    What Tiger Woods has done is inspirational. Could a complete turnaround and comeback happen in MMA as well after 11+ years?

    Could a former man ever come back after losing to a little girl?

    Arlovski came close to doing it, so yeah I'd say it's possible.

    It's possible but depends on how early you start. Without looking at literal years, but rather iterations, I think Vitor would be a MMA contender for that.

    Huge splash at 17/18 took a couple of knocks, came back and took the LHW title, went away again and challenged Jon Jones for the LHW title again (albeit on short notice).

    Brock could. It would be easier for a heavyweight do it, since strength last longer than agility or speed does. An old man that throws hard fist is more likely to beat a young man in a fight than an old man is wrestling a younger man

    I've been thinking about this a lot..especially in the modern era..I can't think of one fighter that was a champ..lost it in the cage and came back to get their title..seems as though once they lose, they never get it back.
