    I think he’ll get back to it. But to be honest he’s had a shit ton of wars recently. A rest isn’t a bad idea

    Jones just doesn't go for broke.
    No aggressiveness.
    His day will come just like the rest.

    He’s a point fighter now.

    Someone needs to get to him mentally so he takes more risks and either finishes or gets finished

    He doesnt really take the same risks as he did before, just happy to pick people apart, but is getting better at that

    Seems like GSP syndrome

    When he full commits to stuff, he still has the explosion, just doesnt do it much

    He never went away. Jon was young, hungry and a puzzle to be solved, there were no answers. 10 years of dominance will give any opponent enough material to study and train to exploit the weaknesses of his game, that's why dominant champs are impressive. Now everyone knows what he wants to do in a fight and train accordingly. Of course he won't look as dominant.

    They should only give him coke for finishes.

    With the picos rapidly fading, Jon will lose in 2020.

    A lot of fighters after reaching the top, they play it safe the rest of their career. Also the competition get's better and you can't afford to get flashy anymore.

    For real bro

    Jon is the best fighter ever

    Ander Silva was something else though, thats why everyone loved him. Flashy, risk taker.

    Fedor is a goat too, regardless of what yall bum asses say. The dude was a killer, and had insane striking/ takedowns setups, especially for a HW

    Yep....

    I dont see the creativity, aggressiveness and willingness to make a statement anymore either.

    Its been a decade doing it. Dude is rich as fuck already.
    Hard to expect anyone to keep the same mindset at this point.

    Old Jon Jones was before drug testing
    And then he was hiding under cages to avoid it
    Then he failed a dozen tests

    It used to be easy to bet on Jones. Now his ability just isn't on that level anymore. You can see it even in fights where he's dominating, like against Smith. I think he should consider retiring.

    Or maybe that stringent testing is actually having a effect..?

    Maybe. Why was the second fight with Gus so decisive if he’s declining?
