Any predictions? Jones is fairly heavily favored, but what is Cormier's best plan?

Anyone catch it? I only saw the news highlights. Pretty much what everyone expected, most likely.

Sadly everything went exactly as expected.

A few observations (haven't followed these guys for a long time) [sorry for SPOILERS]:

- hard to see why DC is considered so great when you put him against Jones here
- why didn't Jones use more long jabs?
- looks like Jones' plan was use punches and low kicks and save the surprise blow?
- who was winning on the scorecards before the end?
