    His physique looks like old man cut though. Like old BJ at FW. His physique is just lacking that oomph that you know a pro athlete should have. There's something weak about it; you can sense that it's not intimidating. That's not good.

    Looks like he hasn't aged at all.

    Yeah, if you watch the actual weigh in, he looked aged. Like when you see those old dudes that you know used to be athletic at one point.

    Whatever, war Spider Silva.

    Big Silva fan. But i agree. He was much more thick back in his prime.

    Yeah it's nothing I can point out specifically. It's probably small things like muscle ratios and maybe even different posture and skin differences that old men get that you instinctually pick up on, that this guy is weak, fragile, and slow.

    You can't pick out what it is specifically, but he looks structurally stronger and faster there. I don't think it's any one thing specifically. It's a combination of things that you're hardwired genetically to pick up on like posture, skin differences, water retention, muscle ratios, all kinds of stuff that lets you know if someone is dangerous or not.

    I will be very surprised; happy, but surprised, if Anderson wins.

    Who do you think would win? 50+ year old legends allowed every performance enhancing drug that exists in unlimited quantities, or under 40 year current greats fighting naturally? IMO it deserves its own thread.

    That's fair, there is a difference of course, I just don't think it's super noticeable, it takes a strong squint to see, other than his pecks really imo..

    To say he's 45 he looks great, bunch of his younger opponents like Chael, Chris Leben etc look a lot worse I think than they did when they fought him...

    Yoel Romero obviously makes everyone look shit though.
