    The fighters he’s beating now are much better than the fighters he was beating in 2011-2012. The Jon Jones of today would still finish those guys.

    when he was on ALL the steroids, instead of just " pulsing " like he is now.

    As long as he's allowed to freely juice, he will always be in his prime.

    He probably wouldn't finish them now since he's off roids.

    All those guys were far less dynamic and more one dimensional than the guys of 2020. DC would handily defeat all of those guys as well as Reyes. The resumes they’ve accumulated from 05-10 doesn’t mean they can beat the best fighters of 2020

    Some time in between the steroids and the blow. I'm thinking money bags Jones was probably the best .

    It almost seems like JJ is the only cheater, when reading these posts.

    Of course Yoel Romero, GSP and many others are 100% god-fearing natties compared to Jon Jones.

    Majority of votes are for the past. Looks about right.

    Back when drug testers could be evaded by hiding out under the cage for a few hours.

    Past is the correct answer. It's pretty tough to have that same fire and motivation after so many years on top, not to mention the physical toll on the body of fighting the best guys in the world for over a decade.

    With that said, I expect there are still some spectacular performances from him to come in the future. Perhaps the challenge of moving up to HW will light that fire in him again.
