Did Sage Quit?

Or maybe he just did not know how to escape?

Maybe he does not realize the leverage he gets via his legs from bottom half?

Barberena insists that he gets the tap from this position in class.

In my honest opinion I just don't think the choke was set all the way.

But I know what position I am starting in the next time I hit the mats :)

Didn't look like a full tap

Didn't look like a full tap to me... He seemed to contest it afterward it as well...
I think he just made the wrong motion and it was interpreted as a tap.

that tap looked legit

He has alot to work on. Even Chael didn't want to admit he tapped after he tapped. And you know how much integrity Chael has...

I agree he needs work...

I agree he needs work...
Probably very shielded up to now.
Should cut the umbilical chord and move to another gym.

But, usually if someone is close to being choked out, they tap pretty vehemently...
He kind of just patted dude...
Although maybe he is just that weak to fight through like many are saying?
