Just thought about a few matches where the winning fighter was beating on the other guy and either slowed down purpose, pulled punches, or signaled to the ref his opponent had enough. Most recent one I remember was I believe Matt Brown vs Pete Sell, near the end of that match, Matt Brown looked at the referee and signaled and said something to him along the lines of Pete Sell having enough. I remember a fight where Murilo "Ninja" Rua in Pride where he just literally stopped kicking the guy and talked to the ref like he didn't wanna hurt him anymore and the ref stopped it after he said that, which was kinda dumb cuz the ref should know when to stop it. I believe it was against Daijiro Matsui. Not 100% sure about this one, but IMO, in Shane Carwin vs Junior Dos Santos, I think JDS had at least a very slight at least reason why he just literally backed off of Shane was he had a bit of a conscience. Yes, you could say he got tired in his hands from punching him, but the way he backed off just instantly and there was like a moment where no action happened made me wonder if he was at least just a little bit pulling punches. Alex vs Rafferty in the 1st TUF finale. Alex was beating on Rafferty with GnP and punching his face at will, Alex paused and looked at the ref. Ref said keep going so Alex punched him one more time and ref stopped. Whats some other instances of fighters maybe pulling punches?
