A bizarre incident happened recently in an amateur MMA fight, Mike Pantangco felt sympathy for his opponent Jeremy Rasner and didn't want to put him in hospital, so simply tapped out of the match.
The forfeit startled the crowd as Pantangco was clearly the more technically gifted fighter and had an easy control on the contest.
The two amateur fighters were competing at the savagely named Prison City Fight League in Michigan.
Rasner was clearly overmatched in the contest but his toughness kept him standing and fighting, Pantangco recognising that he was far superior to his opponent felt remorse and didn't want to continue the fight.
Pantangco later explained his decision to 'Inside MMA', he said: "I just feel that there's no point fighting him because he didn't train against me and I didn't train for him and I just feel like we're amateur fighters," he said. "We don't get money, we don't get paid, and I know that the only thing I'm going to finish the fight is him to go in the hospital or get hurt. I just feel terrible so I'm just going to give him the win."
Quite incredible behaviour in such a viscous sport and acts like Pantangco are not often heard about in the MMA world.
