UFC Primetime2. BJ Penn is hilarious. True words though. Regardless whether it's for safety or fear, tapping to strikes is a bitch move. Tapping to stop your arm from getting torn off is legit. But tapping from strikes is a different story. You fight until the ref stops the fight.

Edit: Here's the gif of the taps.

haha yeah, I pretty much agree with BJ on this one.

I hate it when people tap from strikes, you will KO me before I tap from strikes.

I guess in some situations you would have to if the ref is not doing his job but if all refs were right on with there calls than yea it would be a bitch move

BJ wishes he could have tapped to Hughes but unfortunately his arms were both trapped! Hehehehe
I don't have a problem with tapping if you're taking shots and cannot possibly get out of the situation. Why risk injury or chance not being able to get back in the ring sooner.,
AS my Muay Thai coach says: "there's not pride in getting knocked unconscious"

For me, its about about the pride, its about having heart and not giving up.

If I can still punch back and block, then I am not done.

I see why he said it, its a fine lline between bravery and stupidity i guess!

However i think this is just a small dig at GSP, get under his skin a little.

Knowing Georges mind, i think its all fun and games

but most of the time when people tap is when they can block and punch back and are takeing a beating from mount or some one has there back and the ref just kinda stands there stareing out into space

BJ is correct and GSP has little heart and after the 31 st BJ will have 2 titles

I don't think so.

I rarely see people tap from strikes where they were really getting hurt bad.

it doesn't matter if he loses, but if he taps to strikes like georgy boy has done in the past then he will have to eat his words.

hughes pounded the crap out of his face and he didn't tap. if he didn't tap then, i doubt he will tap to georges

Usually cause they are so disoriented but I see where you are coming from..

GSP was on his back.. that is a decent spot to be in.. easy to defend from..

kinda lame...

But if someone has a good body lock and they are on your back.. or they flatten you out.. it's tough .. those shots that you don't get to see coming..

I really think BJ is just doing what he always does, trying to sell the fight. The more BJ talks the more we talk and that builds interest in the fight.

nah, he would have just done like Hughes against GSP in their last fight if he wanted to tap....and that's to verbally say it.

Says you. The more a fighter talks like an idiot the less I want to see them fight.Because if they are going to fight it means we have to listen to them talk crap for weeks on end leading up to it:blink:

I'm not concerned with what everyone says/thinks about BJ Penn. When he came over here (which is a big thing in my mind) to see us in Afghanistan, he was very cool. He was approachable, funny, and just easy to talk to.

Later.
