    It's all about his dance partner.

    As long as he isn't facing a pressure wrestler he might be in his prime.

    He's not past his prime. He's simply not that good.

    If he's that good, why does he keep losing?

    He said he’s back to his previous style and ways of training, so I’d like to actually see what happens in his next 1-2 fights before making that judgement

    I don’t think he’s past his prime. I think fighters have caught up and are game planning better.

    That's not the point.

    You said, and I quote,

    "He's not that good."

    Obviously he is no slouch, to win TWO titles.

    TS asked if Pettis is in his prime. He is, he's only 31. I point out he's not that good, and hence he doesn't have the title.

    What do you want from me?
