What are the best examples of elite fighters "getting broken" that you can recall. I would guess the definition of broken is being able to continue but just not wanting to do so. Is that a good way to put it? I will start Jones made Shogun tap to strikes when most of sherdog thought he was going to be to experienced for the young Jones. This one is kind of iffy because the ref was waving it off but he did tap. Recently Tony broke Pettis. The look on his face when he was starting to gas covered in his own blood after droping tony earlier was primal. He did nearly everything he could to get out of that fight.. BJ "to the death " Penn quit on the stool vs GSP in the rematch. also, shit happens in fights. Fighters fighting bad asses can get broken. i dont think it makes them any less bad ass. Who ya got?
