    Yeah but they can't because any more protection from fingers would limit grappling

    The problem is a lot of these guys stick their fingers out when fight. Jones had a reaction of throwing his arm to the face of other fighters.

    Even if the gloves never change how hard is it not to eye poke?

    Actually very. I mean, given enough time.

    Fights are chaos, both guys are trying to be where the other guy doesn't expect them to be.

    That was part of Jon's tactics. And he got away with it...a lot.
