    The new school is older than the old school.

    Or is the old school actually new school? Or is the new school just the new old school?

    That Ngannou fights so well for being a senior citizen. It's no wonder his endurance is a problem. ;)

    I think it's just a case of them beginning their professional fighting career later than the already well established vets. Randy Couture entered into his fight life in the UFC relatively late so he was dominant while he was older than most of his peers. Seems to be the same deal with the new breed.

    MMA defies age. Randy really proved it from UFC 43 on
