Pic: Rousimar Palhares is working out, moving up to heavyweight & it’s horrifying
Good God almighty Rousimar Palhares just ate the welterweight version of Rousimar Palhares. There are glow ups and then there is whatever is happening to our beloved (feared) Paul Harris here.
“Getting dropped in a vat of radioactive waste” up?
When we last saw Palhares he was getting knocked out in Russia. Standard Paul Harris things since he was cut by the UFC for being a crazy person back in 2013. Fighter scared as hell shucks off Palhares spamming takedowns and heel hooks until the bulky Brazilian gets punched in the head multiple times over.
Just Paul Harris things, nothing to see here.
This welterweight fight happened in late March.
Fast forward to early August and we get Extreme Makeover Paul Harris Edition below.
Holy… somebody call Rob Liefeld, Palhares has vindicated the man’s entire art style [minus the pockets]. pic.twitter.com/69iFaC0GPo

Editor’s note: Pause in the post so you can go back and also look at Palhares’ beautiful new mustache.
Just look into those eyes and try not to let your ankles break from all of that new muscle mass.

Picture a MMA world where a 38-year-old Brazilian can have a career resurgence as a bulked up heavyweight? Is there a MMA timeline where Dream comes back for an one night Super Hulk Tournament in which Heavyweight Paul Harris is the final boss battle? Hypothetical, can Retired Super-Heavyweight Anthony Johnson form a pro wrestling tag team with Really Into Weightlifting Rousimar Palhares?
Just tossing all of that out there to the Fight Gods.
