I have been a Mixed Martial Arts fan for many years, and over the years watching the different shows, one thing stands out, Japanese fighters rarely "tap out" to submissions such as chokes, armbars or kneebars...
They say it is their "Bushido" (warrior) spirit that tells them, if they were to lose, then they should die on the battlefield... for those of you who don't know what I am talking about, tapping to an opponent's submission attempt means you are accepting defeat, so that your opponent will then stop doing further damage to you.
Here is the fight from the news years eve MMA event called Dynamite in Japan, it shows one of the fighters displaying his belief in the Bushido spirit and his very high threshold to pain as well...
The victor of the fight, Shinya Aoki, is the best light weight fighter in the world right now, not only did he take home the win and the paycheck that night, he also took his opponent's arm with him... you've been warned...
