    Some of the excuses seen online so far...

    1. Eye Poke(s)
    2. Wrist grabbing
    3. Grabbed top of the fence
    4. Height/Reach strikes again
    5. Cormier was too old
    6. Herb Dean shouldn't have let Jones clinch with DC for so long
    7. Joe Rogan's commentary altered the Judge's decision
    8. Fight was fixed
    9. Judges robbed DC
    10.


    Anything else?

    The only that mattered....Cormier gassed. That is all.

    Wrist grabbing isn't an excuse. Jones used it to counter DC's uppercuts in the clinch, which was really his most effective offense in the fight. It's perfectly legal as far as I know.

    The eye poking changed the fight. Jones can't win a fight without eye poking.

    Not as much of an excuse as it was reality... However, DC being gassed because he was sick would be one I haven't heard yet. (Although leading up to the fight I was seeing folks post about how DC was sniffling and wiping his nose during one of the embedded videos)

    I just saw a thread that said Greg Jackson tricked DC into being too nice. Seriously.

    I thought two rounds against the fence with little to no action was a bit much. I would think the same regardless of who was fighting.

    The main excuse should be that Jones didn't play dead in the clinch like Frank Mir and didn't get scared after eating some good shots in the second round.

    Cormier's cardio was not there for a 5 round grind, it was a competitive fight for the first 3 rounds but he got handled in the championship rounds. He also was not prepared enough for dealing with his range, he should of had more high calibre wrestlers with long range but it's easier said then done, I know he prepared with some olympic wrestlers but they didn't have a build like Jones.

    With Shogun, it was the flying knee; with Rampage, it was oblique kicks; with Machida, it was the elbow; with Rashad, it was because he did nothing; with Belfort, it was the armbar; with Sonnen, it was the broken toe (granted, he would have lost the belt); with Gustafsson, it was the spinning elbow; and with Glover, it was the shoulder crank. Now, DC lost because he gassed and was a MW! lololololol.

    Ah yes... I also just saw that the touching of the gloves in the 4th and 5th were meant to disarm DC and cause him to be less aggressive.
