I don't like that he's so tall and that his arms are so long. It changes the way his opponents fight

I see eye pokes all the time. Didn't Gus eye poke Manuwa in his last fight?

And you have no proof he does it on purpose.
Did he beat Stephan Bonnar on eyepokes? How about Obrien? Shogun? Rampage?Rashad? Gus? Glover? Machida? And how many of these guys have eye poked people? I've watch almost all these fights, he dominated these guys (except for Gus).

No, and I don't think you have a very good grasp on Jon's career. Watch all his fights; hes dominant. You need to make a better attempt at formulating opinions before you spout off about things you know little of.

The eye pokes definitely set him back in the overall P4P rankings IMO
