What is up with fighters and not wanting to tap out? There's nothing to prove by getting choked out. You still lose the fight, and by not tapping out you endanger yourself to not be able to fight another day. And since some people have this rule of just never tapping out, why is it all the sudden different for lets say a kimura or an armbar? People tap out to joint locks but they don't tap out to choke holds. It makes no sense to me. If your following a "I won't tap" rule, then why tap to an armbar? I mean your still crying uncle when you tap out to a joint lock. Doesn't make it any better than tapping out to a chokehold. Discuss.
