Can Dominic able to take the powerful eye poke of Jon Jones .jon Jones is very well rounded eye poke fighter .in order to beat Jon he should learn how to break Jon fingers
just shave yourself bald please dominick this isn't working for you
The Zignum Mezcal Anejo is actually quite good. A nice after dinner drink that is great neat. Regarding this talk Dom is just an awesome dude. I wish all the best for him. He's going to need it against JBJ. I'm thinking he'll pull off the miracle and win via decision. That or maybe just maybe a 4th round TKO.
Total good dude with great talent But will it be enough for Jones A don’t no man? Good luck good health both dudes
How come no matter where they are having the PPV, these media lunches are always at this same spot? Anyone know where this is?
We always list the location in the description …Hinoki & the Bird in Century City, CA. The restaurant is right around the corner from FOX Sports, so I believe that's why it was initially chosen. If you look back at the initial luncheons, the plant had barely started growing: http://mmaheat.com/topic/hinoki-and-the-bird
Dominick sounds like a legit good guy , that’s going to piss Jon off. Jones is going to try and end his career , he better be ready for that.
That left hand might just hit.
Reyes is one of the best LHW contenders to face jon, but he doesn't get it done. I got Bones round 3, or 4 via submission or tko. Reyes saying things like "worst case scenario i lose to jon jones" doesn't sound like BulletProof confidence to me, and fighting guy's like jj, DC. You have to have a winning mentality a strong ironclad will to win. I just don't see it in Reyes to best JJ. Great athlete tho i like him good hands, durable, Hes a problem Just not ready for jj yet
Jones wont be prepared for Doms speed, athleticism and movement combined with his size. Hes never fought someone this big and athletic who can kick and punch well moving forward, backward and laterally. Similar to a LHW Dom Cruz. Jones has gotten very slow the more weight hes put on. Takedowns will not come easy either. I doubt Jones ever gets him down.
OSP was that big and Athletic
@Trevaughn Sumrall Youre high. What did Reyes do to OSP? Oh yeah, knocked his ass out in the 3rd round. OSP is not even close to Dominick Reyes.
I'm getting some serious stand back before I ankle pick you vibes with this one.
and jon is gonna kill him
I don’t know what it means and I hope it doesn’t sound weird but I had a dream that Jones was bitting this guy while he had him in a choke hold
