What's your favorite form of stoppage?


HappyFeet

Recommended Posts

Knockout (KO) - Just a cold, dead stoppage delivered by a vicious punch, or well-timed kick.

 

Technical Knockout (TKO) - Watching the victim fumble perilously into an inevitable beatdown, however much he is trying to avoid it, he cannot escape his fate.

 

Submission (Sub) - The good ol' armbar, rear naked choke, kimura, leg lock--et cetera. Watching an opponent tap to superior submission skills is the best.

 

Tapping to Strikes - Watching the victim being beat down, and him being so hopeless that he just decides to put an end to his misery by tapping.

 

Doctor Stoppage - When a fighter is to cut or swollen up to continue going, and the fight is called right there.

Tap to strikes

 

It's just funny' date=' even when Shogun does it.[/quote']

 

Yes, when you see a fighter getting so beat down his will power flies away and in desperation they tap on the floor like their life is coming to an end any second. Yeah, for some reason I can picture that as the most satisfying way to win as well as the most humiliating way to lose.

 

Real Champions don't tap to strikes, they take their beating like a man and hope the ref hops in before their dental bill gets too expensive.

 

Although Vinny Magalhaes transition and submission at 152 was a work of art.

The Jones-Shogun fight was already stopped when Shogun tapped. That's why it's listed as a TKO and not Submission (strikes)

 

And "Real Champions" are the ones who win the real belt. Shogun, Jones, Machida etc. are examples of real champions, Condit, Bar?o, Carwin are not

the only people claiming condit, Barao, Carwin etc are champs are the UFC.

 

 

They are #1 contenders. But sure, lets bash these fighters for not defending a belt that we delegitimize in the first place

I don't think they should defend ****, since they're not the champs. They're waiting for a chance to face the real champ, which is smart.

 

It's not Condit's fault that he is the interim champ, the UFC are the ones who created that as a marketing ploy.

 

When Condit defeated Diaz he shouldn't get a belt but he should get the chance to wait for GSP

They are temporary champs at best. The others he mentioned, they are former champs, not champs, former champs. They were once champions for a fight or two, then took an arrow to the knee. Or a Jon Jones to the head. Depends on who you are looking at.
