The Future Prospects Of The UFCs Old Guard (Part 1)
It seems like more and more of the household names in the UFC are getting to that certain age where thoughts of retirement start to creep in so I decided to write an article assessing the prospects of the "old guard" in the UFC.
As I went through the current roster to make up a list of fighters to write about it turns out there really is a whole bunch of guys in their mid-30's and above so the article had to be split into two parts! The first part deals with current and former champions like Couture, Hughes, Coleman, etc. The second part will come out in a few days and cover other guys like Dan Henderson, Sean Sherk, Rich Franklin and others.
