At UFC 151, 41-year-old Dan Henderson will attempt to capture UFC gold for the first time in his 15-year career. Standing in his way will be 25-year-old phenom Jon Jones, who is already writing himself into the history books alongside Henderson as one of the best to ever compete in MMA.
While Henderson is a significant underdog heading into the bout, the fact that he has been able to return to title contention at his present age is impressive enough in itself. Win or lose, Henderson will be long-remembered for his ability to remain competitive deep into his legendary career.
However, Henderson isn't the only fighter over the age of 35 to continue causing havoc inside the Octagon. Several competitors are remaining competitive in the twilight of their careers. These are the oldest fighters in each of the UFC's eight divisions.
