Well for starters, Nog is only 32 years old. He isn't necessarily old. With proper training and nutrition, anyone can beat age. You are definitely not going to see a lot of people fighting in the Octagon/MMA when they are 45 years old, though.
Fedor just fought Sylvia, which was not a low-level fight. Sylvia is a dangerous fighter. He is also fighting Arlovski very soon. Fedor will get some more big fights in the near future, as well. He will be fine.
