Video: MMA Fighter Forfeits Fight To Save Opponent From Unnecessary Harm

Well, here’s something you don’t see everyday. Amateur fighter Mike Pantangco, was throwing a beating to Jeremy Rasner, when all of a sudden Pantangco taps the ground and forfeits. 

His opponent had a bewildered look on his face, and didn’t seem to understand what was going on. To sum up what Pantangco said to Inside MMA in an interview, he felt bad for inflicting so much damage to his opponent. He didn’t feel an amateur should take that much damage.

I guess you can call that sportsmanship. What are your thoughts?

Check out the highlights from the event and full interview.

Side bar, why would you name your promotion “Prison City Fight League”?

UPDATE From MMMAJunkie

So this just raised this guy’s asshole level another notch. Pantangco quit the match because he felt he was dominating the fight, but in actuality, the guy was still able to defend himself. He only got caught with only ONE good shot. This guy should not be fighting.
