Jon Jones is not evolving anymore
I was thinking in the Jones/Gus staredown and what Gus should be doing when not in training.
If i was him, i'd be training, sleeping or when not doing any of those, i'd be watching Jon Jones full career fight videos, over and over again.
I'd come to this point, where i'm facing my opponent (me imagining i'm Gus) and i can visualize what he is gonna do in the ring. And i know it all and i own in his game.
Why? Because in the last 4/5 fights Jon Jones hasn't shown anything new.
Sure he's great and his game is very intelligent/effective,
but it's been the same since a while now.
I think that Jon Jones isn't evolving anymore.
He just coasted at a very high level and i can't see him going any higher than this...
