WATCH: UFC lightweight explains why MMA stars tap out instead of going out to Joe Rogan

UFC stars are known for their toughness and resilience. They undergo grueling training sessions and endure physical and mental challenges to prepare for their performances. They have to maintain peak physical condition and develop a range of skills, including striking, grappling, and submission techniques.

Inside the octagon, UFC stars face off against highly skilled opponents who are equally determined to win. They endure punches, kicks, elbows, and knees, as well as takedowns and submission attempts. Despite the physical punishment, UFC stars often compete despite injuries and push themselves to the limit in pursuit of victory.

Overall, UFC stars are some of the toughest athletes in the world, as they must combine physical toughness, mental fortitude, and technical skill to succeed in this highly competitive sport.

But many top competitors opt to tap out when a submission is properly applied – and there’s a surprising reason behind that.

A while ago, Bobby Green explained why many of the toughest MMA competitors in the world will tap out:
“I would have f***ing pushed it through. But if you don’t tap in MMA ,you don’t make money. You’re gonna get suspension if you go out and go to sleep. You got a six month suspension. ”

“That’s the way it goes. And people do understand it. Like they always like go to sleep, go away, go to sleep.”
“…tough guy and go out and fight it all the way out. But if you do, you don’t make no more money. And I got bills to pay. People don’t understand that.”
