    "Here is the problem. Texas does not use that criteria(new unified rules). They use the old one, in which assessing who is leading and who is following in a fight is a much more forward consideration. As a consequence, do i think under the Texas rules that it is possible to look at that fight and score 3 rounds for Jones? Sure. So you look at the title of this video and it is “was dominic reyes robbed?”. No, he was not robbed. There is not a case to be made, even under modern unified rules. It is specially not true under the rules that Texas is using."

    I thought Jon lost but it was close enough where I wasn't upset with Jon getting the nod.

    It was a clear 3 rounds to 2 for Reyes for anyone who actually has eyes.
