    Jones vs. Crash Bandicoot is a good example of how rigged the judging/system in general is.

    e.g Jones brings asses to the seat, is a money generator for the UFC, therefore he will be protected as a champion and will probably win some more controversial decisions in the future.

    How can we fully enjoy these title fights, if the challengers get screwed like this?

    Ugh, This was 48-47 either dude coulda won. Try watchin some other fights that are 1000X more of a screw job and get back to me.

    Hence, DON'T LEAVE IT TO THE FUCKING JUDGES.

    OMG It was a great fight. Enjoy the fight and stop worrying about a close score.. It easily could have been a draw..

    No finish = draw
    Title is vacated.

    Fuck judges and WME corruption.

    Besides the bs decision, Jones is not that entertaining anymore. Boring point fighter with no power.

    Stop making shitty threads because of a close decision that didn't go "your" way. The judges are shit, we get it, therefore do everything in your power to eliminate them from the equation, which sadly, Dom didn't do. Argue 3-2 for either guy, but a screw job? There have been WAAAAAAY worse than this. This doesn't even make the top 100 worst decisions.

    "Don't leave it to the judges" is not part of the rules. The UFC and athletic commission have a responsibility to bring in competent judges.

    Nah, I go to a discussion board to engage in the exchange of ideas. Not quote a valid argument and respond with 1 word like a child.

    But hey, to each their own.

    No it's not in the rules, but it's a rule I would try to abide by in any sport. You never know what the judges saw, so remove them from even having a choice in the matter. I think that's solid fighter advice, or good advice in ANY sport. Don't let anything or anyone manipulate the outcome if you can help it.

    No I don’t think we can. Btw shout out to Crash Bandicoot, I’m not sure what his relevance to this thread is but Warped was the shit.

    It was a close fight that could have gone either way. You can be really pissed at the dumbass who scored it
    49-46 Jones but not at Bones winning.

    Tell that to Reyes face. His shit was red as hell and he was especially struggling the last two rounds, while Jones was getting stronger. Looks like that non-power of Jones was doing work.

    nice try
