HIs chin is too strong man. He's pure granite.

It's possible, though.
Serious chin, you called that. He took a couple huge hits like they were nothing.

Can't wait for a rematch, that looked like a real war if not God the injury. Respect for Jones not going after it at all. It seemed like he went out of his way not to kick it.

I thought the one judge had it right and Santos took 3 rounds and did enough to win the fight...and it was quite incredible that he did that on one leg.

Still, it's not surprising that the belt doesn't change hands or the Jones legacy is tarnished with an actual loss unless the champ is clearly beat. That's just the way she goes...

Jones needs help due to the damage Santos did.

Santos needs help due to his knee buckling.

I expected Jones to run through Santos, but at the end I had Santos winning.

Bear, im expecting a link to the post conference interviews, dont let me down. I doubt we’ll see askren as he’s probably at a hospital. Guy got humbled tonight.

I could see 48-47 for either jones or santos, which tells you how good santos really was tonight since he did it with one knee.

Askren’s debut told me he did not have the skillset to be in there with an MMA fighter. This is fucked up to say, but I’m glad this happened to him. I thought Lawler outclassed him and tonight is proof he doesn’t belong in there.

I don't care where (just far)
As much as I feel some doubt about the decision, can we say that Jones has the greatest chin ever? Look at his record dating back to the beginning.

I mean think of the guys he’s fought and the shots he absorbs with no visible wobbling and the other guys his opponents have KO’d. I mean he does move and roll with the shots too, it’s not like he just stand still eating them and smiling like Max Holloway, but still. Guys who KTFO other top 5 dudes barely dent Jones.

Maybe not greatest chin ever but it has to be up there.

The guy survived a game rampage for the first round. He’s got a good chin.

Askren has beaten a lot of guys before UFC. Let’s not exaggerate

I think it's more his defense than his chin. No one gets a clean shot on jones

When you look at the Robbie fight, even before he got dropped on his head, he looked lethargic and threw a wimpy punch. He’s one dimensional. I’m not saying he’s not good at what he does, but in the UFC, he was gifted a win and knocked out on what could be the biggest stage for him to showcase his skills.

I won’t be satsified till he has a proper fight though. He got that strange win over Lawler and now gets a fluke KO on him.

He’s got to learn that he can’t always rely on one thing. demian maia is a perfect example. When nate marquardt spun him around with a punch, he learned to strike. I’m not saying he’s the greatest striker but at least he learned to some stand up. Askren will be predictable if he doesn’t try his hand at learning some other art.

That's a weird try at being witty.

You probably thought Bisping beat Hamil, GSP beat Hendrix, or Machida beat Shogun the first time around. That is, if you even watched those fights.
You take yourself way too seriously and clearly can't tell when someone is being facetious. How you walk around with that stick up your ass I'll never understand, but you do you.

Although I did score that fight for GSP lol
