i saw more action out of both heavy weights in the first three rounds than the little guys had in the earlier rounds. don't think either one had much left in the tank at the end. Cormier(sp) can take a hell of a lot of abuse and not back down. Jones did go to great extremes to put him on the mat just because all the talk about him being a wrestler and not having a chance on the mat.
Loved the cerrone kicks at the end :lol: I've never seen a ufc fighter throw kicks like that before. And yeah I think cormier and jones went pretty hard the first 3 rounds and then the 4th and 5th was just boring and they were both gassed out (cormier being way worse off than jones) I thought it was decently close the first 3. my pick was Cormier to win but jones proved me wrong on his takedown defense. Would still love to see a rematch between the two with less emotions and anger the next time they fight
Cormier did well, but Jones dominated. Was better with take downs, was better with take down defense and it was slightly close on striking with Jones getting the edge. I thought it was a good fight and Im happy to see a champion who isn't just playing it completely safe so as to just barely keep the belt and not take risks. (aka Silva's last couple fights as champ and GSP's last few fights as champ) Im glad to see he's still willing to go hard in the paint. Jones is the goat.
