Let me set this up in the only way possible: in the voice of Robert Stack from Unsolved Mysteries. December 2nd, Tachi Palace Fights 7 ‘Deck the Halls’. Tim McKenzie enters the cage…ah, forget it. It’s impossible without that creepy music emanating in the background. Robert Stack without theme music is scientifically impossible. That’s like Bob Sapp without small Japanese women surrounding him like he’s a village elder in Avatar.
In short, Seth Baczynski is caught in a submission from Tim McKenzie, it appears that he taps, Tim lets go of the submission and Seth pummels him which led to a TKO victory. Tim is now appealing this decision to the California State Athletic Commission, with his hearing scheduled to go down sometime in early 2011. I’ve seen a variety of ‘almost taps’ (Bibiano Fernandes vs Joe Warren, anyone?) and I’m still undecided on this one. [Source]
