Because the martial arts are mixed, there are hundreds of unique ways for an MMA fight to end. Submissions alone are endlessly varied, from blood chokes to joint attacks to face wrenching moves that will make someone tap just from the pain caused by the maneuver. Remember when Demian Maia made Rick Story’s nose shoot blood from a crank?
It’s rare, however, when a fight ends via running away. But, that’s what happened at UCMMA 51, when a fighter took a stiff punch to the face then decided that it was in his best interests to employ the Kalib Starnes running away defense until it ended the fight.
