Dana caved to media pressure RE: Palhares

Suspended 90 days for the Drwal incident.

Claime Marquardt "greased" his leg after being blasted-out by Nate. Later apologized for lying.

Linhares was injured because he held on.

He tested positive for elivated T.

Lombard, Belcher & Hendo all had their way with Stumpy. In short, im glad hes gone. Thanks Dana! Keep up the good work. Phone Post

you have at least have remained calm and made your point, I can respect that.

 

 


The "OMFG PUSSIFICATION DANA IS A BITCH" people are clearly unbalanced and need carnage to reach their desensitized brains

Screw those people.

I've rewatched all the adcc matches where he was accused of being dirty.
Avellan :not even dirty.
Lovato Jr : not dirty
Galvao :both were rough /dirty

I'm mma there's only that one fight at mw that stood out to me where he held it a long time. Longer than this fight. Even with pierce I don't think it was horrible. Of course you must acknowledge his track record but for example if this got palhares banned I don't think bj Penn should have been allowed to fight after Jens bj 2. If this is a precedent than Penn vs pulver 2 is 10 times worse imo.

Bj gets a pass because he's bj? It seems very forced. I'm all for punishment but the lack of consistency is appalling.

You do have great points though. I highly respect you. Phone Post

Marquardt did come out,'wet'
He did not grease though Phone Post

NinjaNate - I have never posted on the UG - rarely post on the OG and its sub-grounds...

I just watched this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYfe07LVDW4

I don't know this interviewer fellow is but he obviously has the same mentally as a 2000 Jim Rome, ie MMA is a brutal sport with a bad rep, it should be banned, etc etc.

Dana White completely caved to this guy's 101 media bullying tactics. Which is very surprising and he sells himself as a stand-up but rough around the edges kinda personality.

Palhares should not have been cut without an investigation into what his motives were. There's a lot of forum members saying that the fight isn't over until the ref pulls you off (Sonnen vs Silva anyone?).

That ref was extremely timid - if BJM was in that Octagon we wouldn't be having this debate.

The banning of Palhares was a premature move made by a man who was under pressure to appease the mass media.
Agreed 100% Phone Post 3.0

Casehearts- I know. Its a circular argument. Im glad hes gone. I think ill go watch the massacre Hendo laid on him to help me fall asleep....

Sweet Dreams all! Phone Post

that's fair and thanks, likewise. I just think with the Okami type cut and with Palhares drug test and other times in MMA like Dipp  and Moura holding a sub/choke it's forcing the UFC's hand

The only defense is history with that one that BJ didn't get as bad. He was also the UFC lighter weight poster boy. I see everyone's point with that. Espcially with expelling Babalu 2 months later for it.

Can you edit this mate in a little confused Phone Post

Nvm you got it. Thanks. I don't know if it's forcing wanting. Thiago silva behavior Imo is far worse and failed multiple drug tests. Phone Post

no one is defending Penn, does he have a history of holding subs too long like Palhares? stupid analogy.

Nothing in palhares career comes close to that Imo. Its my a bad analogy that shit was horrible. I mean that's one of the worst. Yes Paul has done it to a lesser extent more times. But Imo that was much worse but you can disagree. Phone Post
