    -Controversial decision win over Gustaffson
    Coaches and John McCarthy had to actually beg the doctors not to stop that fight after the 4th round
    -Severely broken toe against Chael Sonnen
    fight would have been stopped after the first round
    -The armbar with Vitor Belfort
    Speaks for itself
    -Being able to dodge a Gustaffson rematch for literally over 3 years at this point
    the earliest the two could possibly fight again will have been 3+ years

    Sure, the dude is a good fighter, but there's also a lot more luck involved with his win streaks than any other "GOAT" in the past or present.

    This is getting ridiculous


    I hope jones destroys Cormier to see the haters and their reactions.

    Unreasonable hate for Jones

    Actually, that's debateable. It depends on the doctors.

    Remember Uriah Hall's BAD toe break in the 1st round? That went to a decision.

    TS, I've done the math and exactly 0% luck was involved.

    The question is, how in the world did your Mom and Dad marry and have kids when they are brother and sister? I ask cause your level of stupidity defies any other explanation.

    Him gutting out a arm bar is lucky? That's just called being a winner. He finished Chael isn't lucky at all he did his job.

    Gus pulled out the fight that ain't his fault either. The fuck man, just making shit up.

    And are you not aware of Benson Henderson's LW title reign? Both fights with Edgar were close, as well as Milendez's. I personally thought Edgar won the 2nd fight and Milendez definatley won that one.

    1. Nothing really controversial besides some haters.
    2. Like the guy above said, fight could've kept going. But he got a legit TKO.
    3. He got caught in a sub and escaped it like he trains.
    4. Where do you get 3 years? If Jones wins and Gus wins, the rematch is next.

    This. Jones didnt quit during the gus fight when they wanted to stop it. He let vitor try to break his arm, and yet people think he would quit or the doctor would stop it when nobody noticed til rogan mentioned it

    You personally thought...how predictably redundant. No wonder your opinion on fights is meaningless.

    Just enough to be one of the greatest ever apparently. Fuck he should have been knocked out " fluke" style at this point, mother fucker Jones just keeps winning.

    It's irrelevant. Only the results and accomplishments matter, not a white belt's perception of 'luck.'
