If the later rounds were worth more, the fighters would not go for it in the first rounds. No thanks.
The "What if" arguments are completely stupid. "If they fought another 5 rounds, Jones would've won" - How the hell can you be absolutely sure about that? It's just as plausible to say that Reyes was taking a couple rounds off and in the 6th round he would've come back and starched Jon Jones..... Would've Could've Should've. They had 5 rounds to do what they needed to do, and Reyes won 3 out of 5. BOTTOM LINE!
When there is a fight as close as this one was it’s always gonna go to the champ and it probably should. Like Evans said if you wanna be the champ you GOTTA BEAT DOWN the champ
It’s why you need to finish the guy Keep it of the judges hands List like boxing for years
Joe is dana whites yes boy ! Grow a spine joe ufc judges are corrupt!
I wonder what Stephen A. Smith’s opinion of the fight is?
Dude it’s asinine to count the last two rounds more all that is going to do is to completely disincentivize fighting at a high clip in the first few rounds. It’s so ridiculous
But when Jon wants to turn the heat up he can, countless times have I seen him at the end of a round bump the heat up a little and start blasting his opponents. He didn't do this with Reyes, he fought patiently and carefully which isn't Jon Jones meaning Reyes didn't fight THE Jon Jones, he fought a peice of Jones.
Jon Jones wins fights with Single direct attacks that have knock out intention, take downs (ground and pound when he can) and moving back and blocking when defending rushes. That’s the strategy and it’s obviously worked for his whole career . Dominic just didn’t do enough to beat one of the best ever .
all that corey anderson hype just for him to get melted in rd 1 vs Jan.
In school yard fights it's not about who was winning at the end. Its whose bleeding or was damaged, that's who lost. At the end of the fight it's who did the most damage, who landed most.
Well now UFC have to figure out what to do, whether to do the Reyes vs Jones rematch or Jones vs Blachowicz
real dumb points trying to be made,jon isnt mentally strong enough to make it through the day with out a couple of people talking him through his day.
What a great smart guy..
The IRONY about what Kavanaugh said is that McGregor would have lost to Diaz the 2nd time by that logic
That’s not a good argument in my opinion. If the last two rounds are worth more, the fighters are gonna save it for the last rounds.
Joe Rogan lost all credibility when he didn’t call out Amy Schumer for stealing jokes.
If ya want to be the champ, you have to beat the champ. Never leave it in the hands of these stupid judges.
Well Joe so much for Corey Anderson
watch the fight again at 0.5 playback speed and you will see that jon avoided and slipped most of reyes punches so thats why jon, was given the win.
I didn't know he has Cosmo Alexander on the show..who knew?
Corey got slept in 1st 🤣
In a real fight nobody fights for 25 minutes Joe. They fight for about a minute in the school yard so in that case Reyes won
Corey got KTFO hahaha
Joe rogan is an idiot
if it's to the death conor lost to nate in the second fight sooooo yeah
Reyes won the first 3 red ,Jon won the last 2 .they were all 10-9 rds.these judges in mms & refs in footballers a travesty.significant strikes show 3-2 .& NEW!
jon jones biggest weapon is eyepoke
Two morons talking about hypothetical one round scoring winning fights. There's rounds for a reason dumbass. Reyes won the first 3 rounds therefore he should have won the fight. The UFC is a joke learn to score ass clowns.
Lol fuck rogan with his constant jones dick sucking, FFS! It seems even jones doesn’t know how to score a mma contest now. Theres 5 rounds in a championship fight,you win three of them,you win the fight regardless of whether they’re the first three,the last three or the rounds inbetween 🤷🏻♂️
I know Jones said he wouldn't fight adesanya, but if Israel's fight goes well for him I'd like to see him put some weight on and work towards that fight
Jones was not kicking Reyes ass. Lol 😂😂
Yeahhh yeahhhh mini Rogan he lost aderson the withe dude destroyed him in seconds hahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahaha u suck 🤣💪🏼
Mini Rogan wannabe pro fighter sucks first he was agAinst now he realizes it was ok they gave jones the fight .. of course jones won not clearly but I was not surprise of the decision .. Reyes stop fighting last 2 rounds
6:34 If that is the case then how tf did conor win against nate diaz in the second fight😂 Did you even see how it ended?
