I've always had respect for Ken Shamrock. 42 years old and he's clearly in superior shape. As people get up in age you have to train harder to achieve the same results. But being 42 will make it difficult to compete at this level. Why not have an old timers match, sort of like MLB's old timers game. Seriously, this is not an insult to Shamrock. Shamrock vs Gracie. Something to that effect. I beleive fans would love to see something like that. Once in awhile on the pay per views UFC could have an old timers match. Old school guys who still want to fight, but have them fight eachother. As the human body get's older, believe it or not your endurance can get better,( this can happen between mid 30's and mid 40's) however your reflexes and explosiveness decrease. This makes it dangerous for Ken or anyone in their 40's to compete with younger fighters. He feels like he can go all night, but he's getting rocked out. I have a bit of experience with this. Anyway, old timer fights. Run with it UFC.
