You keep saying it could be a slap or trying to grab something, that is a straw man. Is that what CB did? Was he slapping or grabbing? No, he was tapping, it couldn't have been more clear. Fighters tap multiple times to make their intent clear but one tap can easily be enough if the ref is paying attention as he was here.
He changed his mind. He tapped and then decided he didn't have to tap but too late. Next time he'll know better but that was a fine stoppage.
