Ex-UFC Fighter Rousimar Palhares Looks Freakishly Different In New Look
UFC veteran and former World Series of Fighting champion Rousimar Palhares got two years of suspension from World Series of Fighting after failing to release the dangerous submission when an opponent tapped.
In 2013, UFC released Palhares for good for repeatedly holding on to heel hooks long after the referee had to intervene and stopped the action. He left the promotion with a UFC record of 8-4. Five of those victories came via leglock.
Palhares most recently coming off a brutal KO in 58 seconds against Aliaskhab Khizriev in the co-main event of Fight Nights Global 85 in Moscow, Russia, back in March.
The Brazilian is currently slated to grapple Craig Jones at KASAI Pro 3 on August 18th, but if you notice at his current physique, he looks absolute ripped like a comic character. No doubt even he was one sturdy figure during his run in the UFC.
Holy… somebody call Rob Liefeld, Palhares has vindicated the man's entire art style [minus the pockets]. pic.twitter.com/69iFaC0GPo

Rousimar Palhares looks like a composite of Drake, Wario, Dick Dastardly and a sentient quadricep muscle. What a fucking man

Can you believe Palhares used to compete at Welterweight division? Now he looks closely middleweight or heavyweight.
