    Is there any fighter whose UFC career has a longer time span than 21 years and 3 months? If not, who comes in at number two?

    Don't think anyone beats Vitor. Off the top of my head, Andrei, BJ and Nick:

    Arlovski: November 2000 - April 2021 (20 years, 5 months)
    BJ: May 2001 - May 2019 (18 years)
    Nick Diaz: September 2003 - September 2021 (18 years)

    the correct answer is ANDREI ARLOVSKI
    he has fought for 22 years and willl fight again in october

    fedor is going to fight again in october
    that will be 21 years and 5 months


    rampage jackson has fought for 20 years, his last fight was in 2019
    if he fights again, it will be 22 years

    josh barnett has been fighting since 1997. he's supposed to fight again but he keeps failing medical tests, so who knows

    nick diaz will have fought for 20 years if he actually shows up to fight again

    That was Victor Gracie.

    Call me crazy, but i think Oscar De La Hoya is out to prove a point that he "WAS" one of the best boxers in his time. Providing he is off the burrito's and Coke, he is going to school Vitor.
