Rousimar Palhares ‏Explains Why His Return to WSOF Is Delayed
Posted by Larry Csonka on 05.01.2014



- Yesterday WSOF Executive Ali Abdel-Aziz was upset about fighters not taking fights and stating that they need to respect the promotion. Many thought that this was directed at Rousimar Palhares, who had to delay his next fight for an at the time unspecified reason. Palhares' manager explained that this did not have anything to do with his client and that they had talked with WSOF about a personal situation and that everything was fine.

Palhares posted the following on Instagram, explaining his situation to his fans…

My friends, I love this sport, and I will never give up on a fight. Accept any challenge, is the mark of a true warrior. Unfortunately right now my family and I, we are facing a big fight, the fight for health, for life. My mother had 13 children, and devoted her life to educate and raised me, my brothers and sisters. At this point God tells me that I need to focus 100 of my life to take care of my mother. I'm doing everything possible, dedicating myself to the fullest in order to ensure that the person who put me in this world will be health again. It wouldn't be fair to John Fitch, to the fans that look up to me, and also with the WSOF if I go out there to performance myself without being in the best of my shape, technique and psychological conditions. It wouldn't be fair to the MMA, our sport always determines that the athlete should be at his best limit to compete, it is no room for a mistake. I understand that in the business field and as the capitalist world that we live in today that decision may not please everyone, but I'm a human being just like everyone else. As a good son it's time for me to take care of my mother, she needs me.
