    UFC fans are the worst. That was an incredibly close fight, and people are calling it a Robbery!?!!

    Make it make sense. I had Reyes clearly winning The first two rounds. I had Jones clearly winning rounds 4 and 5. Round 3 could have gone either way, but I edged it to Jones for Octogon control. So I score the fight 3-2 for Jones.

    The scoring was still bad though. Any judge who gave 4 rounds to Jones needs to be fired and never judge again. But I thought this was a good, close win for Jones. His dominance in the championship rounds and takedowns (however brief they were) really sealed it for me. In most combat sports, to be the champ, you got to beat the champ decisively, not hope for the best in a close fight that could have gone either way.

    Great performance from both fighters and I want to see a rematch at some point.

    I agree you have to beat the champ but imo reyes won the first three rounds fairly clearly. the stats will show this.

    We all know Reyes had more significant strikes in round 1-3, but Jones had Octogon control in most of the rounds. And Reyes really gassed and took his foot off the pedal in the championship rounds. You can't do that and leave it to the judges.

    It wasn’t really that close. One guy won 3 rounds, and the other won 2. It’s just too bad the judges messed up .

    Reyes should have stood his ground. Jon Jones chased the fight, and that is what the judges saw. One guy chasing another guy. LOL

    Yeah...you are blind.

    Anyone who gives rounds 4 and 5 to Reyes shouldn't be talking about scoring UFC fights or even sharing their opinion. Clear Jones rounds...Reyes was gassed and mainly trying to survive to the end. Jones superior gas tank won him the last two rounds comfortably

    Either you a casual, or a Reyes friend or family member to come with that scoreline.

    This. Reyes lacked heart in the final round. He should have fought harder.

    Finally an OP that makes sense tonight.

    Reyes fought hard and might be a champion some day. Jones showed why he has been champion longer than any other UFC fighter. Great fight.

    I already said Reyes won Rounds 1 and 2. Round 3 could go either way, but I edged it to Jones. Hence 3-2 for Jones on my card.

    That's why this was a close fight. Could have gone either way.

    Octagon control < Effective striking

    People really don't know the judging criteria, do they? I mean it literally lists them at the start of the broadcast.

    Did I watch a different round 3? I don’t see how anyone could have that round for Jon.
