    I never noticed this feature but it's a neat concept. I like that they include it since wear and tear matters so much in MMA.

    I thought I would list some popular fighter's combat age and list some links, they seem pretty accurate to me in that the fighters that have fought much longer and/or taken lots of damage have a much wider gap between their combat age and their actual age.

    Fedor combat age 55 real age 43

    Stipe combat age 42 real age 37
    http://www.fightmatrix.com/fighter-profile/Stipe+Miocic/32099/

    DC combat age 45 real age 40

    Jones combat age 38 real age 32

    Wanderlei combat age 65 real age 43

    Sometimes when I review fightmatrix.com I think its brilliant, other times I think its totally asinine. Thanks for posting, definitely will check more into this. I would say off the top, there is no definitive way to create a fighters combat age (but what do I know). Interesting nonetheless.

    How much damage a guy has taken definitely impacts his ability to take shots.

    Is every fighter owning a "combat age" greater than their actual age?

    Edit: I checked Greg Hardy, and he's younger so I guess not.

    I'm surprised Khabib is considered four years older, since he seems to have taken relatively little damage in his career to-date.

    Neat concept though. I'd love to study how they quantified it.

    I tried to find Sean Salmon's and Sakuraba's. It looks they only have it for active fighters.

    I think for Khabib it's due to how long he's been training/fighting rather than damage taken/injuries cause I agree he hasn't had many of either of those. That's interesting that they can have a combat age younger than their real age. Their formula for combat age would be interesting to see.