I agree with everything said. I would also call round 2 a tie or a win for jon. And reyes at the end looked like he couldnt fight anymore while jon looked fresh. It shows you who really took the most damage. If you're fighting the champ you gotta do more than just slightly out strike him to win. Also reyes was walking backwards 70% of the fight. If that went 1 more round we already know reyes would be on the floor. He couldnt fight anymore, how could you give a guy the win if he can barely keep up.
Good gods, this Johnny Bones dick sucking is sad. Yes, probably the best ever, asterisk, but the to the death comparison is dumb as fuck. A fight to the death and a UFC fight is apple and oranges. You do not start out a death fight in the 4th round. By the way, Cory got the fucked knocked out. Baha
After all the fights Jones has had over 5 yrs of course people know his style Reyes would have to knock him out to win!
If look at end.jon look.had not been in a fight Rheas cut above eyes bruices on his head and legs all bruised up.
If go back watch Jones threw less bunches and landed more .
I watched 3 times I believe Jones the last three.
💪Jones won 3 of 5 rounds easily!!! 🙄
So Corey Anderson huh?? 🤣🤣🤣🤣
"I know this is a dumb way to look at it" - your right Joe that is a really stupid way of looking at it. Dom won 3 rounds. Jon won 2. That is enough. You dont tell a team that they cant just beat the patriots by one touchdown, they are the defending champs! You need to beat them! One touchdown isnt enough so the patriots win. What a dumbass opinion..... For someone who knows the sport so well Joe you somehow manage to have the dumbest opinions that make no sense.
Sounds like everyone has forgotten the criteria for how fights are judge. Jon Jones didn’t, and that’s why he won. “Effective striking/grappling, aggressiveness and octagon control”
Do you think Joe uses a lot of Hall's cough drops after he's done throating Jones every time he fights?
John jones saved his energy first couple of rounds vs Reyes threw some bombs first few rounds. Obviously he wudnt hv the same energy in later rounds..jones gettin unanimous decision is number 1 bullshit
Lmao... steroid and goat in the same sentence. Sociopathic comes to mind about the character not mindset lol. Only to rogaine does the sixth and seventh round matter and you have to beat the champ more in order in order to be crowned the champ. Ignorance equals delusion and if i profited from human fighting then maybe i would do the same... lol Nah... i do not lack integrity. Much love and your welcome i even acknowledged the stupidity.
I think that the judges were too hesitant to give Reyes a 3-0 up in the first three, since it wasn't a landslide by any means, which should be irrelevant. Seems like the latter rounds affect the former.
Jones won because he is the champion He lost that fight They just wanted to break GSP’s record
'" He's 23 years old, and opens up with a flying knee, I mean, who does that!? " *Masvidal has entered the chat*
These guys are full of shit
1999 de Lahoya vs Trinidad, De Lakota thought he had the fight won so the last few rounds he literally ran like a bitch, guess what he lost ! Judges don’t like fighters who run to preserve a win.
It's the Pictograms in my opinion.
I think it’s so funny how people complain instead of just saying you almost did enough get yourself ready and get back in there and win it if you can
“To be the Champ you gotta beat the Champ!” Are rounds scored differently during Championship fights? Pretty sure most people found Reyes won 1-3. Guess he forgot round 4 and 5 count for double the points.
3rd round was up for grabs for sure
"To the death" Aaaaaand I stopped listening.
If everyone knew only the last 5 mins mattered everyone would take the first couple rounds off. You have to elevate the fight round by round but I do agree if it was to the death Jon would’ve won but maybe if Reyes knew the fight was like that he would’ve saved more energy.
