Winning for the third time in the UFC, Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares finished the fight against Lúcio Linhares with his favorite move: attacking the foot. “The fight was good, I won, what’s most important”, Rousimar celebrates, on United States, talking to TATAME.com by phone.

I think this guy is a legit threat to anyone, and he's only going to improve... He's strong as hell and seems to have a good chin. The only knock i have on him is his striking, he reminds me of a Demian Maia type.

But as we all know Demian does not have a great chin

He does have a good chin, Hendo hit him clean a few times, all of which likely would've KO'd bisbing

Anyway, the rest of his game is pretty solid. He has good takedowns, awesome on the mat, strong. He threw some crazy meia-lua's in the Hendo fight but if he gets some good leg kicks and punches down I'd be more confident to say he'll get a title shot soon.
