That's not unusual in MMA. Biologically we may hit our peak in our mid-twenties, but to really get good at all the skills you need for well roundedness takes longer. There are only so many hours in a day.

And MW is still arguably the most stacked division.

Do the people honestly believe heavier fighters peak in their thirties? You realize Cain, JDS, Fedor, Nog, Crocop, Barnett, every fucking top HW ever had already reached the top since their twenties (leave Couture out of this assholes, he started at 33).

The fact is there has been a drought in the talent pool and the old HWs are still better than the new talent despite the aging process.

30 is old? lol. Then one can say 20 is old if that 20 yr old didn't take care of his body. Its all a matter of how you took care of your body and how much wear was put on it. Age doesn't mean much.
