    I get fighters are allowed to improve but,

    Didn’t he have comically bad gassing problems before? He used to put his hands by his knees. Dude got destroyed by Pat Cummings and now he’s a contender on a 4 fight streak with good cardio.

    He hardly got destroyed. All of those losses are decisions.

    Styles make fights; he was always decent but has a weakness for strong wrestlers. Also, a note for any desperate Gustaffson fans: a 4 fight win streak over journeymen still doesn't make Jan a quality win. Sorry.

    Beating Krylov makes you a contender?

    He hasn't beaten a massive list of Killers and LHW is fairly thin. Jan is a decent LHW in today's UFC. Circs 2005-11 he isn't top 10 maybe top 15. Nice subtle Roid accusation though. Did Jan bang your wife or something?

    Well he looked really good when he crushed Latifi. And that was back in 2014. So he has performed well in the past. But he's been a bit irregular, I'll give you that ts

    205 sucks and isn’t deep. Guys got older, he got a little better. He looked good against Latifi a while ago. His hands looked good against Gus too. I wouldn’t say he has dramatically improved though.

    I saw that event in Hamburg with my son, that was a great night. And yes, Jan looked sharp on the feet

    I don't think his cardio is actually that much better, I just think he's better at managing his limited gas tank

    He doesn't throw full power all the time anymore, he picks his spots better etc.

    And he was never a bad fighter before, he could just only go for 5 minutes of action and he would blow it out in the first

    Now he can go for like 8 minutes and spreads it out across the fight
