The second it becomes crystal clear a fighter isn't in with a chance and is simply a punching bag, every punch they allow themselves to take afterwards is a punch too many.
Quieting once in your whole career especially at the end of his career doesn't make him a quitter, It just means DLH must have had it in his mind he was about to get seriously hurt or worse, He did the right thing.
