    Whether or not you believe Jones eye pokes are illegal/ should be points deducted/ Ok or whatever, the fact is it does happen often. Sherdoggers with gifs waiting to prove it everyday. Kind of ironic is the fact that his striking coach lost an eye (different circumstances) yet he trains/condones/turns a blind eye to it happening! Maybe he is win at all costs, forget the eye injuries that are possible- though I have not heard of anyone getting a messed up eye after a Jones fight.

    It tarnishes Winkeljohn's legacy.

    Surprised it took this long for his coaches to be criticized.

    i think that it should be just like 12-6 elbows. Give a warning, and if it happens continuously, take a point....btw, can we get rid of the dumb 12-6 elbow rule?

    Couldn't you just comment on another eye poke thread instead of starting a new one?

    Apparently he discusses Jones eye pokes in an interview post Glover.

    I asked someone to tell what was said as I couldn't watch it at work, but they never did.

    I want Big John McCarthy to ref Jones next fight with Gus.

    McCarthy has some real beef against Jones with his open palm technique

    Hopefully. And it'll be an immediate point deduction if he does it after a warning in the lockerroom prior to the fight.

    honestly the guys fighting him need to complain during rounds, inbetween rounds, pre fight etc etc get the ref really thinking about it.
