After being effectively banned from two major MMA organizations in the United States, disgraced former World Series of Fighting (WSOF) welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares looked to continue making money outside of the country when he met Michal Materla at today’s KSW 36 from CRS Hall in Zielona Gora, Lubusz, Poland.
However, it didn’t turn out so well for the opponent-endangering grappling whiz, who was banned from the UFC after cranking a heel hook against Mike Pierce before being suspended and stripped of the belt by WSOF after he gouged Jake Shields’ eyes and held on to a fight-ending kimura for too long at WSOF 22.
Palhares took on Materla just over four months after losing by brutal first round knockout to Emil Weber Meek, and it looks like he could have used some more time off. Materla floored him with a massive uppercut 1:27 into the second round.
