    How is it okay to tap to a choke but not to tap because someone is beating the hell out of you and you can't defend yourself? I have been choked to unconsciousness it's not close to as bad as being beaten while you can't defend yourself.

    It’s the REFS job to stop the fight from strikes, it’s the WIMPS job to tap to strikes.

    Nah man. There is a code of honour among men. You don't tap to strikes. You just bleed.

    Yeah it's stupid

    If I tap to an armbar, or tap to strikes I'm saying the same thing: "I don't want you to inflict any further harm from this point forward"

    Weidman should have tapped to strikes versus rockhold. I'm still pissed off at that one, such a retarded referee.

    I wouldn't worry too much about that guy. I'm pretty sure his gimmick is being completely wrong about everything.

    People perceive it as with strikes you can still recover but with a submission that's locked in there is no way out.

    Like, tapping to a sub because you've already lost, you're going to go out/get a broken limb
    But tapping to strikes there's still a chance at recovery because you haven't been put away

    It's ridiculous how people criticize it.

    Yeah how dare a fighter want to prevent unnecessary brain damage.

    That might be the perception, but it's wrong. A fighter knows when they are done. Maybe they are injured. Maybe they can't see.

    Gsp nuthuggers still can’t let it go?

    there’s obvious difference between tapping to strikes n tapping to a sub

    with a sub you’re stuck in that position n can’t get out. Tapping prevents either going to sleep or getting your arm/leg snapped

    With strikes you’re not stuck in that position (unless it’s crucifix) n you can still move n try to improve your position. Tapping shows lack of heart or willingness to push through an uncomfortable position.

    Plenty of fights in the street end with one dude telling the other he's had enough.

    Mark Munoz could of used this method against Chris Weidman. Looking back, I don't think anyone would of thought less of Mark as man for tapping to that beat down.
