    He's still looking good out there. Do you think most people are aware of his age?

    Werdum will be 37 in June. There's quite a few older guys still competing at the highest level.

    Munoz is fighting tomorrow and he's 36. He's a few months older than Machida.

    For whatever reason I looked up Nobutatsu Suzuki (11-1), Askren's likely next opponent. I thought he'd be 23-24, he is 36.

    I just saw Stipe will be 32 this year. I thought he was about 28.

    The point of a forum is to discuss shit. If you have nothing to contribute don't post.

    Personally i find it strange that so many fighters have success into there mid to late 30's in mma. It's not like that in many sports.

    Machida is aging in reverse. He looks younger every time I see him. Thick, Solid, Tight.

    He's not showing signs of it yet. Given that he absorbs almost no punishment in his fights, I can't say that is too surprising.

    It is really hard to believe Lyoto's age sometimes. He has taken so little damage throughout his career.

    Yep. Good defense will increase any fighter's longevity by a substantial extent. Mayweather's been boxing for well over 10 years now and speaks clear as day.

    He spars hard though. More so than a lot of guys. No headgear. Lots of contact. Anderson was also into that style of sparring.
