Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIJanuary 10, 2017

Mike Pantangco was completely dominating his opponent during an amateur MMA fight, but instead of finishing him off, he tapped out to save him from taking any more physical punishment. 

After the fight, Pantangco made it known that he didn't want to send his opponent to the hospital, especially since neither fighter was getting paid.

In doing so, Pantango lost the fight, but won the respect of sports fans everywhere.
