Default Oldest pro MMA fighter?

Who is the oldest active professional MMA fighter and how old is he?

I know there are a lot of 40-year-olds (Great to hear). I know Royce is 40 and Couture is 43 (crazy, eh? lol...) - but are there any, say 46-year-old's or 50-year-old's still competing?

To my knowledge, no, I dont know of anyone beyond 46 that is still competing. The only oldest one I know of is Couture apparently, and I had no idea he was still competing.

lol, apparently under a rock. I guess I missed that fight. I don't really keep up with UFC much, I try to, I just enjoy doing the sport and physical side of it instead.

Dan "The Beast" Severn was well over 45 (not sure exact age) while still competing and just recently retired.

I just looked it up and Severn is 52 years old and just fought a few weeks ago.

He truly is "The Beast". Much respect for that guy.

Haha, that's one great thing about MMA - you can age where you can't compete with the best of the best anymore, but you can drop down into some of the smaller events and be the top of the ladder again (for a while anyway).
