    It's blatantly obvious that he didn't tap. The ref just didn't see anything, and he called a tapout when Yoshida was yelling that he tapped.

    seeing how it resulted in a draw, what was the story there? was it reviewed and judged a draw after seeing that royce didn't actually tap?
     
  6. That's the result of their 2nd match. The rules were if you get a submission you win, if it goes the distance it's a draw for fear of a biased ruling. Royce took off his top gi for the first time. Initially it was a good fight with Yoshida overpowering Royce. He had some opportunities for subs but just didn't know what to do. When he tired, Royce basically beat on Yoshida from back control until the match was over.
