I did not get to see the Riddle fight but I dont think Palhares should have got that we have seen people get away with worse.

I think others getting away with things is a dispicable reason to let others get off the hook. I think it's about time that fighters get punished for holding on to locks after the tap, he probably messed up Drwal's knee pretty good. Surgery, 6 months of healing/rehab at the least......and for what?

The intent may not have been malicious, but heel hooks are among the most harmful and painful submission holds. A 3 month suspension is a light punishment considering that's probably around the time we'd see Palhares in the octagon again, and really he should've been paying more attention. This'll hopefully help him be more attentive in the future.

Palhares deserves everything he gets imo. Drwal was tapping for a while. He even started tapping somewhere else to get Palhares to release.

not much of a punishment considering there was no chance of him being scheduled to fight again within 90 days with or without a suspension. Should've been fined or suspended for an amount of time that would have some kind of effect on him.

ref should have jumped in faster he was no where in site when the heel hook got locked,
90 days means nothing fights are booked up till july

The ref was trying to pull him off or a good two seconds. This is justified in my opinion.
