Interesting to see so many coaches, fighters, MMA journalists etc. speaking unanimously about this. I think this is the first time so many people are in agreement about a wrong judges' decision.
We need to bring kickboxing judges to MMA, I'm telling you, that is the solution.
I think I'm done watching the UFC. First, Cerrone taking an obvious dive, now with the shabby judging in the Jones/Reyes fight.
About 80% of the fans,media and professionals are unanimous about this matter, only some Jones fans deny it. I am a fan of Jones too, but I criticize this decision as I do about all the other things that need to be criticized. I criticize Jones' eye pokes, peds, fighting mws and past their primes legends, oblique kicks and I still think he is top 3 goat.
I wish Longo was my coach.
Ray Longo and Chris Weidman predicted Reyes would win by KO, because obviously it would make Weidman's first round KO loss to him look a lot better. Now that it didn't pan out that way, they're trying to save face by playing into this 'Reyes clearly won' narrative as if that somehow validates their own defeat.
what about the 80% of everybody who think Reyes won?
Except Reyes clearly won 1 2 3
Dude what a shit time for MMA/UFC. Its really turned into Boxing. Giving Reyes a truly deserved win would have made the rematch one of the biggest fights in history. Their brazen efforts to keep cash cows has made most of us now just give up. I'm going to become more of a casual and tune into fights that are legit like Tony/Khabib, Volk vs Max 2, Stipe/DC3 and Mazzy Goat/ Usman. Cancelled fight pass, wont pay for another thing because
Not like thats going to do anything but if all the people which is what 80% of the MMA community that are over it did it, then it would hit them where it hurts. Fuck the embeddeds, countdowns, any media, conferences, weigh ins, prelims n shit. Just stream the big fight I'm waiting for!
I respect this attitude.
I personally hate Jones but I do think that he is an AMAZINGLY gifted fighter and I'm pretty sure he could be very successful WITHOUT all the pokes, illegal strikes, roids and shady decisions. I would have no issue with accepting him as GOAT if won all his fights without bending the rules.
I'm cancelling espn+ too. Im not spending any money at the bars either.
IMG buying the UFC was the worst thing
Been watching for 20 years and it's never been this ridiculous. Boxing has this almost every big card when the UFC it would be every now and then. Now its seems its every other week there is some bullshit decision or ref fuck up. 2020 is the year of the rat hence the Jon and Conor special treatment.
Woah lets not get too crazy bro.
Longo needs to sit the Chris down and have a good ol' fashioned Rogan-esque "talk" with him instead
And there are plenty of other people who disagree with you. Does your opinion mean more or something? I’m confused.
I’m crying rn
The judges need to be held accountable, as do fat striking coaches.
Look here, its the worlds smallest violin playing for me bra
Do you not feel like they treat you for a fool tho? Yeah "pulsing".....
