I think that mindset hurt Fedor towards the end of his career though and I think it's been a detriment more often then not for Wandy in the last few years when he still displays it.
I think Jones is very different than Fedor and Wandy in terms of little fear. Fedor and Wandy moved forward got tagged and kept coming. I think the damage, especially for Wandy has added up over the years.
For Jones, he can move forward with striking and be out of harms way pretty quickly, given his reach, so is not taking much if any damage.
