    Can't sell a story without creative editing. Still, the initial video didn't look that bad to me, but the full video just shows a guy losing not getting destroyed.

    Here's what I find interesting, I have YET to find a post fight interview with Jeremy Rasner. The internet is awash with what a great "quitter" and true sportsmanship is "giving up with less than 20 seconds left is awesome," but no post fight remarks from Rasner.

    Sorry, at this point, anythingRasner states now would seem rehearsed and tainted.

    Thank you for sharing this. Honestly post like this remind me that I do not have a "fighters" mindset.
    I should be clear I see nothing wrong with that sort of mindset I just don't have it.
    I think I will have to stick to grappling where even if I am completely dominating someone I don't have to really hurt them to continue.
    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.

    Strike is a pro fighter you are not. The end. Nothing wrong with not having the "killer instinct" at all. People claim they have it, but many people do not and that is fine. This is what amateur sports is for, IMO, it is to test your mettle and see where you stand.

    To me, it shows something lacking in the tapper in this specific case ONLY.
    Here are some of the logical fallacies in this thread:
    "Compassion"
    "Job"
    "sportsmanship."


    I googled and had a laugh:
    MMA fighter Mike Pantangco sportingly taps out to ...
    Mike Pantangco's Kind Act Toward Jeremy Rasner Shows
    Beautiful fighter taps out to save opponent punishment .
    I didn't want him to get hurt: Mike Pantangco amazes crowd

    Personally, I'd be training and asking for a rematch. I didn't fight and I find all of that insulting. It has turned into Mike doing Jeremy a favor.

    Strikistanian showed all of those above qualities and he didn't quit.

    He showed compassion and kindness by going for the submission instead of giving the guy a bad concussion.
    He did his "Job" by keeping the fight entertaining.
    He showed sportsmanship by "not cheating" and "embarrassing" his opponent.
    He did an armbar so, his opponent didn't get hurt.

    I do believe that your right in the fact that most people lack the "killer indistinct" combined with the fact that all of these same people do not compete in anything and never really have.
    Which I think goes a long way to explain the whole.

    The opponent signed up to get hurt, armbar or choke him if you don't want to "hurt" him.

    Of course if you watch the full video you can see that the guy that tapped didn't have the ground skills to do so at will. He was good enough to get back up off the ground. He was the better striker.

    Seriously?

    Your calling a man who lives up to pretty much all of BS.nets ideals, who is training and competeing full contact, a ******?

    he has skills on the ground and I would not like to get my face in front of his strikes

    I reserve the F-word for people who, say, talks a lot about MMA, but do not compete or even train

    I wonder HM, would you call him a ****** to his face?

    Oh, and well done guys for turning compasion into a negative trait
    He's a ******.

    I wonder HM, would you call him a ****** to his face?
    Now accepting donations for meals and travel so I can call him a ****** in person.
