    Give the guy his respect ✊🏽 you might hate him but he’s the best. The kid has proved himself for the his future but he loses that fight.

      I wish he would give up the religious angle alreddy..
      Usually when people less with that stuff they are phony. Otherside of that coin is plenty of people are conscious of the creator, yet they don't say it ...
      When you really swaddle yourself in god conciousness its unnecessary to speak it because people sense it when its genuine,,,, just saying 😶

          He had his shot.. He put it back in the hands of the judges against a man who is quite possibly the greatest martial artist of all times, and has been the most dominant fighter in the history of the UFC..
          Not to mention the fact he’s undefeated, and his only real challenge til now led to him demolishing the same guy in the second fight.
          Congratulations.. U went the distance with the champ and earned a potential rematch.
          Now get back in line cuz u blew ur shot.

            Let's put this to vote.
            What would you rather watch?

            1. Jon's vs Gustafsson

            2. Jon's vs Cormier

            3. Jon's vs reyes "the backfooter"

            Witch one was more exciting for you to watch?

                Just sounds so corny when Jon is talking so much about christianity and "representing" that In the ufc. Action talks louder than words. Also these philosofical sentences.. something feels off. I'd guess it's because I feel strongly that its not genuine. He tries so hard to save his face and hide his past under the mat. He's not humble, he's not a great winner, he's selfish I'd say. Great fighter if not the best, fake person tho. Anyone Else want to add something or have a different interpretation?

                    jones was moving forward every round he was pushing the pace he had a few take downs he was strong every round never slowed down and he is the current belt holder . Leaving it to the judges in a title fight is a no no . One must out right beat the champ in any division to take the crown .

                                You definitely deserve it champ! You play conservative until the 4th round. a lesson to learn from a new young fighter, if you want to be the champion, you had to do better than that! A win is a win, no excuses. Everyone entitles to his or her opinion. Jones is a goat, no question!

                                  Reyes was running around the whole fucking ring and Jones tired trying to catch him still won. Stop it. I remember when yall said Floyd ran but oh now some other group does it and its not running. LOOK BLACK AMERICAN MEN ARE THEE BEST stop it. We have to fight every fight outside the ring of the world and inside the ring so our fight never stop nor do we have time to rest. Stop it. Get over yourself.

                                    Thats the reason the whiteman let him win. Reyes would ask for money for title fights while jones would be happy just making a living. Every division is making millions, diaz made a whole new bmf division, jones just happy fighting for scraps its ok everyones got to eat.

                                      No way jones or Dana would ever agree to fighting Reyes again just like Anthony Joshua will never box Andy Ruiz again. Way too risky. Jones has a much better chance against the much slower Corey anderson . Don’t think he will fight stipe either . One of those 🚀 from stipe lands it’s good night Irene

                                                      man, as a fan; fuck no you didn't display the heart of a champion in any round in this fight! where's the elbow-ey Jon Jones, the shoulder strikes and elbows in the clinch, the unassumingly good wrestler with surprising trips, the flying knees?

                                                      man Jon Jones might as well have had a replacement in this fight, I wouldn't have been too disappointed if Reyes had won, at least the Jon Jones of old would come back, cos you know there'd be an immediate rematch, cos that's just how they do shit these days

                                                        Jones vs Reyes was exactly like Boros vs Saitama. Boros(Reyes) was supposed to fight Garou(Rakic) but ran into the Goat early if you watched One Punch Man you understand my reference lol

He has to dominate the whole fight to win with decision . Not slow down 4th and 5th round showing the judges the champion is still in control

                                                                                        • big country

Jones has alot of wear and tear on his body , 10 years worth, this is why jones and Reyes are like two years apart in age and Reyes looks way more fresher and explosive like he is the younger fighter no wear and tear baggage, and why dana white states Reyes, will be the future of the light heavyweight division. Jones may not be old but his body probably feels 45yrs old.
