Rousimar Palhares: It's Time To Test Myself-Let The Best Fighters Come   [View Full Version]
DCRage » Posted 8/3/07 12:38:00PM

Going for his 4th straight win but also coming off a 90 day suspension for not releasing a heel hook after the tapout in his last fight, Rousimar Palhares feels like he's ready to face the likes of next opponent Nate Marquardt and other top fighters. "[Marquardt] is a great fighter, it will be a good test for me. I am working hard to develop and improve my game. My dream fight (is) a title shot some day, and if God helps me become a champion. I know that to reach my dream, I will have to work hard and fight the best fighters in the world. Right now I am feeling totally secure and confident about my skills. Let them come. I want the best opponents I can have. It is time to test myself against them."

I think Palhares might win a decision in this fight.

no way, he doesnt have better wrestling or striking that nate, ie he isnt going to win by decision. his best hope is another dirty leg lock

i see this fight goin 1 of 2 ways........
palheres gettin a vicious sub win or marquardt gettin the ko early as he did with maia....... would really like 2 see the 1st option..

Marquardt hardly has KO power, demian maia's chin isn't that great to begin with. As for Palhares, I think he has the strength to dominate the ground game and the speed to have developed his striking, but he'll have to have trained hard to win.

I think palhares has the right type of style to catch marquardt on the ground. Marquardt is very much a top control bjj guy who uses his grappling to maintain a semi dominant position. Palhares can shut that game down if its fought on the ground.
