    You gotta give him props for that. The guy was taking some nasty shots, and kept coming forward. Most Jones' opponents start back peddling, and concede the fight. DC fought til the bitter end, even while his gas tank was running beyond empty.

    He even proved he had heart after the bell rung.

    I dont think any of us Jones Fans doubted DC's heart of skill. We just knew that the anti-Jones brigade was underestimating Jones again.

    Nope, people with heart don't sucker punch after the bell.
    If he had heart he would have tried harder for a TD before the fight was basically over.
    But it might be a good thing too much heart gets you KO'd or choked out trying to comeback being down to the champ. So N-O.

    What is this? Do you really need confirmation on an internet forum that your fighter has "heart"?

    Of course DC does and so does Jones. But he is not the better fighter, plain and simple.

    All DC has proven is that Gus deserved the rematch.

    I'm not biased towards either but I think DC has proven to a lot of people that he deserved a title shot. For those that TRULY are DC fans, they would know how decent his cardio was when he was at HW and how durable he was in later rounds. To me, his cardio at LWH isn't quite there yet but DC has always had a good chin and decent cardio.

    There was no need to prove his heart. That was never in doubt.

    I don't think I remember anyone questioning DC's heart (not seriously anyway).

    Conversely, DC and his fans were kind of homing in on the deep water --> grind --> no heart --> "Break Bones" thing.

    How did that work out?

    They both have heart and grit. They fight looked like it hurt. A lot.

    This..

    Most Jones fans new this was gonna be a fight. The people rooting for DC were the ones talking most of the shit.
