In addition to his UFC release and the loss of a likely $50,000 "Submission of the Night" bonus, Rousimar Palhares will have to deal with a suspension.

The 50k was never Palhares's to begin with, he wasn't guaranteed that money. So him not getting it really isn't a punishment at all.

At first I thought 120 days is a useless suspension but I thought about it and it's probably fair. 120 days suspension for ufc fighters is nothing. However, 120 days suspension for a Brazilian fighter probably means losing out on 1 or 2 fights. Just like Thai fighters, they probably fight once a month or more if they could.
