omg thanks Connor.
I’m so sick of this Elitist bullshit, it’s submission grappling, whatever you want to call it.
But his excuse was pretty lame..”I didn’t know” lol

When you roll out of bounds you have to stop you dumb hick, it’s not a language barrier.

Huen’s opponent and the ref are a*******.He didnt tapped he just started punching him.How can he know he verbally tapped out if the guy doesnt yell or doesnt say tap.Anyways why does he verbally tap when he could’ve tapped out with his hand….

That is some straight up bullshit. I’ve been training BJJ for years and have never had any instructor at any gym teach me the word “puede”.

Conor got ripped off.

I dont know much or actually anything about this submission grappling but how is the guy allowed to sit on his butt the whole time, shouldnt they both start from a standing position. Secondly there where no punches thrown so I dont get that part either. Also I saw no tap. but if someone can explain me the strategy of butt scooting as not stalling and standing up not doing s*** is stalling shouldn’t the butt scooter be held at fault?

???? What the hell was that?? He released the submission WHEN THE REF TOLD HIM TO. So what if he verbally tapped or not in portuguese or hungarian for that matter… THE AMERICAN GUY LET GO WHEN THE REF TOLD HIM TO, as he’s supposed to do by the rules. So if he was fighting some vietnamese guy, would he have to know how they pronounce ‘tap’??

tap in vietnamese is “du-mai” fyi

That sux for him…totally gay…its like when Phalhares almost broke that dudes leg… totally gay rules. If you need to tap out well TAP OUT! Connor thought he just wasnt tapping, he meant no harm.

The word is not “puede” you idiots it’s “PARA” or “PARE” which means STOP.

If you do not know the difference between grappling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you should never get into a tournament of BRAZILIAN Jiu Jitsu you idiots

Sounds like a ego battle to me. Both sides are to blame. Confusion and Pride…lame…no body wins.

@Leone Azevedo – Isn’t it called the WORLD jiu jitsu no gi championship? And wasn’t it held in San Jose? Isn’t jiu jitsu Japanese in origin? Are all competitors required to know the acceptable words to verbally tap in every language spoken by the other competitors? I think if my foot was about to get snapped off by somebody who didn’t speak the same language as myself, I would actually physically tap the guy. Idiot

sometimes it seems that the Brazilians that compete in these tournaments get favorable decisions.

submission grappling :-)

Red X Says, in 11-10-2011 at 05:02:25 from    

Doesn’t look like anybody tapped, it was stopped for going out of bounds.

Weak excuse either way. All the terminology he needed to know is in the rules. http://www.ibjjf.org/rules.htm

There really are only 3 words to know.

What jack.perpetual said.

I think if your going to have a competition in what ever country it should be to that countries language simple, although connor did make himself like an idiot when not knowing that the difference between brazilian a nationality and referencing it to a language.
I have to agree it is submission grappling not BJJ because various grappling forms are being displayed although the majority of the fighters practice BJJ you have CSW along with other martial arts that apply to the ground . This competition is misrepresnting itself when calling itself a BJJ competition. IMO

MMAGiantSilva Says, in 11-10-2011 at 16:34:02 from    

So i guess nobody knows since my question wasnt answering how is the guy standing stalling and the one butt scooting not?

silverandslow Says, in 11-12-2011 at 00:20:44 from    


Where do you see brazilian there? Its Jui Jitsu not brazilian, brazilian is a variation of jui jitsu. Should the people know japanese too?

How many times have we seen a guy let go of a submission when his opponent verbally/weakly taps and the ref lets it continue? Then the general consesus is you hold it until te ref stops you. Watch the video, the moment the ref stops him he breaks the hold.

The reason you need to be phyically stopped is because when your focused on what your doing theres a very real possibility you won’t hear someone verbally tap so its the refs job to hear it for you and PHYSICALLY make you aware. That’s why MMA refs literally jump on the competitiors when they call a fight, so theres no confusion. BS decision of a stuck up ref team.

I have never heard of this words before.How about going back to what the kid said english or japanese which is where the origins of the sport come from. The other player should also had been disqualified for punching huen. I have also seen this outburst towards Dave Camarillo when he beat
another brazilian. Seems like they take care of their own to me. All around bad referee all together.
