Sherdog takes a look at the impressive timeline of Randy Couture:
Aged 39: Fans fearing for his life, he TKOs Liddell to claim the UFC’s light heavyweight title.
Aged 43: Chops down Tim Sylvia over five rounds.
Aged 44: Hands bigger, stronger, younger Gabriel Gonzaga his ass on a garnished platter.
Aged 45: Keeps a competitive pace with anthropomorphic Brock Lesnar.
For all the talk of this fight being a battle of the elder warriors, Big Nog is only 33. That hasn’t kept him from falling apart before our very eyes, with Bloody Elbow claiming Nog’s chin hasn’t held up well during his training camp. So it looks like when it comes to physical conditioning, the old guy is in a way better situation than the kid 13 years his junior.
