After a great debut in UFC, the Brazilian Top Team fighter Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares faced the toughest challenge in his career, against the former Pride champion Dan Henderson, and the loss came by unanimous decision. Besides the loss, Palhares only sees good experiences from the bout. “I think it was great, because I wasn’t 100% in my physical strength and even tough I could take the fight till the end. It was a good fight for me and I think they (UFC) liked the fight and my style”, commented.

Exactly what I was thinking to be honest. Maybe join Affliction and do some undercard fights to up his game if it’s even prevalent.

Just reiterating that Palhares is not cut, and I don't know how anyone could have been lead to believe that from the article.

I can't wait to see him back. If it had been six minute rounds Dan would have been submitted. Give credit to Dan though, he was aware of the time and did enough to thwart the submissions till time expired.

I think he proved he can hang with the big boys, so I expect another top guy as his next opponent. Maybe Nate Marquardt.
