does this say anything about the skills of a fighter?
Shows more of what their style is and who they fought.
Fighters whose style relies mostly on quick reflexes and pure athleticism tend to end up being dominated once too far past their prime because they are trying to fight as if they still had their prime reflexes. Mosley and RJJ are two of the best examples of this.
Those who have great fundamentals tend to avoid be dominated provided they don't on for way too long. Morales, of course, had solid fundamentals but he fought guys such as Garcia and Pac, who are poison for older, slower oponents.
