I have read a lot of people saying he is not in his "physical prime" this is incorrect he is in his "physical prime" as noted that he has made LHW without nearly killing himself , if he wasn't in his physical prime he wouldn't be able to do that. Also it appears he is just hitting his prime but it may decline very quick in the next 2-3 years.

He got into MMA relatively late for his age so he doesn't have the same wear and tear that many fighters his age have. Either way though, if Jones wins fully expect his haters to claim he's way out of his prime and had no business fighting for the title.

Physically he has looked bigger, stronger and leaner in every consecutive UFC fight.

And there's no question he's getting better when it comes to technique.

Scary to think of the beast he would be if this is not his prime

But we have to remember that during his "prime," he (probably) wouldn't have the skill set he does now

Past his physical prime, probably.


Mma prime, hes still young to the sport and his skills, and fight IQ are Likely to improve.

Btw its scary to think how good he could have been if he started training in his physical prime, same goes for lesnar.

DC has a better diet now and trains really hard. His technique is ever improving. People don't really think about it - he's been fighting professionally for only 5 years now.

Why wouldn't he be able to? Weight cutting gets harder as you get older but at 35 he most likely just isn't in his physical prime he probably was when he was like 25 to 30 even though he now probably trains better than a few years ago.

When JJ tears this man's soul apart (the face-off humiliation was a foretelling), Jones haters will be saying Cormier is yet another fighter with bum knees and way past his prime and ask, with a straight face, "when is Jones gonna fight someone his own size or not over the hill?" Reach advantage, eye pokes, cocky, arrogant, etc........

And stiiiiiiillll! Champion and GOAT.
