Rousimar Palhares' manager, Alex Davis, thought it might be slightly more prudent to seek out the expertise of an actual, licensed clinical sports psychologist following a series of head-scratching episodes involving his client.

Currently, there are only questions surrounding the Brazilian fighter's recent behavior, which has included blatantly ignoring referee instructions, wrongfully accusing opponents of cheating, and just about everything in between.

Why does it always seem like he's trying to bend the rules? Does he simply lose focus under pressure? Is he a dirty fighter? Could there be something more serious going on regarding his mental fitness?

That's right Chael, be nice to Brazilian Black Belts you dont want to fight.

Because Rousimar is your krypotine.

I think the title alone cracks me up. I agree with Chaels comments above, he's one of the few mw who I like and possibly one of the few that can do something new in the cage. Sub specialists are hard to come by, especially the leg/ankle/knee variety.

This could be a good move, it's really helped some guys like St. Pierre.

I dont think a psychologist can help him imo, he's just not the smartest tool in the shed unfortunately.

he should see just a normal psychologist, maybe he can get a reference a a psychiatrist who can write him up a good prescription.
