At my gym both boxing and MMA guys train but its a boxing gym so everyone trains boxing while there. One of the MMA guys there had a fight last week and KO'd his opponent. Then the discussion came about would you rather be KO'd or submitted. Then it was would you rather KO someone or submit them.
One argument was if you submit a guy its like him saying, "I give, your the better man/fighter." The other argument was if you KO him your the better man/fighter because you where able to set yourself up in a position to stop him and there was nothing he could do about it.
So the questions are would you rather be KO'd or Submitted and would you rather win your fight by KO or submission and why?
I'd rather be submitted and I'd rather KO someone..When ya KO a dude,he's unconcious and is more dramatic than a guy tapping out..To see a guy tap is just like,yeah he got him in a lock or choke(in a skilled way though)..KO's just look way doper and are more savage..
I'd rather submit because it's not going to be leaving me with damage to my head and possibly fuck up your brain and not allow you to move or talk for the rest of your life..Hell,even die..You're not going to die from having a broken arm or leg or be choked out and brought back a second later..Why do ya think boxers can't fight for awhile after being KO'd now a days??It's cause of incidents like when Baer destroyed a guy and he got in the ring shortly after with Carnera and took a jab and died..Yeah,you won't be able to fight for awhile if you have your arm or leg broken but it's less common(having bones broken from locks) I feel than a KO in boxing..Guys are tapping before the bones are broken in most cases I feel..I may be wrong but that's what I've noticed in the MMA fights I've seen..Am I wrong though(MMA fans)??
For the record,I have felt various submissions while training in hapkido and that shit hurts like hell..It more depends on the guy doing the submission on whether he wants to break the bones or not so you're at their mercy..Yet,I've never been KO'd or even dazed in the ring so I don't know what that feels like..Also,lets all remember the KO can come from a head or body shot..I have felt some nice body shots when being shown where "the right" spots are(I just stood there and took the shots)..Liver is a burning feeling inside and the floating rib can feel like you're being stabbed..
