Rousimar Palhares is standing by his words, saying that he never did anything cruel or intentional to hurt Mike Pierce at UFC Fight Night 29. As most of the MMA worlds knows by now, Palhares held a leg lock too long after Mike Pierce tapped to the submission, which subsequently forced UFC President Dana White to terminate Palhares’ contract for unsportsmanlike conduct. Since the release, Palhares has gone to Twitter to explain his position, but this video is the first time Palhares discusses the situation on camera. The footage is in Portuguese, but English captions are included. “I did not do anything to hurt him,” Palhares says in the video about Pierce. “I just wanted to ensure my victory. “I ask you [Dana White] that you forgive me,” he added. “I’m sorry, OK?”
