I don't think that means he is on the decline, he is just fighting top competition and finding out that he is not really as elite as everyone had thought. That is kind of like saying that Frankie Edgar is on the decline after losing three straight (his three straight were close decisions to the number one fighter in there division). A fighter is one the decline when he starts losing to guys that shouldn't be in the same cage as them (like when Chuck lost to Jardine or Franklin recently lost to Cung Le).
