There is one guy at the gym that was a contender in the largest MMA organization in the world and I feel like I could tap him pretty much whenever I want. My question is, should I tap him and risk humiliating him by getting tapped by a rookie? or just keep not tapping him and just know that I could have?
That's not really an ethics question. I thought you were going to post about using roids or not. Yes you should tap him. It'd be less ethical to let someone think he's good when he's not.
