    Wrong gameplan from Santos. Fighting Jon's fight. Needs to start winging hooks and right hands.

    Round 1 Santos 10-9

    Consistent kicks to the calf from Santos, then he knocks Jones mouthpiece out, and a few clean counters up top, wins the first for Santos.

    Round 1 Santos 10-9
    Round 2 Santos 10-9

    Santos hurts himself with a kick, Jones jumps on him, he tags Jones, and hurts him, Jones backs off, Santos with headkick, its blocked, kick to stomach from Santos, Santos gets dropped from a Jones kick, hops right back up, I think his leg gave out, a few shots to the body and head from Santos. His leg seems recovered now.

    I'd like to see him fight at heavyweight as well but there is no need for a permanent move away from light-heavy since the heavyweight division basically has only 2-3 potential fights for him with Cormier,Miocic and Ngannou, light-heavyweight maybe not be that strong currently it does have at least 2 up and comers in Walker and Rasic who can contend in coming years

    True in theory but I don't like bouncing and forth back in weight. Divisions should wait for nobody as **** as they may be.

    Don't know if Jones just isn't taking the likes of Santos and Smith seriously or has regressed but if he fought this at HW - Ngannou or Miocic could well plank him. Thinking about an Ngannou fight especially considering his wild shots, angles and power.

    Round 3 Jones 10-9

    Santos lands kick to the body, then a one two up top, sends Jones backward, he slips away and out of danger, wheelkick misses by a hair from Jones, Jones working the calf, Santos kicks the calf, and a body shot, the knot on Jones thigh is brutal, backfist from Jones misses, inside leg kick from Santos, then a body shot from both. Superman punch from Jones, partially deflected. Santos kicks him again, hurts his own leg.
