Crelinsten trains at Montreal’s Tristar gym where MMA heroes Georges St-Pierre and Ryan MacDonald work.

Most MMA fans who watched the footage online were quick to sympathise with Crelinsten as he was caught up in the incident.

adamjmachin said: “It was up to his opponent to tap , he had pleeeeenty of time, his exit was blocked by Ethan’s leg he had not possible way out, flexibility is not a defense.

“What was he supposed to do , let go of a submission because an opponent would not tap? Not at this level of competition.

“This is the top level of grappling, there is no room for second guessing your opponent.

“Simple, you apply the submission until your opponent taps and then you release instantly. Anyone who competes understands this.”

British UFC star Arnold Allen appeared to be unhappy with his Tristar team-mate sharing the video online, from his Instagram account, Arnoldbfa, he wrote: “What’s wrong with you?”

And Lottmasta said: “Shame on your opponent for making you do that to him.”
