Heres an interesting question

I was watching the Pride Bushido Tourney. In the first match, Filho defeats Sakurai by arm bar. But Sakurai didnt tap. The ref stopped it. As it was stopped Mauro was like Filho wins by submission. But if the guy never taps, its not really a submission. Its not a KO..Is not really a TKO. Maybe MMA needs to step outside of the boxing terms, and invent its own. Or at least a new one. Id call it the TS, Technical Submission. Thoughts?

I know. I'm saying they should add 'referee stoppage' to the official decision options.
