    Then he held it for 1.5 seconds too long. Derp.

    Amazing people are still defending this guy...it'd be one thing if this was a first offense, but how many times has this happened now?

    When you have a ref sliding right in front of your face and him trying to get you to relinquish the hold and you don't break immediately, that's some foul stuff.

    If he had no previous history of this shit, then fine, slap on the wrist. But this guy has something wrong with him, and it's more than just "adrenaline."

    The point of submissions in MMA is to put someone in a compromising position until they surrender, given a reasonable amount of time.. This isn't NHB fighting, FFS, Pearce tapped pretty damn quick and it seemed like this guy just wanted to inflict damage.
