Is more of a cardio issue than toughness issue!
I think it's more of a saving brain cells issue.
Tapping to strikes is really no different than tapping to a sub
If you're done you're done, why take unnecessary damage?
In every other sport, brain trauma is the most feared injury. In MMA, it's ok to submit to chokes and joint locks but submitting to concussions is weak.
There is a lot of tough guys on this board (with tons of fighting experience) that would rather go out on their sword, than tap to strikes. Shogun is obviously not a Sherdog member with 99,000 posts like Substance Abuse for instance, if he was that shit never would've flown. Not a chance.
especially at his age. it's not like he's fighting for legacy anymore. He's probably fighting for a paycheck or this is all he knows. Live to fight another day
Yeah this is a very stupid stigma. Funny thing is you could say tapping to a choke is an even bigger bitch move. Chokes don’t cause damage
Well they both cause brain damage. When your choked unconscious your brain essentially resets. Having this happen repeatedly isn’t good since your essentially cutting oxygen and/or blood flow to your body’s computer.
Shogun is a veteran. He is there to make some money not to prove his toughness to anyone. He's been around for a long time he knew he was done, nothing wrong with that. It's not some kid tapping to strikes in his first mma bout.
Ah, at last the time has come. My response to you is:
There is no evidence that blood chokes cause brain damage. Cutting off oxygen to the brain takes like 3-4 minutes before permanent damage begins.
There’s other risks in involved like you having a stroke later or your heart not restarting, but those are not realistically going to happen.
Seem like shogun thought he was going to die in there as Dean didn't want to stop it....
im more concerned with shogun trying to make his opponent tap by sticking his finger up they ass. Shogun what happened man?
Well then. Show us your cardio.
My immediate reaction was to bombard you with what I’ve always heard in jits and MMA gyms as to the dangers of holding chokes too long. Instead I did a quick google search and it appears you sir are correct and there is no hard evidence that it causes long term brain damage when under 4 minutes.
And your the prime example. Thanks buddy.
This wasn't about you.
