Initial X-Rays have revealed no fractures in the left leg of Tomasz Drwal after being heel-hooked by Rousimar Palhares at UFC 111 on Saturday. An MRI scheduled for Monday will determine if Drwal suffered any ligament damage or sprains. Palhares also explained himself further: "I had no intention to hurt Tomasz," Palhares told MMAjunkie.com through his interpreter and manager, Alex Davis. "I never have; I am not like that. "Unfortunately, there have been cases in the past where guys have tapped and then said they hadn't tapped. This happened in a match in the UFC between my trainer, Murilo Bustamante, and Matt Lindland. Our attitude is to hold the position until the ref interrupts to avoid this happening to us again." "I did not think the suspension was fair," Palhares said. "I did not have any intent of hurting Drwal. It was in the heat of battle, and I wanted to make sure I did not lose the position. I was just waiting for the ref to interrupt the match." "I just wanted to make 100 percent sure I had it," Palhares said. "I have been through similar situations where I have lost positions due to oil and Vaseline that my opponents had applied to their legs."
