The last time we saw Rousimar Palhares in the UFC, the guy received a 90-day suspension for holding on to Tomasz Drwal’s heel a little too long at UFC 111. Somewhere in California, Babalu threw his remote control at his television on that night. He then walked across the living room, picked it up, and regretted the decision ever since. The decision being breaking his remote control, not holding on to David Heath’s neck at UFC 74 which forced him out of the organization. In fact to this day, Babalu still claims that he did not intentionally asphyxiate Heath despite saying that he wanted to ‘teach him a lesson’ in his post-fight interview. Babalu is still my favorite guy to root for, that is whenever Rousimar Palhares hasn’t been injected with gamma radiation.
UFC Fight Night 22 comes on tonight at 8pm ET live on Spike TV and it will be headlined by Nate Marquardt vs. Rousimar Palhares. If you decide that something is more important than watching free MMA on a Wednesday night, Rousimar Palhares will get angry — and you won’t like him when he’s angry.
