dear lord.

Thing is, the UFC cant fill a 145lb division of women of a decent standard. PFL's 155lb division must be brutal.

Interesting lil sidenote about Werdum's opponent. He once played Fabricio Werdum in a movie, bit weird...

Werdum got had over last night. The guy tapped, Werdum relaxed, the ref didn’t see the tap, then the guy proceeded to knock Werdum out.

I mean, I know you’re supposed to continue until the ref stops it but with something like this, you’re naturally going to relax the pressure on the sub when you feel the tap and the referee’s positioning was shite which didn’t help. He was on the other side but he still should’ve been on top of that. Even in the gif there, he still should’ve been able to see the tap really. Sucks for Werdum this. Again, part of its on him but it’s a crappy way to lose.

It's also potentially damaging, in that it may lead to an uptick in fighters getting paranoid about this sort of thing, and doing a Refusimar. Could end up with a lot of bad will at best, and injuries at worst.

LOL, commonly called "the brazilian tap", you see it all the time in BJJ tournaments, a single tap or very light sequence of taps. Sorry but that is on Werdum, its a triangle, hold on to it until the ref steps in. Triangle is very different in terms of "holding on too long" compared to something like a heel hook.
