Shortly after Rousimar Palhares defeated Tomasz Drwal with a first-round submission, Palhares apologized for injuring Drwal’s knee — and learned he had been suspended for failing to let go of the heel hook submission in a timely manner.

“I didn’t feel that he was tapping,” Palhares said afterward, in an interview at UFC.com. “I felt that he was pushing my leg. And I held on until the referee stopped the fight because I didn’t want to misunderstand. I didn’t want to hurt him. I was very excited about the fight. I’m really sorry if I hurt him.”
