Good start by Tiago. He's hurt his legs early and looks dangerous in every exchange. Jon needs to get out of striking range and either clinch or take it down.

Strange fight so far. Jones is fighting very passively and could be behind 2-0. Santos' knee is a worry though. That could well be an ACL the way the knee is buckling.

Santos still kicking with his left leg. What an animal.
If it is an ACL, that's the leg you want to be kicking with. Planting on that leg is where there's trouble.

Close fight, but probably the right outcome. That's two fight in a row where Jones hasn't looked great.

True. He threw both kicks so still impressive.

Jesus the one judge gave it 48-47 to Santos that's nuts. Jones came sooo close to losing
The numbers in rd 2 were close even though it was clearly Jones rd. Who knows what the judges are watching during the fight.

They were sucked in by the power of Santos punches in the 2nd. I would have had it 49-46 Jones yet Santos probably had the more effective punches.
