How did Philips walk away from this? The commentators didn't even say anything but when I saw it the other night I almost puked.
I can't even find any news on an injury.
Dave's fine. I just talked to him last night.
More importantly, he didn't tap. When you're in the Big Show, you don't tap to chokes.
Did his neck hurt? I thought he was dead for a second.
Here is the vid...
Sdave is right, Dave is fine. How he escaped injury is beyond me, but he is fine.
What was ironic was on the IFL show leading up to it where you met the fighters, Dave's coach was saying that you could break his arm and he would not quit.
I know it's real, but the positioning in that photo is so brutal it looks photoshopped. Glad there's seems to be no neck injury though. I'm guess this little clip is going to live on for a good long while on the internet. Hopefully your fellow Texan gets to create some other highlight clips in the future where he's on the delivering end of things.
...he's on the delivering end of things.Meh. He's nearly always on the delivering end.
After all, he's had 11 professional fights and he's only been submitted once. Everybody has an off night...
I was pretty amazed and glad that he wasn't injured.
He must have the neck flexibility of an owl.
You bitches need to try training with neck cranks. My nose has touched my chest before. Think about that.
Holy ****, that literally made my stomach go uuugh. I honestly didn't think a human neck could be that flexible.
um.....what is his spine made of?
I think it's silly putty, that's about the only thing I know that will stretch that far ;p
When I saw this on TV and saw him go limp, I was certain he was going to be carried off the mat (and there was a split second where I thought it looked even more extreme than the starting photo). I couldn't believe it when they showed him up and walking away 30 seconds later.
And to whoever was boasting about touching his nose to his chest: Good for you. Some people have more flexible spines. However, there is a night and day difference between touching nose to chest, and EAR to chest. Turn the neck and crank it like that, and 99% of us spend the rest of our lives being fed, clothed and cleaned by someone else (if at all).
It is easy to talk about what "should" have happened. But he should have tapped. Or more to the point, the ref should have stopped it (might have been hard as quickly as this stuff happens). In any event, a sport match isn't worth dying for.
