    Never saw this angle of the KO before. Looks like Frank had enough. Ref sees him tap and immediately calls the fight. Anyway, decent compilation of Hunt KO's

    The dude didn't want to eat another Mark Hunt punch, I can understand. Also it's bad taste by him considering he made fun of people for tapping back in the day. Then he tapped to multi opponents later in his career lol

    Gotta love how Hunt just walks by casually.

    He should have tapped to strikes against Carwin. It would have saved him half of his brain cells.

    Pretty sure at the point of falling down he was way to gone to even know how to tap

    It looks like his arm just flailing to me but who knows could be a tap. I still say no bc he was probably to scrambled to tap or maybe instinctively did tap. I dunno. Weird thing is I dont like mir and love seeing him get knocked out but also find myself rooting for him on occasion.

    No. His arm went backwards to catch himself as he fell back and then he just brought it back down to his side. He was probably in too much of a daze to tap out and would have had to collect himself for a few seconds to even recognize how hurt he was.

    Mir was checking to see if he could still make contact with the canvas. For a second he thought Hunt had made him the first death inside the Octagon
