physically, genetically yeah it pretty much is a steadfast rule in Hockey, Football, Basketball and mma because it's how the body works.

Maybe a fighter such as Couture can reach his skill peak past 29, but physically the body starts to decline once you get past 29. It's pretty common knowledge and Joe Rogan even mentioned it once explicitly like I just said. It's comical really, the hatred thrown at me for something that's scientific fact. Maybe a fighter will learn a new technique in training or add something to his diet that actually makes him stronger past 29 but the rule is a pretty common reality, it's why hockey teams don't like trading for guys over 29. Sure you can do things to placate the effect but you can't reverse evolution or overcome genetics (unless you take hgh)

Nonsense. Now you're talking about two entirely different things. The body slowing down doesn't equate to a fighter reaching his maximum potential. Your initial statement was that a fighter peaks at 29, and we've seen plenty of fighters disprove this notion. Bisping is only just hitting his stride. Evans stepped up his game exponentially in his 30s. Anderson Silva became a dominant force at 31-32. Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, heck, even Chael Sonnen has been fighting at his best in his 30s. There are plenty of fighters who become the best they've ever been after 30. Of course the body slows down eventually, but your 'prime' can also include the addition of a new skill-set, diet, or training regime.

It's not a hard and steadfast rule as it doesn't apply to everyone. You can call it a stat and namedrop Joe Rogan all you like, but empirical evidence exists that fighters and athletes in their 30s are just as good as they were in their 20s, if not better. And no one is throwing hatred your way. They're simply disagreeing. Stop being so sensitive.

Soccer is more athletic than Hockey and Basketball, and plays in that can peak at any age. 33 isn't that much.

This is 100% opinion and not fact. I have played all 3 of these sports for years and Ice Hockey was by far the harder of the 3 and I could skate very well before I started playing. But to others they might find a different one to require more athletic ability.
