A new photo emerges of Rousimar Palhares and he’s next level huge.
You ever wonder what it would look like if Ian McCall had a kid with Greg “The Hammer” Valentine? Wonder no longer, because Rousimar Palhares answers that question. Recently, a photo was posted of him and he looks like a Bond villain/Mortal Combat boss. Dude is just huge. Here’s a before and after for comparison sake.
The dude is absolutely massive. I’m not if he’s in training for a super-heavyweight fight with Bob Sapp or maybe getting ready to make his pro wrestling debut as El Giganto II but he’s pushing maximum capacity for his frame.
Last time we saw Palhares he was having a less than great weekend in Russia, where he missed weight for a title fight at 170 pounds and then got finished in under a minute.
Rousimar has dropped three of his last four fights. He was once one of the most feared submission stylists in MMA but got a bad reputation for holding onto submissions too long and purposely injuring his opponents. He was removed from the UFC and has spent time in WSOF and then has been on the regional scene.
It will be interesting to see what’s next for Palhares because he’s absolutely massive these days.
