After eight long years in Murilo Bustamante’s team, Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares leaves Brazilian Top Team, according to a press release sent by the team on Tuesday.

“After a conversation with the head of the Brazilian Top Team (BTT), Murilo Bustamante, this afternoon, Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares called off the team claiming personal problems,” said the release.

Although surprised, Bustamante talked with the athlete, advised him on how to go on with his career and made sure to wish him good luck.

Palhares is going through a tricky time in his career after two consecutive losses in the UFC, one to Hector Lombard and another to Alan Belcher, and a positive result in his drug test with high levels of testosterone, which resulted in nine months of suspension.
