The 9yr rule is still very relevant
Good piece, most outliers ITO longevity are guys fueled by TRT or busted for roids to prolong their career. OF course there are a couple outliers, but theyre outliers for a reason. In general this is a strong rule to top fighters.
how long is a piece of string?
I would say after 38.
Bisping says fuck you to that theory
It does depend on the weight class but Hendo is around 60 years old and going for the title.
HWs seem to be relevant going senile.
Kind of tough to nail a certain age group.
It's a trick question and all answers are wrong:
At every age fighters are unlikely to be in the top 5, since there can only be 5 fighters in the top 5 and there are hundreds and hundreds of fighters, hence even it their prime it's unlikely to be in the top 5 of their division.
Looks like u didnt read the article (not surprising).
Bisping started fighting top fighters in 2007. Hes at year 9 right now. Theres a reason the Luke fight is one of the biggest upsets ever and Bisping could lose his next fight and start a losing streak.
Time will tell.
Dad body is coming in.
randy and hendo
IT really depends on the fighter. Chuck was a stud at like 37
Also, see Hendo for old man success and Randy Couture
THen look at young figthers like Jon Jones, or Conor McGregor or Aldo
Then you have mid aged fighters like Lawler, etc,
now, you be the judge
Before age 12
Very unlikely to be top 5 age 0-25
Very unlikely to be top 5 age 40+
He said Top 5. Even if Henderson won the title, he still wouldn't be one of the five best fighters in the division. He'd just be a guy that capitalized off of a gifted title shot.
I'm still all for it.
It would be hilarious if he landed a bomb again.
Circle left Count, circle left!
