He was trying. He clipped him pretty good, but not RIDICULOUSLY hard. Smith didn't take the easy path out as that could have been a disqualifying strike if Smith couldn't continue so good on him.

    As much as Jones dominated, it also felt like Smith held back and never let loose in any way. Clearly that's part of the Jones dominance, but it also reaches a point where there is no chance you are winning otherwise and have to take risks.
    people were making it sound like a plain as day violation where jones was trying to really hurt him. i was hoping it was more in line with dudes still not being used to the rules or being in transition or something

    Well, it was "plain as day" in the sense that yes, Smith was grounded when it hit. But its not like he was grounded for an extended period and Jones just got frustrated and smashed him with a knee. He transitioned between grounded and not grounded several times in a short period.

    Smith was getting up, but still had his hand clearly on the mat and Jones threw the knee. Maybe he was trying to knee him before he got to his feet...I don't know, but it was clearly illegal. Smith could've taken a DQ win. I think it was more heat of the moment, oh shit I can't do that, type of a thing personally.
