Ah cool. Not sure that card was worth twenty bucks but nbd. Fite seems really solid. I should check out the Muay Thai or Kickboxing events they do.

I thought that was a grappling tourney at first with Jake and Story buried on internet prelims but it's even funnier than that.

Excited for Kasai Grappling 3 Tomorrow night! A great night of grappling tomorrow night in NYC @kasaigrappling in the Hammerstein Ballroom. The headline bout will be between outstanding Australian grappler Craig Jones and Brazilian powerhouse Rousimar Palhares. Mr Palhares was supposed to weigh in at 185 pounds but showed up at 218, apparently unaware that he had to make a weight limit.

There is literally no way Palhares could've cut to 185 even if he tried given the pictures of him recently. He looked like he's been hanging with a silverback gorilla and Ricardo Arona

That's so common in the minor leagues it's not even funny. One of my teammates was a natural 125er, and he regularly had to fight guys 145 or above because either there wasn't anyone small enough with the experience to fight him, or the other guy just flat out didn't want to cut the weight.

He got an 8 second knock out on a guy that was easily 155-160 lbs. It was impressive as gently caress.

And he just sat on his knees in front of his opponent last night and did nothing. He lost on penalty points because of his stalling. Articles I’ve read said it was worse than schaub/cyborg.

Palhares was the boogeyman in this bout, a 218lb, 5'8" monster with a bad reputation of tearing limbs and injuring opponents. Maybe this infamy has finally had an effect, maybe it was Jones's own reputation as a limb destroyer, but this was the most subdued Palhares we've ever seen. 

The Brazilian refused to get off his knees and sat in front of Jones for the full 15 minutes, playing a defensive posture that offered zero opportunity for the Aussie submission specialist to attack. The problem was, Palhares did nothing to advance position and offered nothing of note throughout the match.

At one point, a voice in the crowd urged Palhares to get off his knees such was the level of inactivity during the match. 
Jones took the win via penalty points accumulated against Palhares.

It was the most undesired outcome possible. “I was focused on not dying,” says Jones in his post-match interview. “It looked like the Brendan Schaub approach." 

He's not wrong. Schaub became infamous in the grappling world for his awful stallfest vs Roberto Cyborg in 2013, so much so that "Schaubing" entered the grappling lexicon for somebody who runs away from a match. Maybe Palhares will no longer be associated with brutal leglocks, but instead with kneeling unmoving in front of an opponent

Lmao I had no idea. Brendan used to brag about that match, called it the “Schaub Shutdown” or some poo poo.

Yeah, he's spent years now telling anyone who will listen that they didn't understand what they were watching and that he shut down Cyborg's game (by doing absolutely nothing himself), but in reality it was a deeply embarrassing performance.
