You ungrateful prick. We'd be seeing crab-walking Jones every fight if it wasn't for BJM.

I survived TPF 10 - "Let the streams fail".

Jones just holds out his's his opponents who run eye-first into his fingers for some absurd reason.

special rules apply to special (promoted) fighters so no one except Cormier can stop it.

I just hope he can stop it.
Too bad Jon Jones didn't switch to the "legal 12-6 elbows" perk for that one fight or he would still be undefeated.

As a matter of (fact), there's no rule that says a fight cannot have an open hand that’s extended towards their opponent. Now I’m not telling you (that) I like it. I don't like it and I think it needs to be changed"

“There’s nothing that we can do with the open hand. I can’t tell someone like Jon 'hey close your hand' when it comes out, and I'm gonna tell him, what I’m doing is, I‘m setting up the possibility of me taking a point off of his score card if that eye poke occurs. You know, because that’s when we do something. When the fingers goes in the eye there is a rule, no eye gouging. We can do something about that foul at that time. Now, most of the time it's done in a defence action, meaning Jon is backing up, he's got his hand extended, and (due to) the offensive actions of his opponent coming forward his finger goes in their eye.”

“Until they chance the rules and say 'you are not allowed to extend your hand in an open fashion, in any offensive situation', now if they put that rule in and Jon does it, we as a referee can say 'Jon close your hand now, and I’m warning you if you don't, if you put it out in the same fashion I'm gonna start taking points”

lol. Big John is not going to save your tears.

Why must he? He'll Jones once or twice, but never follow up on it.

Its almost like all the refs are told not to take a point away from him.
