Mike Pantangco was absolutely dominating an amateur MMA fight when he suddenly tapped out. The move left many people scratching their heads — but it was later revealed that the move was an incredible act of sportsmanship.

“We’re amateur fighters,” Pantangco said. “We don’t get money. … and I know that the only thing I’m going to finish the fight is him to go in the hospital or get hurt. I just feel terrible so I’m just going to give him the win.”
