    His win over Reyes this weekend is the second contested decision in a row for Jones. He was also nearly disqualified after a bad foul against Anthony Smith in a decision win three fights ago.

    No.

    He's off the juice, and his weaker. His wrestling hasn't looked elite in years. His striking is average at best, outside of a headlock vs. Cormier, I can't recall 1 shot power from him. Reyes won that fight 3-2, IMO. It was close and I have no issues with Jones winning it because he clearly won 4-5, maybe 2...but I think at this point, he loses very soon. If he tries to stand and bang with Izzy when they do fight, Izzy is going to TKO him.
