    He's just a boring points grinder now edges out tight decisions at best. Days of domination and looking special are gone.

    Indeed you’re right. He looks transcendent. That’s a great point TS.

    He hasn't been great since 2012 / 2013. That's when Jon left his Prime.

    He was still good enough to beat DC, but it was under influence, and he wasn't the same anymore technically.

    You are not giving his opponents any credit. They study him and make a game plan to exploit his weaknesses, he has had a target on his back for nearly a decade. He was going to get figured out sooner or later.

    its the toe, his wrestling has gone to shit since that toe injury, and he is second guessing himself everytime he fights

    50-45 GSP who didn't finish doesn't look so bad now after seeing other champs do enough to barely win a decision.

    The intimidation factor is gone. Jon looks human now. Only Father Time is undefeated forever

    Don't see him winning at HW, have no idea why he is talking about going up. Think Blaydes, Stipe, Ngannou and a HW DC all get him. Wouldn't be surprised if Overeem gives him trouble.

    Jones was able to beat 3 generations of fighters, no one has done that. not GSP, not mighty mouse, not fedor, not Anderson. Jones doesn't look as great as he used to is because fighters are improving.

    His boxing looks worse than ever, almost completely no existent just the occasional punch. mostly uses his hands to fend off attacks. Overall he looks weak and defensive and no longer than dangerous killer he used to be.

    Jones went pretty far downhill from the fighter that he was before. The Jon Jones that fought DC the first time was a beast. This one just coasts and barely throws anything. He just sticks his hand out and runs whenever there is a brawl.

    Other then his destruction of Shogun has he ever looked impressive?? Just because he wins 50-45 at times doesn’t mean he dominates his opponents.

    Jones has a lot of miles on those tires and it showed.
