You said no ones else does those kicks and I purposely gave you two popular names in MMA that people love, who do them. Not only disproving your "Why doesn't anyone else use knee kicks" but pointing out the hypocrisy of most MMA fans, its so bad that it goes unnoticed in your little mind when they fight.

Again with this bias that you think I have. I have given you my reasoning for not giving the 4th to Jones yet you brush it off as well everyone else gave it to him. Judging is completely objective and I've given you reasoning completely free of bias.

If I changed up my gear every time a team won a super bowl you might be on to something. You and most Jones fans are only interested in the next best thing and most of these posts cement my opinion. And for the record...he is the baddest qb on the planet, no swinging necessary.

Caught the fight on Netflix a few days back. Good fight, but I really don't see the controversy. It was a very close fight, but Jones was in control for 80% of it, regardless of some good strikes landed by Gus.

How about Round 1 for Gustafsson. Round 2 was not clear for Jones at all it was close but I felt Gus edged it out landed more punches to the head and a clear trip in the beginning. Why do you assume I hate Jones?
He really wasn't at all. Jones controlled the pace of most of the fight. Constantly moving forward, and landing strikes, and attempting multiple takedowns. He ate some good shots, and Gus did get him down once, but that's about it. Like it or not(I personally don't), but "Octagon Control" is still a judging criteria, and Jones was controlling where the fight went for most it.
