    Who are some high level guys who have tapped to strikes?

    Follow up question. Do you count tapping to strikes as a submission or TKO?

    Submission because you submitted to your opponent; TKO is when a ref does that for you.

    Only if you're a brute and consider tapping to strikes cowardly.

    Tito tapping vs Shamrock immediately comes to mind.

    Edit: Can't really see the tap well from that angle, but he was tapping.

    Mirko Cro Cop verbally submitted to strikes to Junior Dos Santos.

    Soa Palelei tapped to strikes to Daniel Cormier, the only finish loss of his career.

    I've seen Drew Fickett tap to strikes. I thought Brian Ebersole, I could be wrong.

    Nothing wrong in tapping to strikes, unless brain damage is your thing.

    Would you still say that if Chael hadn't tapped to strikes?

    True but nothing was better than his reaction to Jardine finishing him. Wow.

    Your interpretation of the English language is correct.

    I remember when Rickson Gracie won a fight by RNC, and the opponent passed out because he didn't tap, so the announcer called it a KO.
