In the midst of the Rousimar Palhares controversy, the banned fighter has found an unlikely supporter. MMA pioneer Renzo Gracie has spoken out in favor of Palhares on Twitter, stating that fighters are “supposed to get hurt,” and condemning the ongoing “witch hunt.”

Palhares was banned from the UFC after ignoring the referee and holding onto a heel hook in his bout with Mike Pierce.
