    How would everyone feel if Reyes had lost a point due to not engaging Jon in the 5th round?

    Refs can do that but that would have been an insane thing to do.

    There has to be some advance warnings and if it continues then a point can be deducted. I've seen fights where it should've happened and didn't.

    I remember in the Anderson/Maia fight Dan Miragliotta warned and pushed Anderson to get him towards Maia to stop goofing off.

    Yes. Maia the king of point deduction of refusing to get up and fight.

    Reyes landed 21 significant strikes in the 5th round.

    Defense is never a problem. Lack of offense is.

    Yeah. If it was Reyes would've had a million yellow cards.

    Yeah well that'd be fine cos Jones would have lost about 15 points for literally running away in the first 3 rounds aye

    Sure. Also deduct a point from Jon for every time he ran from Reyes
