I just saw the fight this morning and as a person whose had knee surgery I was pretty disgusted by it. That is easily a career ending submission and could significantly inhibit the fighter's quality of life, ability to generate an income, etc. He tapped, and considering that Palhares is extremely experienced, he should have let go. He knew exactly what he was doing, and his excuse is pretty lame.

Main Event: UFC Middleweight & Lightweight Championship Bouts
Anderson Silva (15-4) vs Demian Maia (12-1)
BJ Penn (15-5-1) vs Frankie Edgar (11-1)

Main Card
Matt Hughes (44-7) vs Renzo Gracie
Kendall Grove (13-6) vs Mark Munoz (7-1)
Rafael dos Anjos (13-4) vs Terry Etim (14-3)

Undercard
Phil Davis (5-0) vs Alexander Gustafsson (9-0)
John Gunderson (22-7) vs Paul Taylor (10-5-1-1)
Nick Osipczak (5-1) vs Rick Story (9-3)
Paul Kelly (10-2) vs Matt Veach (11-1)
Demarques Johnson (15-7) vs Brad Blackburn (15-10-1-1)
Mostapha Al Turk (6-5) vs. Jon Madsen (4-0)


as much as i like both Renzo and Matt Hughes, think Hughes wins, and don't think it will be close with Silva and Maia and same with BJ Penn's fight.
