Jones is the champ, no doubt. Delivers, best LHW of all time. Damn DAYUM he's creepy. At the weigh ins, he's looking to the side like 9/11 is happening 4 blocks away, but he pushes his body right up to Reyes - like he's trying to be passive aggressive, but show him who's daddy at the same time. Part of his personality I guess, part of what makes him great - but also..... creepy. You can sense his temperament in the fight being just the same - and really that's what won him the fight. He didn't "hurt" his opponent more, at all - he just asserted himself, pushed his opponent back, fought through the fatigue like it was 2nd nature. In an mma scored fight - meh. But if that was a street fight with no time limits, no way Jones could not be thought of as the winner. CLEAR winner. He plays a very subtle mental game; not one that he even has to think about cause, it's what he is. It's his character. Same as McGregor - people ramble on about "mental warfare" - it's just his character coming into play. Not premeditated, not thought out or contrived. Funny thing is - rivalry with Cormier - Cormier is an absolute "daddy" also. It's no wonder to me they had the rivalry that they did. One trying to be the more assertive "daddy" than the other - it's just Jones puts a more subtle passive-aggressive spin on it. My honest thoughts are, until someone with a stronger character comes along that can handle the passive-aggressive creepy but domineering factor - no one's gonna beat a fit and prime Jones. Stipe beat Cormier when he slipped and slid underneath - but for all the domineering bullshinanignas, we all know Jones won't fight a heavyweight. Bottom line is, an outstanding champion, but can never be mainstream - cause creepy just ain't sexy.
