Dana White: Rousimar Palhares banned from the UFC
Punishment came swift and harsh for Rousimar Palhares. Less than 24 hours after his controversial 31-second submission victory over Mike Pierce, Palhares has been released from the UFC.
UFC President Dana White delivered the news to ESPN's Jeremy Shaap on Thursday night's edition of Olbermann.
Thiago Silva reflects on his performance and his weight cut
"I think it was a bad fight, I had a bad weight cut which was my own fault. I disappointed the UFC, but I’ll make up for it. I had many chances to knock him out, but I gassed out. It was a bad fight even though I won. He takes punches well, but I feel I could have finished it and just didn’t have the energy. I am not pleased at all," Silva said after the fight.
