    That's along the lines of what I was thinking; no need to beat the guy senseless, take him down, pin/control him, and work for a submission. If he was so superior that should have been pretty easy.

    For all we know the kid could have been a good grappler and was waiting for a takedown and wasn't use to taking hits so was thrown off. I think it should have atleast gone the whole round and then maybe his corner would have thrown in the towel.

    Good lord, what a joke after watching the video... the "superior" fighter could have easily slowed down, quit hitting the guy in the head, or just let the ref do his job and stop the fight when appropriate.

    Honestly, I would probably prefer to be knocked out instead of being to humiliated that way. I mean I see the good intention but I bet the guy who received the "mercy win" feels like ****.

    **** that. That guy is a piece of **** for tapping out. It's disrespectful. That fight was undecided. Anything could've happened.

    You wouldn't quit a football game because you were up by two touchdowns in the first quarter, would you?

    He shouldn't have done it, it's a rough game and it's not his job to decide when the other guys had enough, it's his job to put him away. If he was that good he should have decked him or finished it.

    Wrong it was an amateur fight, no one had any sort of "job" to do in that ring other than have fun.

    While I don't agree with the way it was handled the guys heart was in the right place and the right attitude to have when participating in amateur sports.
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.
