The average age of a top 10 HW on Sherdog and the contenders list is 33.4 and there are only 2 fighters under 20 (Minakov and Volkov). 7 of the top 15 are over 35. Velasquez is only 32 but has experienced his fair share of injuries. JDS is only 30 but looks 40. I have to imagine that in 3 years the landscape will look entirely different but I don't see any guys that are that young and look primed to take over the division. For a comparison, FW features 6 fighters in the top 10 that re under 30 (including the champ) and no fighters over 35. The contenders list includes another 4 guys under 30. I only looked at those 2 divisions and to be fair, at a quick glance MW looks pretty old too, but not as bad as HW and MW has some younger guys that look like they could break through. MMA is getting bigger and attracting better athletes but the HW division's future still looks kind of bleak. Am I being too harsh?
