    He CLEARLY tapped.

    And then complained...

    Afterward he got flack from many MMA fighters and fans...

    ...but WHY did he tap and say he didn't?

    What do you think was going through his mind?

    Did he begin to lose consciousness...thus his confusion?

    Or do you think that he was just being an asshole?

    I still don't get it.

    He lost consciousness for a split second, it happens. You can see he looks completely out of it once Oliveira let go of the choke.

    He was going out and tapped reflexively without realizing it. So he didn't think he tapped until he saw the replay.

    Sometimes you don't realize or remember if you've tapped or not after fighting a choke until you're going in and out of consciousness. Add into the mix the adrenaline and fatigue of a 3 round war and it makes a lot of sense that he'd be confused.

    He forgot he tapped, he totally lost consciousness. It's so obvious he went out for a second and pop back in

    Kevin Lee is one of MMA’s biggest whiners and complainers, that’s why.

    Those who are understanding fans, think maybe he didn't realize after the fact that he had. Especially those who have trained and been choked out and almost choked out a few times themselves.

    Those who are less understanding fans that haven't trained don't care, just mock.

    And there is probably a 3rd gray area of fans somewhere in between those two groups.
