    "I've seen what I needed to see," "The Stylebender" told Sporting News on Monday. "In the fifth round, he tried to turn it on, but he couldn't. Compare his fifth round to my fifth round against Kelvin Gastelum; there's a difference.

    [​IMG]
    "He's washed up. He’s done. His best years are behind him. He's still great, but he’s washed up now. He wasn't doing s—. He was winning the rounds, but it wasn't really doing s—. He was trying, but there's levels to this.

    "It was close. There's ways you can look at that fight. Some people scored it Jones, some people scored it Dominick. Dominick thought he won the fight; Jones thought he won the fight. Some say draw; I would have given it a draw. But it’s one of those things. They put it on the line and it was a good fight, but I give it a draw.

    "That (scoring) was ridiculous. Ridiculous.

    "I liked the conversation (commentators) Jon Anik, Joe Rogan and Dominic Cruz had after the fight, where they were appealing to the public, saying, 'Please, can we come together for the greater good of the sport?'

    "That was ridiculous. Whoever scored it like that [should] never judge again. Ever."

    I agree with the statement, judging was terrible. I think the match was fixed. 48-47 Reyes.

    how many times did kelvin miss weight at 170 again?

    stfu retard, he moved up in weight because he couldn't even make it. that's like calling rumble johnson a blown up welterweight

    He moved up in weight because he is too undisciplined to stop fucking eating. That guy is not a natural MW.

    Jones is shitting nails just reading what Adesanya wrote. Adesanya is the baby GOAT. He defeated Silva and will defeat old Jones. Adesanya needs to work on his TKD and pack on pounds and will KO Jones.

    Don't like the poll. Jones looked the same as always, imo, only he was fighting a young athlete the same size as him instead of a 40 y.o. Brazilian or a guy with half his height or reach. Gus did much the same in their first fight, and Cormier was extremely competitive in both their fights despite the massive height and reach disparity.

    israel needs to cool his jets unless he's seriously thinking about making a superfight vs jones this year. I've never seen someone talk so much trash yet refuse to move up in weight to fight someone.

    Jones still beats Israel.
    He’s too small and has no wrestling.
    Hell Reyes would probably fuck up Adesanya.

    boy needs to focus on the Cuban Missile coming his way, that could ruin his “plans” easy.
    He’s already 0-1 in the dance battle.

    If some othet champs had a guy tired they would have finished them. Miocic finished a tired Cormier,Khabib finished a tired Mcgregor,Max finished a tired Aldo twice and broke Ortegas face,Cjeudo finished Marlon.

    Watched your clip.

    Jones wrestling (base skill) saved him the fight. Jackson / Wink's good job of training Jon's strikes... huge pieces & promos by Brandon Gibson, MMA interviews which I panned long ago, now confirmed as sop.

    Jones stalled & struggled when the opponent was a physical match.

    What'ya think?<Kpop01>
