So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m not a Jon Jones fan. I mean, despite the fact that he’s the biggest fuckity-fuck in sports, he’s also the reason why I became a fan of MMA. The truth is, a lot of people have turned a blind eye to his shenanigans because he was seemingly unbeatable in the Octagon. With that being said, his run might be coming to an end, man. The way I see it, he lost that fight to Dominick Reyes.
Ok, for those who missed it, Jones just “defended” his Light Heavyweight championship against Reyes at UFC 247. Now, I put “defended” in quotations because he lost that fucking fight, fam. Look, if we’re going by the rules of the sport, in a five-round fight, whoever wins the most rounds should win the match, right? Well, in that case, Reyes won the first three rounds, bruh. Real talk, I have NO idea how these judges could’ve scored it any other way, son. Frankly, he was pressuring Jones the whole time and hitting him with some good left hands.
Now, it is true that Reyes started to run out of gas in the fourth and fifth rounds. By then, Jones was picking up the pace and Reyes was doing a lot of backpedaling. However, that doesn’t negate Reyes’ work in rounds one through three. Fam, one of the judges scored the fight 49-46 for Jones, meaning they believed that Jones won four rounds. Bruh, that’s fucking impossible. IM-POSSIBLE! Listen, Jones clearly won rounds four and five. I miiiiiight be able to see an argument for round three. But, there was NO way that Jones won any of those first two rounds. So, I’m fucking clueless as to how a judge could get the scoring so wrong, man.
In the end, I feel bad for Reyes, son. On one hand, I knew he had the physical attributes to give Jones problems. On the other hand, I doubted his chances because he should’ve lost his previous fight to Volkan Oezdemir. Either way, he put on the performance of a lifetime and should’ve gotten the nod against Jones. By and by, Jones is at a crossroads, man. Shit, this is now the second fight in a row where his opponent has a legitimate argument for beating him, fam. Like, Thiago Santos gave him hell on one leg, bruh. In addition, Jones might need to stay away from Heavyweight, people. Frankly, if he’s having trouble at 205, it would probably be best to stay away from heavy-handed muhfuckas like Stipe Miocic. All I can say is, at this rate, the downfall of Jones might come sooner rather than later, brethren. That is all. LC out.
