    The idea for this thread was based on a comment in another thread regarding Glover Texiera.

    Fights before their 40th birthday do not count.

    Anderson Silva is clearly not the GOAT. He is 1-6 during his 40s. Yoel Romero is 1-5.

    Meanwhile Glover is 2-0 with two finishes against top ranked opposition.

    Who you got?

    EDIT: PED, TRT are disqualifiers.

    EDIT 2: MMA Junkie clearly saw this thread: https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/list...ufc-glover-teixeira-randy-couture-yoel-romero

    Dan Henderson won the strikeforce LHW title, Fight of the Year vs Shogun and should have been the MW champ if it were not for Bispings hometown decision.

    And the first man to knock out Fedor

    Trt doesnt count. Every 40 yr old would do that if they were allowed

    Honorable mention to Hunt. Yes he has a bunch of losses but he has wins over Big Country , Black Beast , Mir and Bigfoot. And he faced a bunch of killers in his 40 too (Reem , Stipe , Werdum , Blades )

    The fact that Hendo unofficially won the MW strap at age 46 says it all

    Yoel, DC, Maia and Anderson should be in this conversation, these guys fought champions, divisional goats(Stipe), and future world champions all in their 40's.

    Just because these guys didn't win all their fights in their 40's doesn't mean they weren't extremely good, they're all some of the best 40 something year old fighters of all time.

    Hendo and Randy obviously had some great results, Aleksei Oleinik deserves some mention as well.

    I heard he is getting ready for his run in the 40's by doing full contact sparring with heavyweights in alleyways.
