    You expect him to be as blatant as Moe from the three stooges? I think Jon will do whatever he can get away with. He has poked many of his opponents in the eyes. Honestly if you are constantly palming someone's face how can it still be considered an accident when you poke them in the eyes? How can his disregard for his opponents be any more obvious? If I continuously speed down the road and get tickets eventually it would seem as though I am intending to get a ticket. I understand the outcome of my decision even if I don't get a ticket every time I still get pulled over. It might as well be on purpose.


    I should put out a video on instagram. That'll fix it. Disposableassassin gets lots of tickets muh he's the biggest speeder on the road muh. There now everyone should believe that I shouldn't be penalized for speeding. Cops are just haters. Its not like my actions are endangering anyone elses health.

    Boners frequently poke people in the eye socket. Your momma wasn't lying when she said you could put an eye out with that thing.

    To me the issue isn't so much the open hand as it is the jab like motion he throws with an open hand. Its one thing to defend with an open hand its another thing to paw at someone's face.

    While not supporting what Jones does with the eyepokes there are two objective ways to look at it...

    - That he is flat out doing it intentionally to use the threat of being poked in the eye as a defense like you and others have suggested.

    - Second being that he is using the outstretched hand to create as much space for himself as possible and control his opponents positioning to take full advantage of his reach. In doing so naturally you are going to use an open hand as it allows you to grab quicker as well as deflect better then you would with a closed fist.

    Personally I don't think he is doing the latter of the two I don't really think there is an intention there to hit the eyes it would be a dumb move on his part to intentionally go out there looking to do so knowing full well that at some point it would catch up to him. I do agree with what others have said that the refs need to cut this behaviour out from the get go, but the problem is they don't want to be the one influencing a championship match by taking points. MMA refs in general are very gun shy about taking points in even prelim matches much less main events.

With so many pokes now on Jones resume I'd wager its honestly just a matter of time before this behavior brings about a similar result.
    That fight still pisses me off. Easily one of the worst calls in the history of MMA. The fact that the ref called that a TKO was absolutely sickening.

    ...so how do you account for elbows to the back of the head, forearms across the throat, covering opponents mouth and nose on the ground, etc?

    So now Glover's injured from that arm crank apparently, ...

    "Adding injury to insult, Glover Teixeira not only lost his bid to remove the gold belt from around UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ waist at UFC 172 recently, he also suffered a torn labrum in the opening round of the fight.

    The injury occurred when Jones, who masterfully defended his belt, cranked on Teixeira’s arm. Lesser men would have given up, but Teixeira fought on for the duration of the five-round fight, not winning the belt, but winning over most anyone that doubted his shot at the title.

    Teixeira’s manager, Ed Soares, confirmed the injury to FoxSports.com on Friday, saying that his fighter is likely to undergo surgery sometime in the next two weeks. A timeframe for his return is yet to be determined.

    Despite the torn labrum, as well as some battered ribs, Teixeira took nothing away from Jones after the fight, simply saying he was the better man that night.

    Jones surprised many pundits, who thought he would try to utilize his height and reach and stay away from Teixeira’s inside game, where the Brazilian is particularly proficient. The champ instead fought a large part of the fight on the inside, besting Teixeira where he is strongest, showing another new wrinkle in his own game.

    Teixeira lasted to the final bell, losing a unanimous decision. The loss to Jones ended a 20-fight unbeaten streak."

    So does it constitute as a 'dirty' maneuver more now, seeing as how it has put Glover on the shelf? Or is it simply just 'unsportsmanlike' because it is within the rules?

    I called it dirty earlier and I still call it dirty especially due to Jones's own attitude towards the incident. "Aw, nice." is highly idiotic thing to say if you've just put someone on the shelf for months preventing them from earning money to pay the bills.

    Yes, you can get your knee busted in submissions etc, but with that crank once the opponent uses it, there's no tapping to it before something is torn. At least to me it looked like a pretty basic technique, yet nobody else seems to be doing it or else we would have had many injured guys by now.
