    Stipe 35
    Cormier 39
    Whittaker 27
    Woodley 35
    Ferg 34
    Max 26
    TJ 32
    MM 31

    Average 32, but in general some are old and won't have a bigger legacy judging on how often they fight.

    In Bellator:

    Bader 34
    Carvalho 31
    Lima 30
    Primus 32
    Freire 30
    Caldwell 30

    So similar

    Good for Max. I feel like there are often guys around 26 that could win it they just haven't been able to do enough to prove they deserve the title shot yet at that age.

    Because people don't do MMA in college.

    They end their athletic career and then pick up MMA.

    And Fedor fans want to tell me "Fedor was out of his prime" at 32 years of age. LOL

    The guy is 2-4 in a cage (with a very suspicious 2nd win). He is a pioneer, and not the GOAT. LOL

    But Fedor is the GOAT. The problem is the champs are not so good right now
