When you have been in the game for as long as Joe has,if you are not careful the game may pass you by. Joe maybe going through a rough losing patch but he is one of the best fighters in MMA history. The two defeats to  Figueiredo crashed his confidence,maybe he under estimated the current flyweight champion.If you analyze that loss in the first bout with Fig he departed from the quick attack style and was pretty hesitant to go on the offensive. The second one bout was about a man beaten mentally before the fight getting crashed by the Champ who was on top of his game.
