    Had never seen this before and thought to post for anyone else who hasn't, what are some of the best displays of sportsmanship in MMA?

    TJ screaming his head off in a sporting manner in Cody's vanquished face.

    Jon Jones choking Machida lifeless and in a sporty manner watching his lifeless carcass drop to the floor.

    One of my favourites.


    Another good one was Marquardt pulling up short when he cracked Maia. Could have smashed him there to seal the deal but saw he was done just in time.

    I'd go with this. IIRC Machida's original opponent injured and Munoz was a late replacement but they were training partners for that fight.

    After Donald Cerrone head kicked his friend Melvin Guillard, he said he held back a followup punch out of concern, and instead was going to choke him unconscious. In MMA that's pretty nice.

    Assuncao pulled a follow-up punch from a ko'd opponent at the very last moment.
    Glover is usually a gentleman.
    Rockhold propping Bisping in their first fight.
    Japanese fighters not named Aoki are generally very respectful.

    When Lawler KO-ed stiff Lindland, Robbie was so God damn nice enough to make sure Matt's curled in toes and legs were nice and parallel with one another as he went down and fixed them in that position.
