i dunno if he made up his mind about tapping,he seemed to think about it then changed his mind,tough call for the ref

he tapped but ref didn’t call it move on and refocus. What would have been smarter is if you are a great grappler maybe try a takedown in the two rounds.

100% Tap. even Dana white said if the ref would have called the fight no one would argue.
Let me also add. Bisping is a freakn tool. I hope he gets knocked out again

If he tricks the tap, then Neace lets off a little thinking the fight is over. Then he gets out. Kind of like a Chael Sonnen attempt, but the ref thought otherwise.
One of the best refs too, but no one is perfect.
Team Miller should be 5-0

I am not sure if that was a tap or not… and dream on ‘Randy Couture’, Miller is not going to win this next fight with Bisping.

IDK, doesn’t it have to be something like three consecutive taps for the ref to call it? if that’s the case, this only looks like two to me.

don’t get me wrong. akira is still a douche, but fair is fair.

Yeah that was a tap but Neace said he was going to hold onto a submission longer before the fight than didnt do it and Akira is clearly the better fighter so I am not sweating it.

There was no ‘semi’ about how Sonnen conceded defeat. Perhaps some of you had a poor angle.

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 10-20-2011 at 11:53:27 from 74.233.246.121    

A single tap is not gona get a fight stopped, end of story. He touched Neace ONCE with open hand….doesnt mean crap. And on top of that, he didnt get out of the submission because Neace let him get out….his toes popped out while NEace was cranking….
But besides this, I think Neace won first round and should of gone to third round.

@SEAN_VANCE

Many fights are stopped with one tap (Sadollah vs Dollaway, Fedor vs Werdum, Sonnen vs Silva) for crying out loud… do you watch MMA?

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 10-20-2011 at 12:24:47 from 74.233.246.121    

@Muthai..one thing is a slow deliberate “one tap” while grimmecing in pain with nowhere to go..another thing is slaping the guy once, for a millisecond, and lost the submition 1 second after that…common now…stop trying to give the fight to the guy based on an ass slap. If he really had the submission he would of destroyed his knee…wanna see a real leg lock? Watch the Phalhares vs. Avellan video mr MMA fan…now thats a damn leg lock…

kuelniss Says, in 10-20-2011 at 12:45:38 from 24.84.200.247    

rainbow is correct. Lesson to be learned here is to always get an obvious clear tap before letting up. Herb dean did make a mistake, and I noticed Dana was hard pressed to make him look bad because he is generally pretty good.

mygif
Tempted Says, in 10-20-2011 at 12:49:14 from 67.161.231.133    

This was very clearly a tap. As soon as Akira tapped, Neace let go. Herb missed it. Had he not tapped his ankle would have been destroyed. My assumption is that from now on the fighters will hold submissions longer than necessary to make sure the ref sees it. This was cause broken bones and ruined careers, all from missed calls. Herb gets a pass because he is so consistent, but he did miss this one.

Clearly not a deliberate tap in any way, shape or form. If Neace would’ve cranked his leg off (and no he didn’t let go) the redneck arab haters (and no he’s not an arab) would’ve made he never tapped.

Blind hate is always cute though. ;)

Are u guys blind? Neace never let go, his foot popped out! Geez…look atNeaces hand grip and posture it never changed, the foot just pops out at the toes because Akira turned his body to his left….Neace never had a good lock in.

@SEAN_VANCE, It was 2 & you’re a noob.

@Righteous, “Clearly not a deliberate tap in any way, shape or form.” Then what was he doing? flailing his arm & hand around uncontrollably? lol
&
“If Neace would’ve cranked his leg off the redneck arab haters would’ve made he never tapped.” Both your sentences make no sense.

Here’s what I say. If i got a guy in a submission and for a MILLI second he “semi taps” – which is more of a reflex to be honest – then it wasn’t tight enough. want him to tap? YOU F*^KING MAKE HIM TAP. Or you rip off his leg. Watch palahares’ fights. There are no “SEMI-TAP’s” from his opponents. (Although even I’ll admit Roussimar could ease up a little bit)

he shoulda reefed the heel hook until the ref pulled him off. regardless if he tapped or not the damage wouldve been obvious, just ask avellan

Sean Vance…I agree with Muay Thai…Have you ever seen an MMA match before? Also, learn how to spell and use grammar correctly.

Fact of the matter is- He did tap, but there has been enough controversy in the past to know better in that situation. Especially when there was all of the frustration leading up to the fight. Until the ref says stop, in a fight like that, do what you have to do.

His foot did pop out, but Akira did tap as well before the foot popped out, so… whatever, neither Akira or Neace have what it takes to win the show.

@dtcards69, don’t lie, Chael never tapped to Filho and whooped his ass twice, he did tap to Silva and admitted it right there to the ref in the ring. It’s not your job to rewrite history you filthy liar… Oh, I went there…

i cant beleive people are defending HACKera, the dude tapped. Doesnt matter if it was a light 2 tap that he then realised he maybe didnt need to do. End of story he cried uncle then proceeded to be an absolute jackoff after the fight. Some bjj badass will remember this and snap his leg off next time.

that dude tapped.

right after he taps, there’s like a second of inactivity from him, thinking that the fight might be stopped.

but the other dude kept fighting, and the ref never broke the hold, so the fight went on.

im training to be an mma ref an that is a half tap which is at the ref’s discretion. Unfortunately it does look like Neace eased up without getting the official call which was a big mistake.

He was tapping. You don’t start tapping, and then change your mind. Even though Neace can’t stand this guy when your dealing with a lock like this permanent knee damage can happen quickly so this caused him to stop. And Bisping’s a bitch

tap monkey Says, in 10-22-2011 at 04:16:05 from 91.65.88.219    

On review I’m not so convinced. His hand moved towards his leg like he was gonna tap but then seemed to change his mind. All leg locks are f****** dangerous, especially if fighting is your living so its smarter to tap before its too late however, in this case it looks like he pulls out of it and i think he also shakes his finger to say “no tap”.

And about this whole coach versus coach hype,
you can see with a lot of these incidents that Miller wants to make it up with Bisping but for the sake of the hype train he can’t do it. Bispings behaving quite amicably in this season. The fighters are just pushing it to a new level. Akira and Neace are both dicks. I think Neace is the bigger Douche ultimately cos he pushes the limit more than akira. A pool ball in a glove, how is that provocative????

Miller is surprisingly a very good coach
Dobson is a punk snitch
