When an actual eye poke happens, you can clearly tell by the fighters reaction (no, looking at the ref and shaking your head isn't it; wincing in pain, staggering backward and being rendered virtually helpless is), and it's rare that a judge misses it. They refs usually give the pokee the benefit of the doubt. The same as with nut shots.
Don't bother wasting your time on haters of any fighter. Once they get it in their head that you're a nuthugger and Jon is a cheater, you're done. You can't persuade their thoughts with empirical and logical evidence, you can't give them reasoning. There's nothing you can do. There are many examples of fighters palming faces.

While White was clearly impressed with Jones' overall performance against Teixeira, he did comment on the constant eye pokes that have become an issue due to Jones' Thai block defence, where he covers his opponent's face with his hand.

"We've got to stop that stuff. The openings of the hands [gloves] and putting the hands on the face are something bad but it happens with guys who have reach. They do that a lot." - See more at:
