UFC fighters react to controversial Jones-Reyes fight

  UFC fighters react to controversial Jones-Reyes fight After Jon Jones' controversial win over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 last weekend, theScore asked UFC fighters for their scores and what they thought of the judges' call. Curtis Blaydes, heavyweight: I had it Dom was up three rounds to two. I gave him rounds one, two, and three, and I gave Jon four and five. I think everyone's talking about Octagon control. I didn't really see it as Octagon control. I just saw it as Jon was hoping to get into the clinch by just pressuring him and Dom's footwork wouldn't allow it. That's not being controlled; that's taking what is being given. If a guy is gonna walk you down, you don't walk into him. You take angles.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones went on a Twitter rant Tuesday to defend his controversial win over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247.

"Dominick out struck me by literally 12 shots. I scored the takedowns, was the aggressor, (controlled) the Octagon every round, had more significant strikes landed," Jones wrote. "Dom completely stopped fighting in the championship rounds and has the audacity to be mad at the judges."

Jones earned a unanimous-decision win over "The Devastator" on Saturday for his third straight title defense and 11th overall. Many people, including UFC president Dana White and Reyes himself, thought Reyes won the fight.

Judge Joe Solis faced heavy scrutiny after scoring the fight 49-46 for Jones. Reyes seemed to clearly win at least the first two rounds.

"Don’t be mad at the judges, be mad at Dom’s conditioning guy," Jones added. "Man started to give up when the water got deep and is now going around doing interviews talking about being robbed. When will these young boys start taking responsibility?"

"Having fights like that tickles my pickle, it makes me feel so alive," Jones wrote. "Makes me feel like a man. Especially when you display having balls the way I did, nothing but a win."
