    in their judgement of fights similar to Jones vs Reyes, Jones vs Santos, Cormier vs Gustafsson and etc. The fighter who looks like it is chasing the other often gets the judges decision.

    I have noticed and I have stated that "MMA is a sport where you can win by moving forward, pinning your opponent against the cage, or lying on top of your opponent."

    So, for some fans to act like the judgement for Jones vs Reyes is somehow out of the ordinary is ridiculous. I am willing to bet that if we go back and reexamine close fights, we will find that the fighter who was chasing the fight was given the decision more often than the one who was backpedaling and fighting in short bursts of flurries.

    I could be wrong.
