    Largely depends on genetics, lifestyle factors & style. The heavier guys can have a bit longer as power is typically the last thing to go. Fedors style of fighting favors the youth, he relies heavily on explosive movement and closing distance to land shots, he always lead himself wide open for a counter but no one could capitlize on it as he was so incredibly quick...also probably doesn't help that he particular prefers to brawl these days instead of using his aggressive striking to engage in a grappling exchange.

    Briggs is on the wrong side of 40's and still moves better than most heavyweights of today, but he obviously has pharmaceutical help.

    Hey I agree with you about Fedor being past it. I was just pointing out that Yoel is 41 because you said the days of old fighters are over, ya prick.

    “I seriously doubt that you will ever see guys past their 40, achieve any significant accomplishments and beat world class fighters. ”

    I believe the opposite about the age at which someone can no longer compete. I think that in the coming decades athletes will have longer and longer shelf lives; they will be able to retain high levels of physicality well past their physical primes. Modern medicine, advances in nutrition and training, and a better understanding of how the body functions will see to that. In fact, this has already happened. It wasn’t long ago that age 30 was seen by most as being the expiration date for an athlete.

    Guaranteed he didnt watch rounds 2-3 lol

    The major discussion after the fight was if round 1 was 10/8 or not because the last 2 rounds were fedors.

    That was round 1 in which he teed off but never landed a clean shot { most picked off by gloves }. Why don't you play round 2 and 3 and show how Fedor got beat up?

    lol, yeah steroids and other PEDs help people perform better for longer, then die earlier. In MMA where the ufc doesn't even have 5 fighters per weight class than anyone can name has older guys fighting, mostly other older guys. Modern medicine isn't doing anything besides juice.

    The last 2 rounds were Maldonado's , the 3d arguably a 10 -8. Even if 2 and 3 were 10-9 for Maldonado, that would have made it a tie. The big difference was that Fedor got severely beaten up, whereas Maldonado absorbed the power shots with his gloves. Maldonado clearly got robbed, probably because the fight was in Russia.
