I truly believe if Jon Jones didn’t poke Glover like 5 times in the eyes, chances are Glover...

    Could’ve won by sub or decision, but it’s very hard to tell after your vision is compromised and here is the fight for free to watch! Once Jon couldn’t get his way with Glover he used his best weapon his open fingers and the ref let him put his fingers open most of the fight in front of Glover’s face and eyes! WTF?

    What i disliked also in that fight was the shoulder lock. Jones literally popped glover shoulder with no chance for him to tap. That's really flirting with the limits of what's legal in a mma fight

    Yeah when you're looking for it, it's pretty bad

    Even when he isn't actively poking him, Glover knows if he comes in he'll get poked

    What’s borderline about a shoulder lock?

    Yes i understand but armlocks, leglocks, chokes etc. should be applied with a chance to tap. Popping the shoulder is the same as fingers manipulation to me, it won't stop a fighter from fighting but it will greatly impair him, and finger/wrist locks aren't legal, probably for that reason.

    It's allowed anyway so jones can do it of course, i just find it a bit dirty that's all. just my opinion anyway

    If you apply things like this, you'll never submit anyone

    Guys in BJJ matches let their arms break, in UFC title fights people won't tap

    Actually, whenever I think about this fight, I remember this and think that it's one of the best move I've seen in MMA. Watching this I was like "man, Jones is really a genius".

    What if it rained gold? What if I had superpowers? What if the GSP was abducted?

    Glover was more of a stand up fighter back then. It's strange to say but the older Glover would have a better chance. His new style of just getting it to the ground and looking for a sub is super effective. He has heavy ground and pound, top game and numerous subs. He's just too slow on the feet at this stage and seems to know that.
