    Considering how terrible most HW ground games are, he'll probably be able to.

    Fine with me. One of the few heavyweight fighters that doesn't gas in a minute

    Russians have always been known for their smart training and recovery programs. Wouldn't surprise me if he could pull it off, Severn style. I don't see him doing well in the UFC going forward though.

    The dude has been fighting professional since 1996, fought 73 times and is still ranked at 43 years old. Also 3rd fight this year.

    He is a fucking boss.

    I guess the career as a chef will have to continue to wait.

    Oleinik is probably my favorite HW. Dude just fights so often, zero BS, incredible ground skills, and is like this slow-plodding heavy hitting zombie on the feet.

    He is awesome, I used to watch him a long time ago when he was a MW, he was a MW most of his career. He can fight until he is 50, I believe him, especially at HW where the guys are also all old and very slow too. His submissions are amazing, and has such a variety, if he gets anyone down he can tap them out.

    He was obviously joking with the 7-10 year comment. Funny that they go ahead and make a serious headline out of it. Here's the full quote:

    “Not too much longer, maybe 7-10 more years. Maybe one year, maybe five years no one knows. If I feel good, I am ready to fight. I’m sparring in the gym with young guys and big names from UFC, Bellator, I feel good,” he said. “If I’m worse than them, then yes I may retire. If I am not worse, maybe I am no better, but I’m not worse, so middle, so I’ll fight.”

    Either way, he's a fucking legend and I'll watch him fight forever.
