    Ronda subbed Ediane Gomes who is a BB in BJJ but she's not very good.

    Remember when Almeida was the hottest prospect in MMA, then took 4 years off and was never really the same? Yeah me too.

    This is batshit "I Train under the gracies" logic.

    They refused to tap so he broke it. That is a submission.

    No, im a simple man when it comes to the definition of KO's and submissions. I don't give a shit what Wikipedia says either, no tap, no submission. some people are that crazy that they "would rather have their arm broken than submit" ...to quote a Gracie. Renzo is proud that he didn't submit to a broken arm...didn't submit

    Hughes vs Almeida was fucking epic. Just some major farm boy retard strength choke that probably not all that many people are capable off..and considering how late it came in his career a lot of people were writing him off. I wish he had retired after that.

    He can be as proud as he likes, but he lost the fight because of a submission attempt.

    Whether he tapped or not is irrelevent in the context of the question bar semantics

    Obviously it didn't count because he let go of it, but Matt Hughes could have easily snapped Royce's arm if he wanted to.

    Ricardo Almeida getting subbed by Hughes felt pretty big to me at the time. However, I guess you can say Hughes had world class grappling under him; he did train wrestling for over 2 decades...

    Recent one that comes to mind is Leandro Issa from Team Evolve.... was

    Lost to some guy called Doane by sub

    Context?, submission means to submit. this can be done across various things, sexually, financially. Its not a terminology that needs changing. its pretty clear cut as it is
