    And all you needed to say was Tim Sylvia and I know who you mean.

    I would like Fedor to fight: Sylvia, Barnett, Arlovski and Couture.

    Just to shut the haters up.

    "Being 32 years old, I have four or five good years ahead of me. I plan to make the most of it."


    Thats preposterous. I can name 10 top contenders over 40 years old right now. Randy is 44 going on 45 and beat Gabriel Nap?o and Tim at 44. Easily.

    Age is not really as relevent ass people think. Especially in MMA. In a sport where the rules limit you to a small set of atheltic skills the difference between 25 years old and 30 is significant. In MMA where their is a virtually unlimitd amount of skills to choose athletic careers can extend far longer and not only that, but they have been.

    Sports medicine, supplementation, massage therapy, sophisticated technique, fight frequency, glucosamine......... Over 40 will become very common in the next decade, that is a firm Ill sign on the dotted line prediction

    Hell even in boxing Bernard Hopkins is a legit fighter at age 42 and he beat Jermaine Taylor in the rematch IMO.

    Age is irrelevent these days and Aurelio Miguel won a medal in Judo way past 40 in the Olympics for Brazil. If someone has never trained until their 30's, thats another story. Picking uyp ypur career at 32, 333 and moving to MMA is another.

    Randy Couture,Pawel Nastula,Ron Waterman, Hidehiko Yoshida and many others didnt even debut until 33-36 years of age. waterman is a top fighter at age 43.


    I dont like the age bias, I think age is one of those factors that cout only if you are in a sport that factors in pure athletic ability like track and field. Sylvia could fight till Dan Severns age (winning at 53 although obviously not a top ten contender) and if he acquires and develops skills every year by 40 he will be a monster in every range of fighting - wrestling , kickboxing, grappling.

    The guys who retire early are the brawlers who soak up a lot of damage. Almost every fighter with a well over 40 life span does a great job of preserving their body and relying on developing skill sets, strategy and bodily preservation to fight as long as they'd like.

    Ive seen two 70 year olds grappling in a Judo class and other insane things.Tim is selling himself short and other fighters as well

    Arlovski and Barnett are two fighters with good skill sets to beat Fedor. If barnett took it more seriously and developed a technical stand up game he could pull it off. He wont.........

    Fedor makes technical errors but few people have the skill set to capitalize. Fedor isn't a takedown machine, he mixes up punches and kicks with takedowns so you dont know where to defend to get the takedown and then uses the ground and pound to win. Someone with a counter game up top and a good pummel to takedown game can put him on his back. Fedor is weak defending the back and side mount IMO (relatively) and his guard is excellent but not Roger Gracies; his guard can be passed and he can be beaten on the ground by a skilled guard passer and top fighter with strong holdowns or a fluid submission game

    Sorry Zapp, while you sit and ponde on the fine silky sheets where Leela will one day return to the heavenly glory of Zappicity

    I never trust Sherdog unless its a journalistic source and I then hear it confirmed 3 days later. Fedor will only do this outside the UFC, I cant imagine Fedor in the cage; Dana White is somewhat Darth Vaderish personality-wise

    MMA Junkie and AOL Fanhouse have picked up the report, and they generally don't post it unless it's true.
