VIDEO | Sonnen Blames Rule Confusion As Reason For First Silva Loss | UFC NEWS
“What had happened was a complete misunderstanding, a complete misapplication of the rules by me. We’re in the fifth and final round, he locks on a submission and I acknowledge he has it tight by slapping my hand on his leg. I tapped. So what I thought is you go to the cards. I win four rounds, he wins that round. Apparently, if you tap, it ends the entire contest, which I was not ever made privy to. I gotta plead ignorance on this, Jim. Had anybody told me that tapping would cost me the entire bout, and not just the round, I wouldn’t have done it.”
