    What exactly does that mean? If you pass out and the ref stops the fight? What if you don't tap to an arm lock or something but the ref stops it anyway? (Mir Sylvia for example)

    Yeah, essentially. Or if you go unconscious because you don't tap out to a choke.

    A technical sub is the ref stopping it rather than a tap out, so yes, both of those examples.

    Basically, the ref "taps out" for you.

    Yeah you nailed it, another example is Al Iaquinta. Every sub loss of his is a technical submission since he refuses to tap

    Technical submissions is basically your body quitting before your brain does. You are "technically" submitted because you are rendered unable to continue but you never verbally or physically give up.

    technically, its not a technical submission since the fighter did not submit.

    It's where the ref makes the call instead of the fighter. Either because something is broken or they're unconscious and can't submit.

    Similar principle as a technical knockout, where the ref calls it when a knockout is inevitable e.g. a fighter getting GnP'd to oblivion.

    A technical knockout isn't a knockout

    But it counts as one.

    A technical submission isn't a submission

    But it counts as one.

    technical submission is a stupid way to call a KO or TKO

    a TKO is when a fighter cannot continue

    if his arm is broke, there you have the TKO

    no need to invent stupid things like technical submisison
