    Was there many fighters between the ages of 18-23 back in Pride days? Swear there is young guys coming in and whooping ass. When I was that age I wasn't even close to how tough these guys are lol.

    You got the little kids from the 90s that are now grown men and have been training in MA and MMA for their entire lives, pretty much since the UFC got started in the early 90s.

    Has to be it. Was watching that Cody fight thinking damn this young guy would whoop my old ass with one arm. Really impressive how tough some of these young guys are. Just getting out of high school and your in the UFC.

    There weren't many in Pride. Sokoudjou, Okami, Aoki, Melendez, etc, were very young back in the day, but Mousasi was the youngest fighter from Pride that came in my mind (he was like 20 years old).

    Nowadays there are many indeed.
