    ...en masse concede that this is indeed a serious problem with Jones' conduct and strategy in terms of sportsmanship and integrity, or will they mostly yet again hide behind the usual "it's the ref's job, it's not intentional, it's up to his opponent to stop it, everyone does it" silliness?

    I think Jones is an AMAZING fighter, but I don't really understand why so many people just pretend that (a) he isn't going out and trying to steal an unfair advantage in most fights, and (b) that it doesn't matter? It distorts fights, and Jones doesn't even need any extra advantages as it is, dude is incredible in the cage.

    Thoughts?

    He leaves his hand open. It's his opponent's decision if he wants to lunge in like a moron and get poked. He doesn't do the poking, they run into his hands (most of the times).

    they cannot take a point on the first offense that's not how it works. Honestly there's nothing that can be done about it, he's found a loophole in the rules, one that Chuck used to abuse as well.

    I will assume you're kidding, as nobody could really think this.

    No, they won't. If they're fine with open-fingers-defence after so many fights, 1 more fight will change nothing.

    Sorry but they're all running into his hand. Don't lunge in when he has his hand open you don't get poked.
