Palhares offered up his apologies and reiterated that he never meant to hurt Pierce during his recent appearance on "The MMA Hour:"

"No, I did not want to hurt him. In the heat of the fight I did not feel him tap. Afterwards, when I watched the fight I realized that I held on too long, but I really did not mean to hurt him. He is a fighter like I am and I know he does this for a living and I would never want to hurt him."

When asked about his past track record of holding submission too long, "Toquinho" says it's his aggressive style that's to blame but that he never has ill will in his heart, he just wants to make sure he gets the win.

He explains:

"I think it has a lot to do with my style, I am really aggressive when I go after submissions. There has been times where I do not hold on and people get out and then I lose the fight, I am the way I fight. I'm getting better and been working a lot on this, but, this is my style."

Didn't say there was anything wrong with it. We all know the guy is skilled but when organizations don't want him and fighters don't want to fight him it's a tough spot. Phone Post 3.0

His rep is too entrenched in people's minds right now. He's going to have to prove in a smaller org that he can submit people in a more controlled manner in multiple fights before going to Bellator or back to the UFC.

I wonder if this might cause him to change up his style at all. Perhaps stand up a little more. I imagine the guy could kick hard as shit. Phone Post 3.0

I thought the same exact thing. He's pretty much begging now. And for a good reason. IMO, I doubt we'll ever see him hold on to any submission too long again. Phone Post 3.0

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE.

Fuck him, he's hurt too many people. He had his one last chance when he got suspended and he's also a known cheater caught juicing. There's way more deserving people that need to be in the UFC besides this GOOF.

That isn't the point.

If you drink drive once and don't hurt/kill anyone is that license to carry on? Phone Post 3.0

The reason I hope Dana White is just being dramatic when he says lifetime ban, is I honestly think Palhares is just oblivious. He doesn't only have a history of holding on to subs to long, but for being whacky and getting carried away in the cage.

Stopping mid sub attempt to start pointing at your opponent and scream greasing only to get KOed, or stopping mid-fight to celebrate on the cage, only to be forced down and nearly uppercutted to sleep shows shades of Filho.

I think he deserved a cut for doing this in BJJ comps then twice in the UFC, and around the time of a PED suspension, but I don't think he's irredeemable. Let him get a few years of wins without any controversy and I think he'd deserve another go... Only problem is his age, he's at least 30 already

True. However, he also finished a fighter whose only UFC losses are razor thin decisions to the division's top fighters and who had never been finished in his career before that.

I watch a combat sport to be entertained. People get hurt in combat sports. Arms and limbs get snapped, skulls fractured and ligaments trashed. Palhares is a legitimate contender in any division and has incredible skills in submissions, which is something not on display as much as it should be. He makes for entertaining fights. Phone Post
