HEY GUYS A POLL! What's more humiliating...

So what do you think is more humiliating? Also, if you train or do any sort of martial art, post it too because I want to compare someone's specific training (striking/grappling) with their response.


I vote getting Tapping or being put to sleep.


BUT WHY!? you ask?

Because when you get subbed, you're fully aware of what's happening at all times and you're helpless to prevent it. I think anyone can get caught (Charlie Z knocks mother ****ers OUT!). What do you think? DISCUSSION IS GO!

I voted for the KO/TKO as being more humiliating.

Reason being is that you can get KO/TKOed by a guy like Charlie Z, while I am sure a n00b on the groung isnt gonna put you to sleep/make you tap.

But a n00b can throw a KO punch.......

Congratulations you won!

You make a fine point, sir. I guess my inclination to be humiliated by being subbed comes from my confidence on the ground. I think I'm pretty solid there so if I ever end up getting subbed I'll take that loss WAY harder than if I get caught by some noob, because then I can just write it off as "Oh I got caught by a noob."

I voted getting tko/ko'd

Since I am much more experienced in the striking department. I'd have to question all the time ive spent in boxing/kickboxing.

Well it depends, I think if I sit in an armbar too long and my arm breaks or I dont tap and pass out, it points out either how stupid I am or how egotistical I am. If I get KO'd, I could have just had an off night or I could have just been utterly dominated. If it looks like Houston/Irvin or Silva/Griffin, that would be pretty bad.

I can't pick for sure though. It depends on the situation.

i think napping instead of tapping is valiant.

snapping instead of tapping is stupid.

getting KO'd in a fight your dominating has to be the most humilating. altho getting subbed in a fight your dominating is a close 2nd.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly, though in reality it would depend on the situation, anyone can get caught and KO'd or caught in a sub.

Like I think getting flash KO'd in the first 10 seconds is alot worse than say getting KO'd via knee in the 3rd round after a good fight.

Also folding up like an accordion a la Rashad and leaving a funny face is kinda bad aswell.

I tend to agree with everybody in this thread, so I can't really settle on a vote. To me, circumstances make a fight humiliating. Even a decision could be as humiliating as a sub or KO, if your opponent is not very good and you struggle all the way through the fight. A sub can be very humiliating if you're being stupid and therefore caught easily. With a KO, it gets a bit more personal, because it affects your resistance to blows, which you can't really change. However, if you're fighting say, Cro Cop and get KO'd, it's not as humiliating as it would be if you got KO'd by Kaleb Starnes. It's all in the circumstances.

K guys, to help you settle it, in this hypothetical situation it's a complete middle ground. No one is dominating or anything, just a good well matched fight. That help?
