He's been in too many battles; his body is worn out. He hasn't looked the same since the Penn fight, imo before that that was the best he's looked.

Brain damage. The cheese slid off his cracker; that cage interview after the fight made it permanent and undeniable.

Somewhere along the way, he decided that he was a boxer.

Ever since he trained with Oscar de la Hoya he thought he was Oscar de la Hoya.

When you fight 'for the fans', like Leonard Garcia, you are guaranteed a longer tenure of employment than your record warrants.
pretty much this. the look of satisfaction that he had on his face after the melendez fight said it all. he doesn't care about winning or losing anymore. he cares about putting on a good fight. people may hate the, "caution to the wind" approach, but it puts asses in seats, and the ufc loves it.

His fights with Karo and Nick where two of the best ever and by far his best fights.

I just meant i wish that he realized he is more exciting as a grappler then a sloppy brawler
