Silva may of lost, but I'm a fan of his now. He has a lot of potential, very explosive fighter. Look forward to seeing his next fight.

Not the same sport at all, but in baseball, players tend to peak at 27. MMA peak probably depends on how much punishment someone has taken as well.

Just checked, Fitch got his first FOTN after GSP.
I can't think of a fight I enjoyed more this year off the top of my head. Maybe Zombie vs Poirier, maybe.

Had the fight taken place anywhere but Brazil and Fitch would have earned himself a stoppage due to strikes.

That 3rd round was all Fitch - I don't know if I'm more surprised by the fact that it wasn't stopped or the fact that the judges didn't even score round 3 as 10-8 for Fitch!

This was definitely the most impressive Jon Fitch I have ever seen. I agree that he should fight Maia now. Fitch would win.

In MMA is seems to be around 30 which is not there athletic peak but more so where they tend to hit the balance of athleticism, knowing how to train there body, knowledge of technique and experience level seem to all align.

I love seeing photos like this. Helps remind you that it's only a sport. I some times scratch my head a the Diaz mentality of having to hate your opponent.
