Anthony Smith was beaten soundly by reigning UFC light heavyweight champion and pound-for-pound No. 1 Jon Jones at UFC 235, but ‘Bones’ has hardly looked impressive in follow-up fights against Thiago Santos and Dominick Reyes.

I wonder how many ridiculous talents MMA has lost just because they're too smart to have the typical, delusional mindset fighters like Smith have.
