    That's what I keep seeing, but honestly, I think it's just that he's facing a step up in competition.

    Also, Thiago Santos kept repeatedly hitting with him leg kicks and that clearly damaged Jones. Now these fighters know Jon's biggest weakness.

    Reyes really took advantage of Jones not having a right hand. He beautifully dipped to his right and even evaded most of the eyepokes.
    A few times Jones surprised him with his stance switches and Reyes sometimes even noded his head to it like "ah I forgot, you got that punch in that stance"

    I dont think he is past his prime, fighters know very well him and still difficult to beat

    Jones’ style is getting predictable. He needs to change things up in the opening round
