    He should have said "he really needed Cain as a training partner"

    Those body shots sucked the potential right out of him.

    SOmeone should troll Jones quote along the lines of him not allowing for a rivalry to even exist because he is going to finish DC in impressive fashion which was far from what happened.

    They were heavy as fuck shots definitely paid off in champ. rds. Any normal person wouldve instantly shit their pants and pissed blood for weeks if hit with one of those.

    If Werdum beats Velasquez (I don't think so) DC back to HW.

    Absolutely.

    But ... Jones has more room for growth than DC, physically and mentally. Don't get me wrong - DC is smart and hungry, and he will get better after this fight. It just remains to be seen who improves more / faster.

    He's not going to say "DC tried he just isn't good enough"...

    He recovered enough to pick his ass up and toss him gently in the 5th though. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing that. No doubting DC's heart.

    He took off an entire round to save energy.

    And instead of using it to mount some kind of hail mary offense (going for a knock out) he instead used all of it on one TD to (I assume) prove a point

    When DC himself said he hurt him with bodyshots.

    And your boy held onto the fence for dear life ahahahahaha. DC knew by then he wasn't gonna get no damn KO. Jones had the whole fight covered. I even think Jones LET DC hit him with all those uppercuts and punches to prove that he has the chin AND the wrestling ability. This fight broke my heart though, I was sighing for hours.

    I have to rewatch the fight, but if he grabbed the fence it was for a split second, he did not hold onto it (like Aldo v Mendes)

    This is pretty disrespectful. Saying such things about DC.
