The guy will never be top dog again.
So then why did you post the thread if you already made up your mind?
He needs to find a balance between being a aggressive fighter and counter striking.
Before he lost he was a super aggressive fighter that overwhelmed fighters, now he's swung completely in the other direction and looks like a pure counter striker and IMO the style/gameplan W/E is not the most effective strategy for him.
I think he would do better if instead of jumping in to stand and banging or sitting back and countering he takes calculated risks but at some point he needs to put the pressure on fighters that's what he's good at, he needs to pull the trigger if he wants to win.
