    Did you think Jones was gonna tap? How would´ve events unfolded in the division if he had tapped?





    And Joe Rogan:
    "And one thing we´ve never seen of Vitor is submissions off his back. He can defend himself from his back, I´m sure he has submissions OOOHHH ARMBAR!! HE´S GOT IT!!!!"

    His vitamin T would have been taken away and history would be repeated.

    His strategy wouldn't have been the same for a 3 rounder, but I think he very well could've lost to Gus in the 5 rounder anyway.

    Didn't consider that possibility haha

    This is literally the one fight I'd choose in history for the outcome to have changed. I'm sure he'd be back at the top sometime but I think a lot would have changed. I bet he would have lost another time after, particularly the gus fight if it was not 5 rounds and gus could just unload on him

    Jones would have got an immediate re-match and demolished him
    Those leaked drug test results that showed UFC knew Vitor had exceeded his TRT allowance before the fight would have caused a hell of a nightmare for the sport
    Every time we wanted to shit on people claiming Jones is GOAT we could say twp PED failiures and lost to a MW.

    He'd still be the goat. But haters would say, "imagine fedor grabbing an arm, blah, blah" luckily the goat will never be submitted or tkod. And im out of this thread on that note

    I mean "the goat" basically did get submitted. Vitor had it, there's a point where jones elbow hyperextended and vitor tbought it was broken and let up alittle. That combines with him spiking vitor on his head led to him escaping. Btw not just saying this. Multiple people have talked about this including rogan who is the biggest jones apologist out there.

    Ummm no that’s not “basically” submitted. Getting subbed has three outcomes: unconscious, broken something or tap. If it isn’t one of these three it isn’t “basically” submitted.

    It's fun to think about: Vitor had Vitamin T for this fight and Jon had dick pills, and in a way, this was a fair fight because of that.

    Yeah, but we’re not talking about Vitor almost fighting Fedor on short notice at Affiction:Trilogy. We’re talking about his fight with Jon Jones.

    Only thing would change is sherdoggers would have fight related ammo against Jones.

    Lol the only reason he escaped is cause vitor eased up. Also if you really want to get technical, there's a rule of verbal submission where if a fighter gives any verbal indication of pain like yelling or grunting, the ref is supposed to stop the fight to avoid further injury. Jones did that but fight wasn't stopped.

    That was TRT fucken Vitor, he probably would’ve defended until Jones earned his way back. Vitor might of been complete by the time the rematch took place, as he was close to being in his final form when he sent Henderson to the moon. Also the rematch wouldn’t be on short notice.

    So in short, Vitor would of most likely ruled the division until TRT got banned.
