances as Paul Harris did.

tunaburn - He means he gave it another hard crank after the ref stopped it
Kinda like Hendo giving Bisping another shot "just to shut him up"! Phone Post 3.0

Except for the fact that no ref was trying to keep Hendo from throwing that second shot.

Cryptic - Mir has broken more limbs, yet he's still under contract.

Those guys didn't tap. False comparison.

This hasn't happened once and frankly I don't care how good the guy is. He can potentially ruin someone's career with that bullshit. Either he gets help with a sports psychologist or he needs to find something in his life. Safety is more important than some fucking asshole fans getting their dicks hard over some knee bars.

Reinstate? NO WAY

Lifetime ban? NO WAY

I think Palhares should be cut and if he shows that he can keep a level head, then bring him back later, after a few fights.

This!!!
After watching his apology video it seems to me that he thinks that he hasn't done anything wrong, so unfortunately I don't think he will change. Phone Post 3.0

the petition is picking up steam folks!!

let's keep it going - let's get it to BRAZIL!

so many examples of "unsportsmanlike" behavior over the years but people are focusing on this and arguing in circles. IF Palhares really did do something bad, well, can a fighter learn from their mistakes? History has shown they can, so give Toquinho another chance!

I'm amazed that ppl have no problem going full torque on a sub in order to seriously injur, before the ref steps in, while being outraged by someone holding a sub .5 sec longer without serious injury Phone Post
