    a random guy with only 12 fights clearly out struck him and stuffed all his takedowns. I know Jon has the greatest resume ever, but without the gas he's slowed down ALOT.
    His weakness in his striking and wrestling have become more clear. His cardio is still there, and won those later rounds, but he's not as dominate as he was 5 years ago

    Lol! So much crying and reaching on this forum this morning, I love it.

    Undefeated in the cage, but "was he ever that good". Mean while their favorite fighters have been KO'd and slept multiple times.

    Keep up the tears, they taste delicious

    Lol

    Jones must be the most proven fighter ever against every type of style and skill set. Younger UFC champion ever and a highlight machine in his younger years.

    If this proves something is that the competition is working hard trying to exploit Jon Jones weaknesses and that Reyes is a tremendous fighter and there was a doubt with those finishes and record?

    I thought he had incredible potential for goat, but the continuous PED controversies and subsequent reduction in his performance thereafter make him more of an enigma than an all time great imo.

    Oh get fucked lmao

    Reyes should've gotten the win, but the reason why it's so impressive is because of how good Jones is

    He's gone from a savage wrestler/G n P specialist to a non aggressive jack of all trades who does some nice bobbing and weaving.

    No idea what happened to his aggression.

    Yes, obviously. And I’m not even a fan. Dude went through Shogun, Machida, Rashad, Rampage, Vitor, Gus, Cormier.
    Cmon, man.

    2003 - 2005 Fedor is the greatest HW fighter ever seen in MMA.
    2011 - 2013 Jones is the greatest LHW fighter ever seen in MMA.
    2006 - 2008 Silva is the greatest MW fighter ever seen in MMA.
    2005 - 2007 St. Pierre is the greatest WW fighter ever seen in MMA.

    Yes he was that good. And I'm no fan at all.
