    I can't believe they cheated this kid out of a win.

    You could see Jones' face when they raised his hand. He wasn't sure....

    It's constant in MMA.

    He took the fifth round off. Totally his fault.

    I can see 3-2, I don't agree with it. One of the judges scored it 4-1 Jones though!!! That's not even in the realm of possibility in an alternate crazy stupid land universe. Crazy and stupid can't even explain that.

    Won the first 3 that last round wasn't a 10-8 so it shouldn't have made a difference. Reyes should have won.

    Whether he took the last round off is irrelevant when he won 3 rounds. Not his fault.

    So it is his fault he clearly won the first 3 but judges robbed him of one of them. Sorry but he was exhausted after clearly winning the first 3 rounds against a dominant champion like Jon. Would love to see what you are like in round 5 versus Jon. Simple math is 3 -2 =1 Reyes won this fight and was robbed by Judges (but I think also UFC)

    Thats what happens when any bum from boxing can be a judge and you bring a scoring system in from boxing and try to apply it to MMA

    Yeah, I thought Reyes won but I was absolutely expecting it to be a split decision. When it came in unanimous and one card was 49-46, I thought at that point Reyes was the only possible winner. There's no way in hell Jon Jones won 4 of those rounds.

    Controversial Opinion coming up but Octagon Pressure is KINDA overrated when you're eating clean shots and getting outstruck the majority of the round.

    correct it by never letting it go to the judges. If you want to win a fight, finish the fight

    He won rounds 1-3

    he didn’t take the 5th round off. He was exhausted

    He was backing up whenever he wasn't lunging forward for a power shot. He wasn't effectively counter striking while backing up either. Basically running away. Jon was the aggressor for 90 percent of the fight and he clearly won the last two. Solid decision.

    Do you know how foolish that statement is?

    The scoring goes round by round, not what happens in the fifth round alone. Reyes won 1 - 3 by every available metric.

    Fighters shouldn’t have to fear leaving it to the judges. There needs to be a better system.
    Five judges at least.
    Educated judges (trainers, former fighters, etc).
    Improved scoring system.

    so up 3-1 he should go for broke and risk getting knocked out?
