After garnering attention for a series of bizarre incidents in recent fights and grappling competitions, UFC middleweight, Rousimar Palhares is now seeing a sports psychologist. His manager, Alex Davis, spoke to MMA Junkie Radio: "It's a mixture of things. There are a lot of variables. Yes, Rousimar is a very simple person. He comes from a very simple background. He comes from a background that somebody here in the United States would have a very, very hard time understanding. But he does tend to go on automatic a lot, and that's something we are trying to straighten out." Photo: UFC.com

After he was mysteriously removed from a bout with fellow Brazilian Rousimar Palhares at UFC 134, Alexandre "Cacareco" Ferreira has now been released by the UFC according to his manager, who spoke to Sherdog: "Unfortunately, Cacareco was released by the UFC when he refused to sign the contract to fight against Toquinho," explained Borges. "He was called to fight at ‘UFC Rio’ in March, and when he found out that the opponent was Palhares, he started to claim difficulties with making weight. Ferreira then said it was better for him not to sign the contract, and he didn’t decide what to do until, eventually, the UFC got tired of waiting and released him via letter." "When I knew he was looking for a team, I called Rudimar [Fedrigo, leader of Chute Boxe] and told him to hire Cacareco," said Borges. "However, [Cacareco] showed no interest in training, even when he signed with the UFC after almost a year of trying to convince [UFC matchmaker] Joe Silva to give him a shot. He knew I was close to making the deal for him, and he still went on a TV show to blame his unluckiness."
