Jesus Didn't Tap!

So I'm watching the UFC pay-per-view last night, and one of the fighters comes out wearing a shirt with this logo:

In case you don't know what it is to 'tap,' here's a definition (from Urban Dictionary):

'tapout' (verb) -- 1. To tap the floor or an opponent in an act of submission. As in Jiu Jitsu, the losing party, as opposed to being seriously injured or rendered unconscious will tap to admit defeat.

Here's what their MySpace says:

"Jesus didn't quit after going though the worse beating and pain that anyone could go through when he was crucified on the cross. His face was unrecognizable and almost every bone in his body was broken, but he still didn't tap so that we could live a joyful life. WHAT IF JESUS TAPPED? Jesus went through so much for us and didn't tap. He was beaten so bad that you could not even recognize him from head to toe, yet he still didn't tap. Not only did he not tap but he came back and defeated Satan by crushing his head to win after the beating he went through. If he would have tapped we would be in hell. We would be in pain mentally and physically 24/7, but Jesus didn't tap for us, so we don't have to live a life of hell."

Okay, so riddle me this: How could Jesus tap when his hands were nailed to a cross? Shouldn't they call it 'Jesus Couldn't Tap'? And he 'defeated Satan by crushing his head?' So, did Satan tap?

These are the kinds of things that keep me up at night.
