Things did not go well for John Fitch last night at World Series of Fighting 16. His opponent, welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares is notoriously known for his leg lock submissions. Palhares was controversially banned from the UFC for holding leg attacks for too long after the opponent had tapped. Holding on to a leg attack has far lengthier potential ramifications than holding on to a choke for a moment too long. Most times your opponent is going to safely wake up from a choke, but a knee bar or heel hook held too long means surgery and many months of recuperation. This latest attack looked painful, but was released in a reasonable time.
