UFC 153 goes down this Saturday from HSBC Arena in fabulous Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The evening's co-main event pits heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira against Dave "Pee Wee" Herman.
Nogueira has done himself some living after 36 years on the planet. He's seen a few things. He's seen fire, and he's seen rain. He's seen broken arms that he thought would never mend.
But after all this time, here he still is, carrying on in the pro MMA game and now fighting in front of his countrymen for the second time.
So yes, he's getting on in years, but he's not the only one. Far from it, actually. To illustrate, here are the 10 best UFC fighters over 35.
This ranks fighters based on their skill sets right now. It is not an all-time list. Ages, overall records and their records over their last five fights were considered.
Sit back. Or turn the bed to your favorite incline setting. Clap down the lights. Pop open a bottle of Ensure. And enjoy.
