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."

Rousimar Palhares tells Tatame that he's not looking forward to fighting his good friend and former training partner, Alexandre "Cacareco" Ferreira, at UFC on Versus 3 in March: "The boss told us to fight, so we’ll have to do it, but I don’t like facing a Brazilian, specially when it’s a friend of mine, like Cacareco. It’ll be weird to see him on the other side of the octagon ready to fight me. We’ve trained together for many time, we’ve helped each other a lot… I really like him, I consider him a good friend and training partner. As I see it, it won’t chance our friendship one bit, and I hope he sees it that way too. I don’t know how it’ll be like, but we both will go for the ground game."

UFC middleweight Tomasz Drwal finally speaks out on his loss via heel-hook to Rousimar Palhares at UFC 111. "Sh** happens to everyone, and it's part of my job to deal with accidents," he wrote. "I'm not going to complain. This time around was good for him and bad for me. I think I was under an overall dark cloud anyway because I also lost my wallet with important documents while in Newark. So I am really looking forward to better days." "I felt a slow and weird crack in my ankle, so I tapped and screamed. I think when someone taps and screams it means that he's done, that he concedes the win to the other guy and that the guy should stop the hold without fearing any misunderstandings with the ref. But truthfully, I have no idea what went though his head. I will not judge him and simply leave it to the fans to make up their own mind." "[My] knee and ankle does not need surgery and it was just a strong stretch. I do have fluids in my knee and my ankle creating some swelling but it's getting better everyday. I think I'll be able to come back to 100% and be able to train in two weeks time." HT: MMAFighting.com

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."
