Id say right now chad mendes is a good example of a fighter hitting his prime. Watch old fights of him he looks completely different. He looks like a grown ass man now and he took apart guida. Jacare is another example. Phone Post

Robbie Lawler seems like a new man. Here's hoping he finds consistency this time, and doesn't end up like Ellenberger. Phone Post 3.0

I think rory is going to regress before he gets better. Still really young. Not a finisher yet and won't be as long as he trains at tri star... Phone Post

Rampage was in his prime when he fought hendo. I don't even know when I would consider Tito at his best. Vs griffin 1? Phone Post

He was a finisher before his last two fights, but I agree that he's been fighting safe, even in the B.J. fight where he easily could've finished it in Round 2.

All of the shit-talk that's been lobbed towards Greg Jackson should've been towards TriStar this whole time.

Jackson and Winklejohn: Cub Swanson, Jon Jones, Brian Stann, Travis Browne, Carlos Condit...all finishers

TriStar: GSP, Carmont, Rory, Ricci...all decisionaters lately.

I disagree. I don't think Mendes is hitting his prime at all. I think he has finally developed all the skills necessary to be champion. The scary thing is I don't think we will see Mendes in his prime for a couple years. The kid will be a monster soon. Phone Post

Yep, but those canucks do all have a mean jab and great lateral movement. I think if they start losing a few of those decisions they will evolve into finishers.
