Rousimar Palhares' ankle lock on Mike Pierce was so brutal that the UFC ruled it 'unsportsmanlike'

Rousimar Palhares' ankle lock on Mike Pierce was so brutal that the UFC ruled it 'unsportsmanlike'

Shortly after Paul Harris' herculean ankle lock over Mike Pierce, Dana White announced that Palhares would not get the submission of the night bonus due to the lock being held too long. UFC officials have also deemed it to be 'unsportsmanlike' and they're investigating it with a potential for additional punishment.

After watching it again it seems like when the ref jumped in, Palhares let go of the sub so I'm not quite sure why the UFC is reacting so severe. Check out the full finish below and decide for yourself.
