WSOF closes its doors on Palhares
WSOF is not signing Rousimar Palhares according to the organization's president Ray Sefo
Three of the biggest MMA organizations have closed its doors on Rousimar Palhares. Bellator has already nixed out the possibility of signing Palhares following his expulsion from UFC. Now, it’s MMA World Series of Fighting’s turn to reject the notorious submission artist in their rosters.
In an interview this Monday, WSOF president Ray Sefo has stated that their organization has no interest in signing Palhares.
“His past is not good,” explained Sefo. “The team and I have talked about it. He needs to probably seek some sort of help or talk to somebody, a psychiatrist or whatever, that can help him get away from hurting fighters.”
“Until he does that, we won’t look at signing him anytime soon or anything like that.”
Jon Fitch fully agrees with his company’s decision. The former UFC welterweight contender says that he will not accept a fight against Toquinho until he drop his vicious submission approach.
“He would have to definitely prove that he is no longer out there trying to cripple people after the fight is over.”
“It’s just not what our sport is. I mean, we’re trying to beat each other up, but when somebody concedes and gives up, you don’t continue to crank on the submissions. You can end somebody’s career that way. It’s just uncalled for.”
