    Couldn't Jones just close his hand instead of fingerfucking people's faces?
    You have to know what you don't know.

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.

    Who cares what kind of technique Jones is attempting to utilize. Fact is, he has poked over 60% of his opponents in the eyes, often multiple times.

    Yes, Rampage was concerned about the hand or more so the fingers but i bet he was just as aware of the fingers coming at his face as he was the elbows or punches.

    Your best example is a great example of someone 'grasping at straws'. MMA is not basket ball. But if it was a proper comparison.... Sure in basketball guys put their hands out but I am also willing to bet they get a foul called if their finger ends up in their opponents eyes.

    Keep trying to justify Jones actions all you want but you are starting to sound either silly or so blinded by your Jones love you are irrational.

    Fucking basketball. Wow.

    Question, could Rondo's flat palm cause some serious damage to someones eye and potentially their career?

    A flat palm does not equate to fingers pointed at the eyes.

    Excuse my basketball ignorance, but would Rondo have been suspended if he would have done that with his fingers pointed straight out and jammed them directly into his opponents eyes?

    No. Beyond Cat's points, notice that the basketball player's hand is vertical- showing enough decency to reduce the risk of an eye poke. Then review how Bone's uses his hands - fingers extended towards the face.

    It's a small difference. And it's the difference between doing Thai technique, checking jabs, etc. and doing those things dirty.
