    He's probably even older than he's officially listed

    Cuban birth certificates are known for being dodgy and he looked 40 years old when he was 20

    He hasn't won a fight in nearly 3 years though.

    He had a great argument for winning 2 of his last three

    I thought he won two of the three, yes

    Judges are known for being shit so I don't take their opinions seriously

    I wish Yoel would have came to the party about 20 years ago. One of the physically scariest fighters I have ever seen. His wrestling base and explosiveness would have dominated imo, ufc picture would have been very different if he were around. Imagine him and andersen in their primes. He would have made a better lhw imo

    We need Akiyama back.
    He's 45 and as sexy as ever.
    Looks perfect.

    Lol I guess it's impressive that he's still competitive but he's not wrecking everybody like he was a few years ago. He also got into MMA super late and has only had 18 fights, he's not ancient in fight years. Alistair still being competitive after 20 years and being ko'd 14x is more impressive to me. Lots of guys who got late starts have had success when they were older.

    He's like a Cuban version of Bo Jackson

    Anderson vs. Yoel as a final retirement fight for both.

    I don't think it's his age, I think it's his neck. He's a short explosive guy that obviously wants to fight aggressively; he should be able to duck and weave like Mike Tyson. But he can't. So he has to sit back and wait for the counter strike instead. Which makes him a 5'8" counter striker.. doesn't work. And so he's been figured out: just wait longer than he does, and he'll just stare at you for 5 rounds. Touch him once or twice with a jab just to take the round, and you win.
