Don't mind Cruz and Rogan... but when they are together calling fights in real time they can be terrible. 

I dont know what fight Theyre watching. Keep oumping uo Jones when Reyes is up by 2 rounds

That was 25 minutes of them saying 4 different things about 100 times each. So repetitive.

Over/under on how long before Jones failing a drug test gets announced?

 

 

Before we wake up, or before we go to bed?

I am a Jones fan too - but again no way does he win this fight.

What a joke, Reyes owned this fight easy 3-2 rounds, was ridiculous listening to Joe and Dom justify the bad decision before it even happened. Most annoying part of mma is crazy judging decisions

Earlier a judge spent almost the whole round playing with his phone didn't even watch the fight. 

 

The fighter from Houston won acording to judges even the Houston crowd booed the decision. Lol

 

Then Latifi got robbed. Clearly won. They gave it to Lewis who is also from Huston. Latifi gad 2 takedowns was on top and worked Lewis in 2 rounds. Lewis did absolutely nothing entire fight except threw punches last 25 seconds. 

 

Then Reyes should have won 3 rounds to 2. He win first 3 rounds. The takedowns Jones had were meaningless. Reyes bounced back uo within a second. Never on his back or controled on the ground. 

 

Horrible judging.

Starting to get hard to watch the sport I love. Tonight was an embarrassing night for the sport of MMA with multiple horrendous decisions.

I only watched the Jones Reyes fight but I guess I am in the minority thinking that Jones deserved the decision victory..

 

Reyes fought well don't get me wrong but he didn't do enough to dethrone a champ via decision. I had the rounds Reyes - Jones - Reyes - Jones - Jones. I will agree that the 49-46 score is ridiculous but the outcome aligns with what I saw. Reyes was 'busier' early on but Jones did a good job defending and always kept the center of the octagon. Rounds 2 and 4 were close but I think Jones squeaked them out.

Not a chance. Reyes clearly won the first 3 rounds. It was a 3-2 UD win for Reyes. Even DANA had it 3-2 Reyes. The whole ridiculous theory of "need to do more to take the belt from the champ" isn't an MMA rule. Advancing and ring control also play an very very minor rule in score cards as per MMA rules. 

 

He did enough, the stats showed. The president of the entire company even thinks so. Not to mention both Rogan and Cruz who were calling the fight having it 3-2 Reyes as well.

Jones also had 2 take downs and only landed 12 less strikes (http://ufcstats.com/event-details/b26d3e3746fb4024). Ring control may play a minor role but with only an average of 2 more strikes per round to reyes that could have been the difference. Take downs also play major role in scoring, Reyes had 0 Jones had 2.

 

You can't trust what Dana says at face value.. Dana is calculated in everything he says - controversy promotes the rematch.

 

It was close but imo Jones won a narrow victory.

I think if you factor in who pressed forward more and who was running away more Reyes has to be awarded the first 3 rounds. Jones was on the defensive those first 3 rounds.

Yea, I'm still feeling meh about the UFC these days. Reyes won that fight but man one thing that people don't talk enough about with Jones is his ability to absorb. He can take a punch better than most on the roster. 

 

I think Diego is going to get murdered tonight. Pereira is going to make up for his last outing and put in on the poor old UFC spaz.

 

YES! YES! YES!
