Should Rocky have tapped?

Postby willis » Sun May 13, 2018 8:16 am

In light of all the coaching controversy in the Nunes v Pennington fight, there is a very real option for fighters who don't want to continue; the tap out.

So I ask you linker, should Rocky have put her destiny in her own hands and just tapped to start the round or was it the right thing to do, in listening to her coach?

She should have went out there and fuckin died like a warrior ! :lol:

Really tho, what was the point of booking these 2?

Michael Jackson raptor vs Rick P ?

The corner should have stopped the fight before round 1 started.

Awful matchmaking.
Awful main event.
Glad I stole that shit from the internet.

I Hope Colby rips her apart on Twitter:

This is a violent sport, but not one that anyone should take unnecessary punishment from. If a fighter says they are done, they are done. I've never understood the stigma when it comes to quitting from a fight due to strikes or any other reason. It's like people forget they are human beings. They have families back home. Are they just supposed to take the beatings for pride just so later on they have trouble forming coherent sentences and affecting their memories? I'm all for a good brutal fight, but at the end of the day, the fighter knows and the fighter should be the one making that decision unless the ref calls it before then.

Yeah, her corner should have respected her and stopped it. Save your fighter for fucks sake.
I'm so fucking high.

That was hard to watch. Shitty move for her corner to just say tough it out and let it all go when she tried to quit. That was rough.

In my opinion....the head coach should have gone in to the octagon, sat her on the stool, looked her square in the eyes and asked her if she was really done. If she said she was then I would have stopped the fight. If not I would have told her she had 1 minute to throw every punch she had energy for before I threw in the towel.

I certainly would have thrown in the towel after Raquel gave up her back and her nose was bleeding like a faucet, just eating shots to her ears as Nunes took her back. I would have thrown the towel at that point at the least.

THIS. The coaches need to respect the feedback they are getting from their fighter. If they recongnize that she is already OUT of the fight mentally, its their obligation to throw in the towel for her. Don't send her back to the thrashing machine with a weakened spirit....it can only end one way.
