It wasn't a matter of tapping. He thought he was choking Royce and the referee stopped it. The only one who knows the truth is Royce.Sub By Armbar said:Personally I lost all my respect for Yoshida after his first fight with Royce. That was some real bullshit to take the win when he new that Royce didn't tap. It proved that Yoshida has no warrior spirit at all and knows nothing about being a real fighter or a man for that matter. I don't know how so many Japanese fans still love and respect that guy after that. I hope Mirko left high kicks his head and it explodes like a pinata.
I hear what you are saying, but I have read interviews directly from Royce and based on his track record as a honest and respectful fighter I will take his word over Yoshida any day of the week. I wish I had some links to the interviews.samurice said:It wasn't a matter of tapping. He thought he was choking Royce and the referee stopped it. The only one who knows the truth is Royce.
