    Not here for tap shaming. Just thought it was funny anik says this and till immediately tapped 2 secs later.

    Anik is the tap-shamer. "Not the tapping type" implies that there's something wrong with tapping when you're stuck and will only risk serious injury, which is just stupid.

    Not sure if its supposed to be a compliment, the "tapping type" that Anik looks down upon includes:

    Fedor Emelianenko
    Georges St Pierre
    Kazushi Sakuraba
    Anderson Silva
    Dan Henderson
    Michael Bisping
    Conor McGregor
    Randy Couture
    Shogun Rua
    Etc etc etc ...and the majority of the UFC hall of fame lol

    Anik is an idiot

    He wasn't tapping, he was trying to let the ref know he's moving to 185

    Now if you tap to a kneebar to avoid permanent injury that's one thing, but if you tap to a choke that will only render you temporarily unconscious then you're confirmed weaker minded than Holly Holms and deserve to be slut shamed.

    I don't think Anik saying it implies what you wrote, but rather implies that he considered Till to be the type of a fighter and a person that would go out before the thought of tapping even crossed his mind, and saying that doesn't imply there's anything positive or negative about that trait, just an attempt at an objective point of view.

    Obviously he was wrong, but I didn't find the phrase itself all that awkward or demeaning.

    I think his logic was he's never tapped before. He probably saw it on his stat sheet

    it's only because Jon thought Till would rather sleep than tap which it looked like was about to happen

    My point is that there is nothing to base it off of. He wouldnt know. He can think he knows what any fighter would or wouldnt do in a certain situation but he doesnt. I mean, if till had previously loss via submission and didnt tap, then it would be justified. The dude had never lost until last night, as a commentator, prob shouldnt comment what they think a person might do in that situation.

    Edit: "saw it on the stat sheet" went right over my head lol

    Let him get put in that choke and see who is the tapping type.

    I took a dislike to Anik the first time I saw him, it was before JDS vs Cain and he was highlighting the submission threat that JDS posed, based on his submission victory over crocop.

    Anik is a bitch that shaves his head for street cred even though he has a perfect hairline. Joe needs to get him on HGH/Alpha Brain/Stem cell injections before I can even take him seriously.
