    Someone should punch him in the hand. It could probably break his fingers if he has them extended like that.

    That wouldn't happen but I'd laugh if someone injured him with oblique kicks or an eyepoke. That would be awesome for him to get exactly what he dishes out. I'd bet the same ppl who say he's not dirty would come in here rioting and raving about how dirty whoever was to do that to him is.

    Refs need to stop allowing bullshit like this from fighters even if they're champion or not.

    A friend of mine reckoned he'd take this approach:

    At the first poke, tell the ref "Sort him out or I will".
    At the second poke, kick to the nuts. While Jones is on the ground tell the ref: "I warned you, now are you gonna sort him out or am I gonna have to fishhook him next?"

    Would never happen but I thought it was funny.

    Jack Slack has a good article on the fight and it includes this, which I think is particularly damning given the author:

    It would be unfair of me to praise Jones' incredible shutting down of his one dimensional, but dangerous opponent, without stating my distaste for his dirtier methods. Jones got away with murder at UFC 172, extending his hands towards Teixeira's face and pacifying Teixeira with the threat of running—eye first—onto one of Jones' deliberately splayed fingers.

    How is a BJJ blackbelt with great stand up considered "one dimensional"

    I think it's more about the techniques actually used in the fight. It's the same way Nelson is a one dimesional fighter. He's actually very skilled, but chooses to stick to the overhand right.

    Look, Jones can't be held responsible if people keep eyeing his fingers. They're just out there getting some air, trying to dry out, and all these guys' eyes just can't help themselves.
    You have to know what you don't know.

    The vid clip with Rampage is perhaps the MOST outrageous that I've seen. Jones actually FOLLOWS his face while he bobs and weaves!

    My point?
    More of a question really.

    People have stated that the outstretched arms are for "gauging distance".
    But after seeing all the vids/pics you guys have posted... it SEEMS to me that he isn't trying to gauge the distance... but that he is literally trying to put his fingers in people's faces.
    NOT poke them in the eye (I won't go that far as to suggest that's his goal)
    But it sure seems like he is deliberately trying to obscure his opponent's vision.

    Am I way off?

    Again... no FIGHTING folks! Don't want to be an instigator.
    Just seriously shocked by what I have seen on here... and what I have apparently been oblivious to??!

    Do other fighter's do this, and I just don't notice?!!?
    Or is this something Jones has come up with?
    The way i look at the hand out is to measure distance to set up elbows. It is a muay thai technique as someone pointed out in the earlier pages as well as a way to throw off the opponent. Notice how rampage is worrying about the hand and where it is and not the punches or elbows that come after it? My best example is in basketball, when a player is defending another player and puts their hand directly in their face. Now you have to worry about a persons hand in your face when trying to make the basket, or in this case throw a punch or go for a takedown.

    One of these things is not like the others:
