I have never seen so much gymnastic to try to give the fighter to the loser

    So basically, the fact Reyes landed more for 3 rounds doesn't matter for these people. Instead, lets made up arbitrary BS criteria to give Jon the rounds anyway. Lets see:

    "Octagon control"

    "He landed a higher percentage"

    "He was moving forward. We all know the definition of fighting is moving forward."

    "Well, the difference in strikes wasn't that big, so the percentage of strikes landed becomes more important than the total strikes"

    "Yeah, he lost the rounds, but it was close, so it wasn't a robbery. It's ok to deprive someone of a victory if it's not a one sided beating"

    "Well...for championship fights you only win rounds if you destroy the champion."

    I have a few or my own even more convincing. You can use it if you want to:

    "Jon turned his back and ran, which showed he was winning because if you weren't better than your opponent you wouldn't turn your back to him. That shows you aren't concerned about your opponent because you're winning easily"

    "I think Jon won the rounds because by not landing much he was pretty much showing everybody he wasn't taking his opponent seriously, since those strikes were having no effect. It's a form of control. It's fighting arrogance. It's part of the judging criteria. I mean, when Batman was punching Bane, do you also feel he was winning the fight? Bane was just there chilling letting him punch"

    Bones won. Round 3 was a coin flip. Try not to lose too much sleep over it

    It's quite sad really, if the whole fanbase accept that a decision is complete shit and kick up a fuss about it then there's a chance something changes, but when you have people thinking walking forward is good enough to win then it's hopeless

    Reyes won that fight

    But if you go by the whole to be the champ, you need to beat the champ BS it should have atleast been a tie.

    If it was a coin flip but you're still confident he won, that means you gave him rounds 4, 5, 2 and maybe 3??

    That is exactly the scenario where the rule you're invoking comes into effect: when a title fight is tied, the champion keeps the belt.

    Uh no. I gave him 3,4,5 but if he lost the fight I wouldn't be bitching because round 3 was a coin flip. Comprende?

    How long have you been watching the sport?

    Bendo's UFC LW reign had as many controversial fights as Jones has is whole career. He also had a big fanbase.

    To this day, there are people argue the 2nd fight with Edgar wasn't a robbery and that fight was less close than Jones/Reyes.

    Can't wait for Schaub and Rogan's mental gymnastics this week as they try to come up with a Jones win.

    Do jusges have the fight stats in front of them at the end of every round? They are indeed human, and if not I doubt they would be aware one fighter landed 4 more punches that round than their opponent.

    then it would've been a draw, not a win for Jones.

    Jones is my favourite.... I thought he won Gus and Santos decisions ..... but I can’t see how he won any of the first 3 rounds

    Stop acting like you have to think Reyes won. It’s not number of sig strikes, it’s effective strikes. And Jon landed way more effective strikes in 4 and 5. 2 was close so it’s not a robbery if you give it to Jones.

    Thing is: New MMA rules stated that harmless takedowns alone and to a minor extent alongside pointless control should score nil, yet I still did not get to see judges adopting that, stupid blanket fighters like Colby and now Jones are still winning for something it clearly stated as not counted for.

    Take away harmless TDDs and what do you have for Jones before the 4th? (Some might argue before 5th, doesn't matter as 3 rounds are more than enough)

    You guys created it to protect american boringstyle wrestlers, glad you did, otherwise Jones would be past.
