Very valid point about the Kim Vs Erick Silva fight, but the problem here Paul Harris is you’ve done this more than once. This is your third time that I’ve seen. Log in to Reply jackie October 13, 2013 omg being cut for that is completely retarded, dana white can just be a piece of shit sometimes Log in to Reply Schtuppin' Hawking the F*ing Genius October 13, 2013 So in a nutshell, “I love Jesus. I didn’t do anything wrong. BUT if I do something wrong, forgive me. But I didn’t do anything wrong. I love Jesus.” In his future fights (in Brazil only I hope!) the ref should be armed with a taser. Log in to Reply YODA October 13, 2013 If this was his first time then there is no way he should of been cut, but he’s done it so many times. Not just in MMA but in grappling tournaments as well. Log in to Reply NotVinnieJones October 13, 2013 Just as I expected, someone posted a vid on u-toob that shows all of Palhares controversial stoppages. To me, for a few submissions he doesn’t hold on any longer than any other fighter would. But with other subs, it seems like maybe he enjoys the feeling of power by getting and having another fighter in a devastating submission to the point of total control over that fighter, especially in front of a huge audience. Because he sure doesn’t want to let go right away. Log in to Reply Timzda October 13, 2013 I think taking his sub bonus was more than punishment enough. Pretty sure the message would’ve got through. It’s a very all or nothing punishment from the UFC. Log in to Reply nexstory October 13, 2013 I agree with Timzda. Palhares did not act with the intent of harming Mike Pierce. There was nothing in his demeanor either during or immediately after the fight with Pierce that showed blatant disregard for the other man’s wellbeing. I think that the penalty of a lost bonus in this instance is sufficient. I hope Dana upon reflection tell Palhares, that he has now been warned and leaves it at that. Log in to Reply coutura October 13, 2013 I say dana give this guy another chance is not like paul daley sucker punch ..palhares is a humble guy he needs another chance. Log in to Reply Big Rig October 13, 2013 Translation= Im a clueless turd!!!! Can someone please tell who Paul Harris is??? confused! =/ Log in to Reply chattmma October 13, 2013 Total bonehead. Log in to Reply eigss October 13, 2013 Taking the submission of the night, and plus taking out of the UFC a “little over reating Mr Dana” Log in to Reply firstname.lastname@example.org October 13, 2013 What the hell is happening to the UFC? Getting cut because of trying to hurt an opponent? This is so stupid. I like the old days of the UFC. Now the sport is for sissys. Log in to Reply Grick October 14, 2013 I saw a video of Paul Harris rolling with Mayhem Miller in Brazil. Miller tapped, and he immediately let go of the arm bar. One tap, and he let go a split of a split second later. Before I saw this, I thought Paul Harris was just dumb and oblivious to the tap. He might be dumb, but not innocent. Log in to Reply Facefrack October 14, 2013 Palhares n Dana White have had a strained relationship for quite a while now n it seems like this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I agree that White is overreacting, but this wasn’t a bolt from the blue. I believe he’s been warned several times, but all I really feel is disappointment. He’s among the very most dangerous Welterweights in the game. Let him back, Dana! Don’t you see how severe this backlash from the fans has been? Log in to Reply Pangea12 October 14, 2013 Listen, you can’t allow this to happen regardless of intent or lack of one. Black and white, you can’t do it and he has shown to be a multiple offender. What if you saw his knee pop grotesquely when the ref was pulling him off? Different opinion then? Either way it’s against the sports rules. Log in to Reply had_to_say_it October 14, 2013 @Big Rig.. HAHAHAHAHA.. Shocktime, who is Paul Harris!?? Log in to Reply Yoplait October 14, 2013 The elephant in the room that everyone seems to be missing is that what he has done in the past and what he did in the fight have a cumulative effect. If he maliciously destroys someone’s career it’s bad for the sport in general and bad for the Ufc. I don’t like Dana White but he has done what was needed to protect the image of his company. Just because the guy apologizes it means nothing, hell the last girl I gave crabs to is still pissed off… And I even apologized but I guess if it’s a video apology it will be accepted. Interesting… Log in to Reply DrDoom October 14, 2013 The fact that Bellator won’t sign him certainly says something. And his ex-coach has stated, “”But then he caused a lot of incidents inside my academy during his camps and I changed my mind. I got tired of seeing how he hurts people so often when he is sparring, especially when he has a fight coming up. We used to argue every time it happened, so we argued a lot.” Even a sports psychologist brought it couldn’t help him. He may very well have sociopathic tendancies.

Log in to Reply ericsson October 14, 2013 you are cut monkey man so **** off Log in to Reply mmafan11 October 14, 2013 @ericsson what your part of the KKK now calling people of color Monkey? Bruno please edit Racist sh*t. Dana cut PH because he can not because PH did anything wrong in this fight his being punished for his past perceived conduct, unfairly. Yet another reason for a Fighters League structure for a Fair share of Revenues and Rulings like the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB. Or the Promoter keeps screwing fighters & keeping 99% of the Ca$h. Log in to Reply ETK October 14, 2013 Is Palhares the same weight class/division as GSP? Oh, the evil that Palhares could do to GSP’s knee. Log in to Reply No Technique Monkey October 14, 2013 This ape has no technique. He just relies on his steroid monkey power to pull off a strength move. Not his fault, he doesnt have the body type to do any other moves, and he has the brains of a donkey. Log in to Reply screwballhk October 14, 2013 “don’t leave it in the hands of the judges” “oh, you held onto the sub too long. you’re cut.” Two-faced douchebaggery as usual, Dana. WTG. A dude waits til the ref breaks him off and he’s cut? Seriously? Then you turn around and say “eh, **** the refs, **** the judges, don’t let the fight go the distance, don’t hurt each other”. What’s the real story here? Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick October 15, 2013 @mmafan11 Shut up douchebag. It’s not racist. Paul Harris looks like a monkey and acys like one… And please shut the **** up about the union. You posted that exact same comment 20 times in the last week. If there’s one thing Bruno should take off it’s your spamming. If they had a union Paul Harris would’ve got suspended or cut. A union doesn’t prevent the NHL, MLB etc. to ban a guy who repeatedly tried again and again to end other players careers… Please odn’t ever post that same comment again you tool.
