That's true and it's probably why he stuck around despite his poor record at the time. It's good that he's bringing it all together because of that fact. I like his in your face style. Him not allowing Mein to have any space when they fought was fun to watch and you could tell it was overwhelming Jordan a little. I hope he continues to grow as a fighter.
I like that mentality he has now cdtcpl, I think more guys should think like that. It may not always be the best idea if you want to win, but I could imagine some guys having more success in the UFC with that mind set. It's sad to see some talented guys struggle to let it all out inside the octagon.
I only brought up history because its funny to see a guy that got beat by Seth Baczynski and have a 1-4 slump (though he did win a few before that in the UFC) come so far in the UFC. It's actually quite refreshing to see too.
