One of the best ever but I hate that he does that. It really does affect his opponents.

He does it in LITERALLY every single fight. Rashad, Rampage, Gustafsson and Teixeira complained about eye pokes to the ref to no avail. Neither Shogun or Machida complained but he did his famous five finger swipe to the face.

How you guys can defend this ridiculous tactic is baffling to me.
You can LOL all you want. No one is defending eye pokes, shit for brains. We're talking about the exaggerations by people like you who think any hand on the face or head (which isn't illegal) is a poke in the eyes. When they make on the head illegal then you can rant about it.

I do not want some system where it is up to the ref to watch some of Jones old fights and decide by himself that Jones is a serial eye poker and then tell him before the match, first eye poke = point deduction.

If this was applied in the method I am suggesting on the Gus Jones rematch both would be on equal standing as they each poked someone in their last fight.

This is fair and consistant.
Ignore him, he doesn't think it's an issue and would rather people be allowed free fouls every fight, you were right in your last post, he just wants to criticize, he doesn't want to solve the problem as he doesn't think it is a problem.

Its hilarious how at first, everyone actually thought jones was a legit virtuoso.

Only the few recognized his pawing of the eyes.

Theb he fought gus, couldn't eye poke threat as much due to size. Got his ass kicked, and still won lmfao.

Then he fought glover, and now its a pretty well known fact.

JONES tactic is indeed, deter by fingers in eyes, and strike when you blink or move to avoid.

Goat? Pfff.

Beat gus n then well talk.
