    How hard is it to just produce a curved glove ? I do not recall Pride having all that many eye pokes, every UFC practically has an eye poke and they don't seem to be doing anything about it when there are options.

    Starting? You get 2 free eye pokes and a groin strike. A lot of fighters are taking advantage of it. I wouldn't say starting, it's already happening.

    You're right.

    I feel so, so fucking bad for Stipe here and I'm not even what someone would consider a fan of him. I mean I like him and all, he's a high quality fighter and a high quality human being, but just never jumped on the bandwagon.

    If Stipe is forced to retire and DC gets to fight for the heavyweight championship after basically ending the mans career, I lose all respect for him.

    Stipe basically gets his eyes clawed out of his skull, still manages to win, has to retire, and DC fights for the vacant belt? Insanity.

    Because he's definitely the first fighter to eye poke. Everyone fights with MMA gloves straight from the wrapper and they aren't broken in yet. I blame the UFC for not fixing what has been on obvious problem for a long time.

    It’s obvious it was part of the plan

    every time he eye poked him he immediately rushed in and tried to finish him

    Any time some actually does it unintentionally there’s an immediate hesitation

    with this fraud he’d land the eye poked then immediately try to rush in and finish

    he’s absolutely not the good guy he portrays

    Stipe scared of DC.

    Jones will for sure go up to HW to beat DC a third time for the HW belt then move back down to 205 while never defending the HW belt.

    Yep, I’d like to hear a reason why his eyes aren’t healing at all, I mean they could be healing slower than expected but not healing at all I would need to hear a rumour with some sort of explanation to believe it

    seeing how stipe and bisping only have one eye, the ufc should create a belt for Baddest Motherfucking Pirate and have them fight for it

    DC is a scumbag, he needs people like Jones so he can point his freakin fingers (pun intendti) and say that is the bad guy!

    If the refs *all* do it, it's a rule. Real life only cares about reality, not perception of reality.
