Watch MMA fighter forfeit bout he was winning rather than injure rival

Watch MMA fighter forfeit bout rather than injure opponent

In one of the strangest scenes in MMA history, Mike Pantangco lost to Jeremy Raser in a fight over the weekend because he was beating his opponent too badly and felt sorry for him.

Pantangco was dominating Raser during their Prison City Fight League bout, landing several unanswered blows when he suddenly stopped, kneeled down and tapped out, causing the referee to stop the fight and award the victory to Rasner.

"I just feel that there's no point in fighting him because he didn't train against me and I didn't train for him and I just feel like we're amateur fighters. We don't get money. We don't get paid," Pantangco said. "And I know that the only thing that'd happen is him to go to the hospital or get hurt. I just feel terrible so I'm just going to give him the win."

You can watch the bizarre scene in the video above.
