    Reyes clearly should have won 48-47 based on fightmetric having him ahead in striking for the first 3 rounds. However, many people point to his "lacerated, bleeding mouth" as damage from Jon Jones. Admittedly, this looked bad -- but he wasn't nearly as damaged as he looked.

    This is bleeding from the mouth due to gingivitis. I've seen this before in karate and kickboxing -- some guys that don't floss and rinse with mouthwash get gingivitis, and when they get punched in the mouth it bleeds like crazy. It looks like they took a huge amount of damage -- similar to Colby's broken jaw mouth blood.

    But in reality they weren't very hurt -- they just have poor oral hygiene.

    I do. But this happened to me when I was younger. I never used to floss and I had bad gingivitis. My karate gi got covered in blood once from a slapping round house kick that landed with the toes. I barely felt it, but that was enough to burst my inflamed gums.

    A buddy of mine had the same thing happen to him training at Zugec MMA (ZUMA it used to be called) in Victoria, BC.

    Judges probably also gave Jon credit for pressuring forward into the bad breath.

    Serious question - can you floss between rounds... We know you cannot inhale sh!t but flossing is ok, I guess...

    Wow, that's a great closeup. You can actually see the gingivitis right there. Look how puffy his upper gums are at his molars. That is quite bad.
