    I just re-watched Rothwell v Mitrone and while I admit that rushed TD was a bad move by Mintrone, once he was caught in that neck crank/choke, he tapped immediately because he didn't want to die.

    I saw a thread bashing Mintrone with "quick tap, what a wimp" comments. My question is - what the fuck would you have Mintrone do once in that situation ? It's not like Rothwell is a flyweight. He's a massive, crazy strong, ox of a HW. Talk is cheap, real cheap. I don't understand the hate Mintrone got after that fight. How is it a "quick tap" when it's a matter of serious damage to the neck if not worse ?

    I guess that would have sounded like "urrghurreruurrrghuuurghh". That shit doesn't work with Big Ben.

    That song 'Bob' would be perfect. All palindromes- I'd think that'd be very distracting.

    Of course mitrione tapped quickly, so did Barnett (who's one of the toughest guys ever.) You'd think something like this would be common sense.

    Rothwell is a massive man with freak strength; putting technique aside, you simply CAN'T allow a man that large get a hold of your neck. Him full force torquing a choke is a scary thought; literally a couple of seconds to injure someone.

    I knew it was over once barnett gave his neck to that behemoth. Very scary to watch.

    No dishonor in tapping. Live to fight another day instead of getting seriously injured to prove some point. There are some subs that don't have a route of egress.

    the people you are referring to would never fight or put themselves in any situation where they could be vulnerable - they just sit back and judge others, easy and unfulfilled life choices

    I must have missed that thread. Dumb move by Mitrione to put himself in that position but he is completely justified in tapping there.

    Anyone who trains knows that if a choke is really tight you tap to that immediately, that's just an instinct. That gogo choke must be even nastier than most of the other chokes, so you just cannot not tap to that after you feel it for a second.

    Rothwell looks like he is trying to rip a head off with his chokes. I bet it hurts as fuck and is also pretty dangerous. His bear strength and his chokes are scary. Neck damage is no joke.

    A bear of a man like Rothwell squeezing your neck...if you dont tap to that you're going out.
