I thought Jones deserved it since it was an americana (hard to pull off) and he done it with an injured arm.

I would've given it to Cub for walking towards Do Bronx into submission.

On a BBJ Black Belt with the 205 Title on the line.

Vinny did deserve it. It probably would have made his year! But noooo.. give Bones more money, I`m sure NIKE only gave him a couple dozen mill after Vitor tapped.

I did think his sub was a little better, the flip-to-armbar with Pokrajac in mid air was fucking slick. I know initially I did think that the SOTN should have gone to Magalhaes, but FastKO and postman bring up good points, ones I have thought about.

Belfort is a bigger name, and probably all around better than "The Duke". Also, Belfort damn near became the first to truly beat Jon Jones with a crazy armbar of his own. Bones fought out of it, and ended up getting the Americana like it was nothing. I think JJ wanted to make a statement and try to damage Vitor's arm right back. (Vitor tapped to that sub hella quick)

The awards got a little messed up with this past event. But with the kind of bitching and mouth running Vinny is doing, I wouldn't be surprised if a loss gets him cut.

Personally, when I hear submission defense, the first two words that come to mind are Igor Pokrajac.

I agree with Vinny 150%.

Vinny's submission was a lot more technical and impressive.

Americana's aren't exactly finesse moves, you can easily muscle them. On top of that, Vitor was already pretty battered by the time the submission happened where as Vinny's was more of a flash submission.

Plus Jones is a super star and the last thing he needs is more money.

Vinny deserved it.

Vinny should have got it due to the submission itself being technically better. When KOTN gets discussed, nobody talks about these external factors like quality of opponent and circumstances leading to the finish, it's all about the quality of the move itself.

And yeah, the fact that it wouldn't have made an iota of difference to Jones' multi-million dollar bank account is another factor to consider.
