    Hope we see a new and improved JDS that doesn't run straight backwards in the cage every time he's pressured or give up the leverage battle.

    Exactly. He was always one dimensional but he is so good at boxing & TDD it doesn't matter most of the time when he fights. He just hasn't quite looked like his old self in his last two fights because he has been fighting Cain and Stipe. Two guys that can expose him.

    Maybe he will start mixing it up more and become a long term champ but there is only so far he can go just trying to knock everyone out like his "old self".

    Sadly hes gone forever

    The two Cain beatdowns + the Stipe war on top of that = Cigano gone forever

    Sadly I think that was Junior at his apex. Not saying he's done by a long shot, seeing how he is in the HW division lol. But man the speed and power that guy possessed was something to behold. One of the most devastating power punchers I have ever seen. Werdum is lucky the cigano uppercut from hell didn't end his career....or his life :eek:

    I love JDS but that guy has aged so much since the Cain beatings it's amazing. He was a walking zombie in those last 2 fights, he had every chance to change his approach in the 3rd fight and it was even worse. Unfortunately you can't teach an old dog new tricks sometimes

    Even Arlovski is a title contender in 2015,but people are %100 sure 31 years old JDS is done ? Lol

    I'm not saying he is as good as he was 3 years ago,but considering we are talking about HW anything is a possibility

    This. Him taking a lot of damage isn't gonna help, but maybe he'll focus more on not getting hit.

    I wouldn't say he's done but he needs to regain that confidence he had when he was smashing everyone in the UFC before the 2nd Cain fight. Of course his body has taken a massive amount of damage since then but like Arlovski it is possible to regain that old form, at least partially.

    He looked tentative as fuck in the Stipe fight and I actually think he lost but it was close.
