    He’s had a few decent wins sprinkled in post title, but that’s JDS on his way to the title, he was a monster. Lean, pre usada, quick.

    There are multiple factors that may have affected his performance,

    His age, PTSD after those Cain fights, That battle against Stipe was the point when he lost all beliefs on himself, Then losing against an Overeem (In hindsight Overeem had one of the best spell of his career at that time, but remember if he had lost that fight then he would have been cut from UFC) didn't help either.

    Cain turned the octagon into a horcrux after those beatings he put on JDS.

    If JDS hadn't of taken that 3rd fight with Cain, he might have not went down hill so badly.

    Those took a lot out of Cain as well. JDS has much more longevity than Cain.

    Junior's UFC debut was 12 years ago.

    Time waits for no man. JDS is considered old by fight mileage standards.
    Is normal.

    Looks like he’s just brought in to make other fighters look good at this point unfortunately.

    JDS hasn't looked good since he dumped his mom/wife and started hooking up with hot chicks

    He was a bad bad man in his prime but he’s a shell of his former self. He lost a lot of speed and just was never the same after those Cain fights.

    Agreed. He used to be a monster, but time and damage accumulation take their toll on everyone.

    He looked bad against Blaydes, looking really tentative and gunshy.

    Junior Dos Santoast.

    Now that he is past his prime and a lot slower his technical deficiencies show more and more in each fight.

    Or maybe it’s karma for leaving his ex who was there for him when he was nobody, as soon as he got money and could get a hotter girl lol

    The damage stated to accumulate for sure, he still had something in the tank after Cain 3, but the defensive holes in his boxing really started coming out.
