    I have seen people in here saying that Jones won the 2nd round. I just watched that round again and there is literally no chance in hell Jones won that round. For those that believe he won that round, please enlighten me, what did you watch and what did I miss?

    I saw Reyes staying on the outside, blitzing in from time to time landing 1-2 as well as countering with an uppercut and going for some heavy leg kicks, etc. I saw Jones walk after him, eating leg kicks and really not seeing that much success on the feet beside a few jabs a few glancing front kicks that did nothing but to push Reyes away while he was trying to get closer to Reyes, pretty counterproductive if you ask me.

    He did not win that round, end of the story, go watch it again...

    Nope, fixed fights are pathetic.

    Unless the decision is reversed, the UFC is going to lose A LOT of fans after that crooked decision.

    Wait, I thought people were arguing the early Jones round was 3, not 2. What exactly are the 3 rounds Jon won?

    Jones fans don't even have an argument on how he won the 2nd round at all. Strange, it's almost as if you didn't watch the fight at all. For me, this was a clear robbery. But Jones might be the only fighter that can eat leg kicks while advancing, but somehow him advancing is worth more than his opponent continuously kicking his leg and him losing his footing.

    However, I would like to hear an argument from someone that actually thought he won the 2nd round. Because according to polls I have seen people thought that was the deciding round in the fight, which I just don't see at all.

    No doubt! I was surprised how easy Reyes made it look R1-3. And the fact he was never threatened in R4-5 should make this decision easy.

    Anyone who honestly thinks Jon won round 2 needs to get their brains checked asap!
    Jon did next to nothing in that round except for have his head used as a punching bag.

    Three is what Id say was the least convincing round that Reyes won, and even that one was clearly for him.

    I'm not a Jones fan, but I scored the 2nd for Jones as when I watched it I thought it looked like Dom was throwing a hell of a lot, but most of it wasn't landing. To me it looked like Jones did a great job of slipping punches, having things land on the glove instead, and he landed more effective kicks.

    I was however shocked to see that Dom outstruck him in the significant strikes department when looking at the stats.

    I haven't rewatched it yet, so I might need to now keeping those stats in mind and then see what I think.
