Age doesn't mean anything, it's all about physical ability and martial arts discipline. Just don't expect to hop into the UFC tho, you will most likely have to reshape your martial arts skills. Btw taekwando has very little application in the UFC, the one move I can think that I see more than anything is a spinning back kick.

I'd suggest forgetting Tae Kwon Do as much as possible, because all that will do is provide a barrier for the learning of other striking styles.
