    A week or so before the fight with Reyes, I asked the question:

    Is Jon Jones better or worse than he seems?

    I was torn apart by Sherdoggers and Jones nutriders.

    But it seems like my worries were founded. Here we have yet ANOTHER close bout against a worthy opponent.

    I think the answer to my question is both better and worse.

    Jones is better than he seems. He is highly skilled and methodical. He knew to push the pace against Reyes because he would have been rewarded for it based on Texas scoring - he might have even requested a Houston fight. He does all the little things required to win.

    But he's also fading physically. He has definitely left his athletic prime.

    The question is, how much time does he have left? Stay tuned

    No man can reign forever. But noone has done what Jones has done. Literally noone.


    I want you to think about the fact that the guy has not been decisively beaten or finished in 10 years of fighting the best the world has to offer.

    That said, he's been in wars and has been fighting for over a decade. Jones seems bored, and seems to be in a different state of mind these days.

    It's convenient you ignore the years he wasn't fighting for various suspensions in "10 years of fighting" is actually like 7.
