    If Munoz would've tapped to strikes against Weidman he probably would've avoided being so badly injured.
    Munoz shouldve tapped out to the hair dresser before that fight.

    Those shots from the back were hard and dangerous. As a (once upon a time) fighter I can tell you that tapping to strikes is considered a bitch move, but tapping to strikes when in that helpless position is very understandable and acceptable (to a trainer etc...).

    Just my 2 cents:
    The position sucks ass and is every bit as bad as you said it is.

    Sonnen was not going to get out of it once Rashad gained the full mount.

    I knew you could do it!

    Yes. YOU, when it comes to Vitor Belfort.
    Burn!

    I am not saying that Rashad's punches were love taps but watch other fighters take literally bombs and they do not give up. Look what punishment Shogun was taking against Hendo (Obviously there will be some smartass posting a gif of Shogun tapping against Jones, so first of all I am talking about Shogun vs Hendo, and secondly Shogun anyway took way much more damage in that fight that Cahel did against Evans), look what punishment Maldonado took from Teixeira and I can name you many more examples of fighters that were eating huge amounts of bombs and still they kept fighting till the end.

    You can try to defend Sonnen all you want, he is a good wrestler but he has no heart.

    Also, you want Chael cut if he loses to Wand...can the same be said about Wandy if he loses to Chael?
    Depends on how he loses.
    Anyway if Wand loses he will be 2-3 in his last 5 fights. If Sonnen loses, he will be 1-4. Not the same thing, you know?

    Is there anyone on these boards that is more blinded by their hate than Pashak?
    Yes. YOU, when it comes to Vitor Belfort.

    I don't think Pashak knows what objectivity is.
    Oh sure, I am so sorry that I am not a fan of that Twitter clown.
    Sorry that I pointed the fact that he tapped due to strikes when nowadays it is very very rare that a UFC fighter tap due to strikes.
    But of course I have no idea what objectivity is.

    Did you miss the part where Sonnen tried to get up but was too dazed? Cause if you watch the .gifs or replays you will Sonnen try to get up but can't because he is out of it. No no, those punches where just love taps.
