The only reason vitor has problem hitting people in the back of their head is because they all have a tendency to end up face down on the canvas

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

Vitor is a beast, and his boxing is super crisp. Jones will need to use his reach to keep him at bay, otherwise it could be a short night for Bones.

I really see Jones wanting no part of Vitor's stand-up though and taking him down.

Jackson is always about the safe game plan and I'd doubt if we saw anything different than take downs, ground and pound and sub attempts from Jones.

I just see a guy way too small to be fighting Jones.

Vitor used to fight as a HW, so it's not size alone his biggest challenge against Jones, but the combination size + talent.

The events he did hit the back of opponents heads is kind of overenphasized, this cannot be suggested as a cheating trademark. Happened a couple of times, not pretty to see, but I don't think the shots were planned to land there.

Aikiyama, Franklin, Rumble, Tito, Chuck and Tank I believe. And I'm sure I'm forgetting some. The only time he doesn't do it is when he doesn't get the chance to, I.e against Anderson.

Yeah, but I still think the speed of his multiple punches sequence combined with opponents turning their heads trying to get away is the main reason of these events. I think he's been reckless at most while trying to bring a quick end to the fight. Maybe...
