    Jones seems to give a free eye poke in most of his fights and gets off with just a warning. Then he gets to fight an opponent with bad vision. An interesting strategy. He should be warned at the beginning when they touch gloves. His first poke he gets a point deduction. Second poke he loses the fight. He does it too often for it to be an accident.

    Gus pokes more than Jones in his fights, in fact it's how he won against Manuwa.

    Where's your thread on Gus?

    Only way Jones loses is if another referee says so..

    You can't do that you dickburger. 1st eyepoke should be a point deduction anyways, eye pokes are almost always intentional. They also effect the fight.

    Jones should have to be warned about that 90" reach for starts

    Gus isn’t fighting for the belt anytime soon and he’s not really talked about as much. But yeah, you have a good point. Repeat offenders need to be made to stop.

    Pretty sure the new rules allow for immediate point deductions, even with outstretch fingers as they are a foul now.

    for his last fight with gus, i'm pretty sure the ref was on top of the eye poking, saying he will take points away, right away, if any eye pokes happened. pretty sure he was aware of the jones' eye poking past the way he went about it. good reffing from that gandolf looking mf'er

    He's got a reach advantage of 5-10 inches and his striking game depends on jabs. Not his fault and refs realize this and give him leeway cause if they didn't it would be discrimination cause no one else has Jones's wingspan.

    When is the last time Jones eyepoked an opponent? It used to be a staple of his offense, but not so much anymore.

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know what sherdog's reaction was to Teymur getting a point deduction?

    Pretty rare to see a point deduction for the first accidental poke. Wonder if it was a Brazilian Commission thing?

    Most people agreed with it, there's a thread on it if you want to look it up.
