Yes Irish, I actually live in the same place where Dana White grew up, but I was referring to the specific Man who was responsible for him fleeing to Las Vegas and you come to find out that 3 years ago however long it was when he was caught by the Marshals, with well over $1 ,million in cash, and less than 5 miles from Dana's Beach House in California  how did a man who was on the run for 15+ years get all of the money in cash? It just got me wondering.

I have 3 times and I'm not biased against either Fighter, however after reading the rules of which they were fighting under, Jones definitely won. I'd say at least 1/2 of the straight shots that appeared to hit Jon, in reality, his defense is impeccable. I wasn't aware that if the judges under the old rules, if they thought that the strikes were even, they would next go to exactly what Jon Jones did 90% of the time, not so much Octagon Control, however he had Reyes constantly fighting going backwards and I don't agree with the fact that they were using the old rules, as any normal fan can see, Reyes has I believe 7 KO's backing up, most recently Chris Weidman.
