6. Rousimir Palhares
(Most despised fighter)

Rousimir Palhares loves submissions. He loves them so much that he can’t even bring himself to let them go when the ref steps in.

He was first suspended for this following his win at UFC 111. Palhares was again suspended and finally let go from the UFC after once more failing to let go of a submission following his victory over Mike Pierce at UFN 29.

He would move onto the World Series of Fighting, where he was again suspended by the NSAC for holding onto his submission against Jake Shields for too long after the ref stepped in. He now fights in Europe in defiance of his suspension in Nevada.
