It's also frowned upon in amateur wrestling, penalized as passive or fleeing. Anyway, it's also really okay with me, what Gus did a couple of times, to defend against Jones' low-shoot takedown attempts. And Jones has been guilty of that, too (though not in this fight). It's just one of the interesting nuances of MMA, differentiating it from other combat sports. Congrats, still-champ Jones! Congrats, toughest-challenger-yet Gus! GREAT FIGHT!
