33 isn't old when you have had only a few fights. He may have some wrestling wear and tear but he has no punching wear and tear on him. Hendo is 41. Anderson 38. Sonnen is what? 33? 33 is not old unless you are a Pride vet or are just a freak like Hendo.

And yea agree. Not sure if the other poster has watched him fight...but Bigfoot, Barnett, and Mir are about as good as it gets before the elite guys. Once Cormier destroys Mir he will have had a better resume than Cain did when he got a title shot. Way better.
