Thankfully he can't bust a grape as Rampage said.
until now. amazing chin and excellent decision. those judges were on point tonight......
He is undeniably the best to ever do it
Reyes didn't hurt him once when he landed
Jones can go 5 rounds in his sleep
True Champion mentality
The Martial arts spirit
Never gives up
His post USADA cardio is nothing like it used to be. Pre-USADA Jones would not have allowed Reyes to put him in an 0-3 hole before turning it on.
Chin is absolutely crazy.
But he is so hittable.
Thats why i nevwr liked his chances at hw
Imagine a glancing blow from francis or rozenstruik..
He did nothing in the first three rounds. Even Conor wouldn't have gassed with that pace. Juiced Jones' cardio was amazing, yes. Clean Jones... we've not seen any aggression and volume to judge. Also clean Jones shoots a lot less. People say he was trying to beat Santos in his own realm, but after the Reyes fight I'm pretty sure he doubts his cardio.
His chin is iron, yes. That's barely any news. Jones has eaten some hard punches from knockout artists without a care in the world.
Yet there is one thing - when a fighter is dominant and doesn't get hit a lot, you don't talk about his chin. We now can see how great Jones' chin really is, because he gets hit a lot more.
Nothing suss about that cardio at all eh?
Chin is not everlasting. Remember Chuck.
There's a champion a couple of weight classes down that is more suss.
Lasted his whole career basically, until late 30s
Can’t disagree. Top 5 GOAT with or without the goods
put picos make that cardio unfair IMO
All the hardcores know
Because all the hardcores listen to Heavy Hands, and those guys make exactly those points every time Jon fights
Chuck was a tank. That fight between he and Rampage in Pride was brutal as hell and he never looked for a way out.
Beyond suss, to be fair. lol Maybe it's in the long distance genes.
What I thought was interesting about this fight is that even when Reyes was landing more and winning the fight he physically looked like he was the losing party
So much this. Before, Jones was winning with his A level striking, grappling and stamina. We barely see anything heavy land on him. Now that those took a steep drop, he's winning because he's able to take those heavy hits that have been landing more consistently. If he didn't have the chin he did he would've been KOed in the first three rounds.
He took a clean headkick this fight from a top striker and didn't even get ROCKED. Headkicks are often one hit KOs at that level.
his outstanding attributes are his reflexes and defence. He sees the strikes coming and rolls with them.
He is also able to use steroids to enhance his strength and endurance.
He is also able to eyepoke his opponents.
He has usada in his pocked and a free ticket to pulse.
He has an iron chin but Reyes landed clean and a lot on Jon. That should count for something.
This was 3-2 possibly 4-1 Reyes.
The wrestling didnt amount to any damage and was only briefly on the ground. Reyes landed the harder shots.
Was straight up 3-0 after 3 rounds for reyes imo.
I guess it matters how much octagon control means to the judges but what?
Great performance from both guys though. Should be a rematch down the track.
