A very rare act of mercy

While not a fan of MMA, I do want to highlight this laudable act.


  1. You know, I am not sure that this act is all that laudable. A man competes in sport to challenge himself by continually pushing against his limits to overcome them. Part of this process is the experience of losing. Letting an opponent win is not mercy - it is an insult to a fellow competitor.

  2. Yeah, but recognizing that you've won, and that you don't need to put someone in the hospital to prove it to everyone else... that is a different type of victory.
