I know what you mean, and that's one of the reasons I phrased my first sentence the way I did. However, we've scene fighters make that switch in the cage before. Stann vs Sakara, for example.

Some fighters can make the switch, most of them can't (or won't.) I think when a fighter does what stann did it shows exceptional sportsmanship, but when a fighter goes all out until the ref pulls him off the other guy (or lets go of him without showing any concern) it's not commendable, but it isn't particularly reprehensible either.

And if you want to criticize Jones, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to things he's said and done that actually deserve criticism.

I am surprised that no mention of Rampage on Wandy is brought up. While most felt it was Rampage getting revenge, he was clearly still trying to punch Wandy while being pushed away by the ref.

I think others were worse, just surprised by not being mentioned.

Edit: Googled it. The best I found is that Melvin claims Clementi said some racist things to him on the internet (which there would be records of, and there aren't) BEFORE the fight. And, even more suspiciously, Guillard didn't mention any of this to anyone until AFTER Clementi schooled him.

So, I'm calling BS on this story.
