With Royce vs Ken happening, Sakuraba fighting again and the talks of all these old guys coming out of the wood works and listening to everyone talking about a masters division is getting a little out of hand.. First off the general consensus according to every post about the issue seems to be to participate you have to be 40. Hendos 45, lets toss him in with Royce? Manhoef is 39. he will be 40 this year. lets throw him in against ken shamrock! Or Fedor is 40 next year... How would sherdog react to Militech fighting for the masters division title against fedor? Fact of the matter is age doesn't measure how washed up you are or how abused your body is. I don't think it'll ever work because of this reason alone. I mean Chris Leben is 35 and washed up yet Daniel Cormier is older and ufc champ. If there was a division for the Militechs, Shamrocks, Gracie, Sakurabas, how often do you actually expect them to fight? Younger guys have trouble fighting three times a year. Also injuries are going to be more likely with their age. Having a guy hold a belt for more than 4 title defenses is going to be extremely unlikely. It'd be hard to establish a credible champion in this division. it'll be interm belt after interm belt. you won't have a long reign of dominance unless the yakuza gets involved I'll be up for old guy tournaments, but a division? it'll be a joke and it's unnecessary. and the guys everyone wants in them will most likely not be able to compete with other guys their age.
