    Given what happened to Erick Silva in the Matt Brown fight I had to reflect on what it is that really happens to guys after blitzing and then having their cardio fail. I truly believe it's almost giving fighters who's cardio fails, a pass, to say so. It's more about throwing everything you have or your best shots at a guy and quitting once you've realized you couldn't put them away. An example of cardio failing is Shane Carwin vs Brock Lesnar. An example of soul taking =

    Both Cain vs JDS fights.

    You basically become a walking punching bag when you gas.You can't defend yourself,can't think clearly and your head is a mess.

    Silva is tough, but he got beaten badly. He looked like he was permanetly dazed in round 2. Brown stole his manhood though. He beating him like he was a child.

    this. but Erick silva wasn't just gassed, he was over exhausted. but i agree that some guys just give up once they realize they cant put the other guy away.

    More like mental breaking. Hitting a guy with your best and he still standing makes one cry a little inside.

    The irony of it all was that, Terell was known as the "Soul assassin"

    That being said, lets wait until this guy makes his debut in the ufc:

    I call that more of a prison raping.

    I do believe Lauzon served some time for that assault.
