This wasn't the first time Palhares held on too long...

Somewhere in California, Babalu is throwing the controller at his television after watching the replay of Rousimar Palahares' domination over Tomasz Drwal via absolute leg hyper extension. When Babalu held on to his anaconda against Deavid Heath at UFC 74 slightly longer than usual, dude was tossed out of the UFC. Palahares does it, and he receives a 90 day suspension. However, this isn't the first time Palahares had separation issues with a well lodged submission. Check out his 2007 fight with Helio Dipp at Floripa Fight 4 in Brazil (props to CRE from The UG). It starts at the 2:05 mark.

Still not convinced? Check out his very next bout with Flavio Luiz Moura at Fury FC 4. It pops off (literally) at the 4:45 mark.

Hold up, he's not done. Check out this clip of his December 2007 victory at Fury FC 5 against Fabio Negao. Go to the 3:50 mark.
