Watch Jon Fitch Scream in Agony as Rousimar Palhares Cranks a Knee Bar at WSOF 16

If Rousimar Palhares cranks a kneebar after his opponent taps out and nobody’s there to see it, does it still produce outrage?

Well, the jury is still out. You see, Rousimar Palhares fought Jon Fitch¬†at WSOF 16 for the promotion’s welterweight championship. Just one problem: UFC on Fox 13 happened last night during pretty much the same time slot. The event, featuring the likes of Junior Dos Santos, Alistair Overeem and Nate Diaz, had enough star power to completely eclipse poor WSOF.

So nobody watched WSOF 16 (which, as Anderson Silva would say, is normal), meaning nobody was around to see Palhares grab a wicked kneebar and crank it until Fitch screamed. In typical Palhares fashion, he didn’t let go once Fitch started tapping. From what we can tell, nobody’s that mad because A. A lot of people probably forgot the two fought last night and B. It’s Palhares. What else do you expect?

The submission occurred less than two minutes into the fight, proving Palhares is that dangerous or Fitch overestimated his leg lock defense that badly.
