James 'Colossus' Thompson: I will NEVER tap in a fight again - Mixed Martial Arts News
Thank you Enson Inoue |

I was listening to the Joe Rogan Experience podcast a little while ago, and his guest was Enson Inoue. They were talking about tapping, something Enson never did.
Now I thought if you are caught in something there's no shame in tapping - you tap, you lose, you learn, you fight another day (I still think if your caught there's no shame in tapping).
Not tapping, once you've properly been caught, going to sleep or having your arm/leg broken just seemed like macho bullshit to me, but after listening to Enson, he surprisingly changed my mind.
I think this mindset gives you a massive advantage. It might get you broken bones, put you out of training a lot longer with injuries, but they'll heal, and I'm sure this stronger mind set will get me a lot more victories.
So I'm writing this now in public not to appear tough but as a way to help me change my mentally. Thanks Enson just though listening to you, I believe I've become a better fighter.
I WILL NEVER TAP IN A PROFESSIONAL MMA FIGHT AGAIN.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
