    Biggest robbery in UFC history.

    Judges should be Investigated. 49-46 for Jones is criminal.


    EDIT: Added ScoreCard for reference

    I need to see it again I can't call it a robbery but a close fight and I had it 3-2 for Reyes.

    Optics do mater and seeing those championship rounds and all that octagon control does matter so I get why some scored it for Jones.

    At the end of the day Jones looked human and we can't just put it on a off night like I personally said for the Santos fight.

    What's there to investigate?
    The 49-46 guy was clearly incompetent so why investigate him when it's clear already.

    I don't think it was a close fight at all.
    3 rounds in, and it was heavily 1-sided.

    Jones bounced back in the 4th, and did nothing in the 5th really. More meaningless Takedowns than Latifi as well, since Latifi actually gained control. Jones didn't even control Reyes for 5 seconds on the ground.

    That's a actually a very important point that I thought of as well ...as Jones first tried to initiate the double leg in round 3 I believe.

    The point that: Latifi lost a decision despite winning the wrestling / takedowns of the match earlier. I only watched half the fight, half paying attention but it seemed like it was a "robbery" according to Cruz and the crowd. I thought he won too vs Lewis from what I saw.

    But then Jones won...based on wrestling and takedowns (at least partially and by Jones' own opinion)? Where's the consistency in the judging there. And Jones' takedowns did nothing, I don't think he ever secured "back control" or any control on the ground whatsoever, it led to extremely minimal control and literally zero damage.

    But we already know the judges were incompetent. State commissions having judges is so retarded, it should be ex-fighters...or people involved in coaching/training/fighting. Everyone knows this but it's all political bullshit.

    Exactly.

    I made another thread about that, and Lewis fans said LNP doesn't score. And Latifir actually had control to go with the Takedowns... Jones had meaningless Takedowns, and now those same people are saying it won Jones the fight, which is BS imo

    Reyes should have known not to let the fight in the hands of the judges.

    Jones arguably lost his last 2 fights at LHW.

    Certainly looks VERY beatable now that the effects of the dick pills have worn off

    Inexperienced judges get nervous scoring a title fight and will err on giving it to the champ as they don't want to risk getting blasted for costing a guy his belt.

    Yoel and Reyes are the people's champ.
