The narrative lately is that Jon is "slowing down." And sure maybe he has a tad bit. It's only natural after 10+ years in the game. Only natural you aren't as light on your feet in your 30s as you were in your early 20s. I'm not really buying the narrative personally. Yes Jon does fight much more conservatively nowadays. Most of us fell in love with with Jon because of his unpredictable, brutal, yet beautiful display of viciousness he showed early in his career. Early on it seemed that he was freestyling and doing whatever move came to his imagination. Nowadays I feel he is much more cerebral and disciplined. He's also much better defensively. Case in point his fight against Gus. I don't see how people weren't impressed. The claimed B.S. that Gus was washed up but there is no evidence of this. The truth was Jon and his camp came in with the perfect gameplan to completely nullify and shut Gus down. Some people like to act like steroids knocked DC the fuck out but even HE kn ok knows that Jon whooped him twice.
