Figured we should make note of this because we are a website that covers MMA and not just UFC (though for the right price …). Last night’s WSOF saw Rousimar Palhares do what he does: get a submission and then try to hurt someone with it. In the third, as Jake Shields shot in, Palhares grabbed a kimura, used it to sweep Shields, and got the tap. Then the tap again. And again. And then the ref grabbed him but still he held on. Eventually, Evil Boo Radley let go.
Shields threw a little punch at the Simpleton because, well, he was pissed at having his shoulder be in serious danger.
More newsworthy than Palhares doing what he does every single time he fights was Nate and Nick Diaz, well, also kind of doing what they do.
Likely enjoying some external happiness, Nate started yelling at fellow UFC lightweight Khabib Nermagomedov. The highlights of all this were Nate throwing a punch at him, Nick throwing a beer, them going outside and Nate STILL going after Mr. Russia. For those keeping track, this is the second near riot the Diaz brothers have started during a show Shields is fighting on.
Someone has to suspend Nate for this. And WSOF said he’d banned from all events. Talk about living your gimmick. Oh well. If they didn’t we wouldn’t care, would we?
