But they feel Jones letting Machida fall on his face is the worst act of unsportsmanlike conduct that has ever happened. If he says Machida is out like Matt Wiman said that he thought Danzig was out and he was wrong he's a cheat. I don't think there is any confusion that certain people who decry it as one of the worst things ever. The sportsmanlike thing to do is for the fighter in the submission to tap before he falls on his face or breaks a bone. That's what I'm saying.
What Jon Jones did wasnt bad.

I was simply stating that after the fight was stopped he could have held on to the body until the ref came and grabbed him.

It was a middle ground for the people saying

"What should he have laid him down gently and tucked him in!!"
