Those elbows shouldn't be illegal. What's the difference between dropping elbows from 12 to 6 compare to throwing elbows from your back to the top of someone's head from 3 to 9? That's what was happening in the fight right after Jones' and those are allowed. It's not like gravity is adding any power to the elbows when they are coming down instead of sideways.

Anyone remember james irvin vs thiago silva, if memory serves me thiago kneed irvin when he was still on the ground was that not intentional? why was thiago awarded the win in that incident? this jones thing is just another in a long line of iffy calls made in this sport recently

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

I think the call is absolutly right! If you do an illegal move like Jones did, you have to be disqualified for it because otherwise we don't need those rules anymore. Every other fighter would try to do it as well to win the fight this way. It's good to see this call! Even through i feel bad for Jones record.

Good point!
I guess i remember Rogan said something like you can break Ice with them is that true?
If it is true, then you can also split a head with them.

It was a pretty silly decision really. I can't be bothered to repeat things that have alrdy been said, so I will just add that how would you match make for Jones next fight? Would you give him a step down in quality as if it was a loss, when really he should be stepping up?

I was kind of confused, said Jones (9-1). I thought a point was being taken away. I wasnt really positive what was going on.

I thought I won, he continued. When they said I lost, I thought, No, it cant be happening,
thats from a yahoo article, good try tho.

I didn't win that fight. I did something illegal. That's my youth and inexperience. I messed up. I threw an illegal move and I didn't win. If I was smarter, I would have thrown the elbows more correctly. I got to go back to the drawing board." -Jon Jones

its hard to tell with you saying he should take a step down from this

how can anyone in their right mind think he should face someone lower than a person he just destroyed.

*Dana voice* This is not ****ing boxing
