It could be that the only guys taking fights with Palhares are guys who are either feeling like taking a big risk or are too desperate for a fight to turn it down. There is not a whole lot of upside to this fight if its one that you feel carries risk.Originally Posted by AlanBelcher@ufcnews.org
Also, it is difficult to create a hype video when the highlight reel is mostly some guy getting his ankle twisted off. Educated fans know that Palhares is dangerous and know that the heel hooks are brutal. Casual fans just wont know what to make of it. Topping it off is the language barrier (hard to build someone up when they speak only via translator).
