    FAILED! Reyes beat him to the punch, made Jones run away half a dozen times.
    Jones also said he can take him down, submit him. Jones did nuttin.
    Is this all usada clearing up his pictograms or is Jones getting old and past his prime?
    Lets get this thing clear, although Reyes arguably beat Jones, he is just a journeyman, he is an IT technician with just a few years of training in MMA and MMA is his second job. Jones on the other hand is the most dominant champ in the history of the UFC, who's been ruling the division for 10 years.
    What happened to Jones, dogs?

    Jones proved that GSP is the true GOAT over his past 3 fights.

    Just to play devils advocate GSP tapped to strikes arguably lost to hendricks and subsequently retired after his first real challenge in years. Jones got a challenge and wants a rematch, not retirement.

    Glass houses n such.

    GOAT talk is justification for fanboi obsession

    The fight was more or less Jones going forward with pressure. And reyes on his back foot going backward..

    Reyes is an athlete. Jones is just a cage fighter.

    Reyes has better footwork, hands, head movement, southpaw stance, lateral movement. = Boxing
    Studied Jones pretty good, which he learned from football/boxing.

    Jones hasn't learned how to box in the last 15 years.
    Either Reyes has a boxing background nobody on sherdog knows of, or he is a damn fast learner.

    Either way, Reyes is younger and seems to be a faster learner. Jones is fucked in the rematch.

    Nah Jon Jones blocked or slipped most. And rolled with a few.

    I think i saw like three really solid strikes landing clean on Jones. A hook, a Uppercut, and a brutal body kick.

    Mute Joe Rogan. And watch the fight again.

    Who else?
    I mean P4P right now, not all time.
    Most P4P rankings have Khabib at #2 right now.

    shut up, reyes came early, busted his whole load, while missing most of his strikes, jones dominated dominik and with unlimited time, reyes could very well die, since jones was fresh while sucking away essential life energy.

    Or you can say Reyes is just that good. New breed of fighters, they cement the holes Jones used to be dominant

    Not surprised the one guy on here who fights actually knows what the fuck he watched lol some of these kids should take notes.

    Jones didn't land 64% of his shots and keep pressing the whole fight by accident

    I agree with what you guys are saying to an extent. It was clear as day that Jones is the more skilled striker. He kept the pressure on and had Reyes panic flailing at times in the second. Jon didn't pull the trigger as often as he should have.

    Fights aren't scored on who is the better fighter, though, and aggression is prioritized below effective striking and grappling. There is a very reasonable argument to be made that Reyes landed better shots and wasn't controlled in the grappling department for the first 3 rounds.
