I always edit somewhere between 3-5 times! I guess I don't know what I'm talking about either.

Tokamak has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Being tapped out has never been humiliating, because I've never been extraordinary at grappling in the first place.

As a humble student who was submitted regularly in demonstration, it's hard to be humilated.
Absolutely! Finally, someone gets it! There can be NO bigger humiliation than being out to sleep by being deprived of air. Being submitted can be moderately embarrassing yes but at the end of the day, it can prompt you to go back to the gym and improve your technique. Even being hit hard and knocked out is more favourable because at least it involves raw power and strength and at the end of the day, anyone anywhere can get hit on a sweet spot and go down. BUT being slowly choked and put to sleep like a baby is the height if humiliation. The fact that someone hasn't even hit you but yet can not only control YOUR body, they also do it slowly and prevent you from in any way STOPPING them. The spectacle of a big, strong man flopping out like a baby is emasculating indeed. It's made even worse by all the close, tight body contact that the dominator has over you as such intimacy should be saved for your nearest and dearest in the sack - the fact that another man can get just as close and personal to you and then put you to sleep for your troubles is highly disturbing. If it wasn't for being inside a ring/cage/octagon, I'd be worried what the aggressor could/would do whilst unconscious. To many losses from being put to sleep would, by far, be more of a reason to quit the sport than being knocked out

Nice Necromancy Tokamak.

But since I've never seen this thread I voted being KO'd.

Reason.

I kind of always feel sorry for the guy trying to make sense of WTF just happened. It must be horrible waking up in the Octagon with your corner men trying to explain that you just got KTFO.

I've never thought there is any shame in tapping, if fact if you look back to the Mir v Nog fight I just thought Nog was a idiot for not tapping. I was like yeah well done Nog, you didn't tap but you still lost and now you're going to be in intense pain until the arm is reset... and a nice long spell out on the sidelines for you. If that had been a leg bar it could have ended him.

Besides, everytime you get KO'd you run the risk of your career being shortened or worse.

Wow. Old thread. It took me while to realize. Here is my go:

You get submitted by Palhares. You tap, he ignores it. You can even scream like a girl, but in the end, nobody will care or remember, because they will be hating him so much for that. So, you've lost the fight, but you get the public sympathy. He wins the fight, and gets banned.

Nog did actually tap against Mir, just a little to late Nearly having the fight won probably delayed the tap as much as the "Brazilian pride" he learned his lesson and tapped to Werdum.

He didn't learn the lesson, actually. He only tapped to Werdum after his arm was trashed, again. Hard headed Big Nog.

It did not break, because the force was applied at the joint but the delay in tapping (again) caused Minotauro's elbow ligament to tore and he had to undergo surgery for that, along a lot of physiotherapy time.

I think the humiliation really depends on the manner in which one is tapped or knocked out. That being said it varies from submission/knockout to submission/knockout. For example I think it was more humiliating for Ronda to break Miesha's arm and for Henderson to knockout Bisping cold then it was for Ronda to tap out Kaufman or for Renan Barao to finish Urijah Faber.
