    Apparently they made a new rule were you cant just poke guys in the eye. You cant even have your hand out with your fingers extended. Jon jones literally fights like that 90% of the time , could this be a serious issue for him?

    Well, he's probably out for 2 years. And yes, it will be a problem for him.

    That's the one thing I always hated seeing from him. I was hoping someone would punch his fingers and break them so he wouldn't do it anymore.

    jones has been cheating long enough with those eye pokes, being a clean fighter is probably the toughest thing jones will ever be.

    Big John is an issue for him.
    USADA is an issue for him.
    Drugs are an issue for him.
    Safe driving is an issue for him.

    Jones is done.

    Man, Jon Jones is getting hit from all sides. First they get him for super drugs. Now they take away one of his key moves. Thats like saying we cant use the x button on our XBOX One controller in mortal kombat X

    you can't have your arm out straight with fingers pointed at your opponent

    you can hold it slightly higher than their head though which is how you're supposed to use that technique anyway

    Brock used it to palm Hunts forehead and avoid getting punched during their fight

    The ABC adopted some changes/revisions to the unified rules. 42 athletic commissions voted in favor of them.

    How is that nobody did a flying armbar or something like grab his hand and upercut his upper arm....
    In one of those Bas Rutten self defense videos, I saw him twisting other dude's arm and trying to break it with his knee....

    If someone try to do something like this to JJ, I will die happy.

    New rule definitely makes it even harder for Gus to win a fight now

    Or maybe someone could throw a Crocop kick and break his tiny legs.
