I really don't understand his reaction. Is submission from a bodylock somehow worse than submission from an armbar, kimura, or RNC? I'm really baffled that he lamented his win after the fight. He should be ecstatic that he finished someone with a move that virtually no one is ever finished with. I really don't understand. I understand not wanting to injure your opponent, but he didn't know if guymon was injured the instant he tapped.
To me it seemed like he was disappointed that he didn't get to beat guymon up for his win, which seems pretty contradictory to being upset that he was injured.
u dont understand!
there is a difference btw hurting someone, beating someone up and injurying somenoe. most people dnt go out and want to injure the person they are fighting injuries such as breaking an arm, leg, neck, tearing a muscle etc.... much different then hurting someone by beating them up....
he is saying he wanted to hit Guymon thats what he was trying to do, and he is upset that #1 he injured him, and #2 that he injured him with a move that wasnt intended to even hurt him was intended to allow him to beat him up....
I think actually you don't understand, because I addressed everything that you just said in the initial post.
Notice this sentence:
"I understand not wanting to injure your opponent, but he didn't know if guymon was injured the instant he tapped."
Which basically addresses everything you wrote in your post. Johnson was expressing his displeasure before he even got off of Guymon's back. He expressed agitation toward the ref as he waved the fight off, not remorse for having hurt his opponent. This is the "reaction" I'm referring to, otherwise I would've said I don't understand what he's saying in the article. Everyone is going to say the right things days later in an interview with prepared statements, I'm talking about his immediate reaction at the end of the fight. It was very clearly not concern for injuring his opponent.
I'm trying to be as diplomatic as possible, but the truth is that I really don't want to engage in further conversation with you because I've seen many of your posts and I don't believe you actually take the time to read the posts that you're responding to, which makes any kind of real conversation both impossible and incredibly frustrating for the other person. I think maybe you read the first 1 or 2 sentences of what I wrote and rushed immediately to the "quote" button. You don't really ever try to have a discussion, you make assertions and declare opinions as facts, usually quite condescendingly.
