Jones was firing the jab early. Teixeira was going to the body. Glover was letting his hands go but he was consistently coming up short or missing too high or wide.

Charlie Brenneman still gets bashed on Twitter for telling Jon Jones to pay his rent. But the UFC welterweight doesn't at all regret what he said.
If anything, it's gotten him more attention, and that's a welcome thing in the fight business.
"We're in the media when we're coming up, and when we don't have a fight, we're not in the media," Brenneman told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "To me, it's amusing to be back in the spotlight because it has been a while."
