Does anyone think there should be a mid life crisis weight class at this point?
All of these middle-aged martial artists are climbing out of the woodwork for a piece of the MMA pie.
Also to put it into perspective, JCVD retired from competitive martial arts in 1980.
Chuck Norris at 70> JCVD at 50
Umm...no. Even back in the day of Walker, Texas Ranger, it was obvious Chuck wasn't doing half of his own fight scenes (you can easily tell whenever his character does any sort of fancy kick or quick movement).
And yeah, JCVD is old but Ron Van Clief was 51 when he participated in UFC 1. Maybe it is a mid-life crisis and maybe it's not. But with his pedigree of martial arts experience, who cares?
